· Provide symptom information to clinicians, prior to your appointment
If you become pregnant, you will be given a 'booking appointment' during which the midwife will ask you a few questions and carry out some general health checks. You will be seen regularly throughout your pregnancy either at the practice or at the local hospital, or both.
Child Health Immunisations
These are run by our nurses at Lakeside and appointments are sent out automatically from the Health Authority.
Health Monitoring Clinics
Annual checks are performed by our doctors and nursing team. The clinics offer advice and general health checkups to patients with chronic illnesses. These include diabetes, asthma, hypertension, thyroid, heart disease and other chronic disease clinics.
We do offer minor surgery services. Please discuss this with your doctor who will then arrange for you to be given an appointment.
The doctors are happy to carry out medicals, eg insurance and driving licence, by appointment. Do ask at reception for the charges for these services. Patient paternity testing and employment medicals are also undertaken. These must be made at reception with the necessary paperwork.
Travel Immunisations/Vaccinations/Travel Health Advice
You will be offered a call from the nurse to discuss your vaccination requirements before an appointment is booked.
Lakeside Surgery is an authorised Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre. A charge will be made for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS. A list of these charges is held at reception.
If you are a Lakeside Healthcare patient and fall into one of the following categories, you are eligible for a FREE flu vaccination, given by a health care professional, here at the surgery – NO APPOINTMENT NEEDED…
