We provide a post-operative care service for registered and temporarily registered patients who need to have sutures removed and general wound care following a hospital day case or inpatient procedure
Appointments for this clinics can only be made at the request of the doctor or nurse. You will usually be asked to report to the receptionist and advice her that you have been asked to make the relevant appointment. An appointment date and time will then be sent to you. If the given appointment is inconvenient for you then please phone the surgery and rearrange it.
Health visitors are nurses who have had additional training to care for the family. Traditionally they have looked after the needs of mothers from 10 days after the birth, a point at which the Midwife relinquishes care. They are also the first port of call if you have any concerns about your child. Again, traditionally, they will remain involved in the care of your child until he/she is 5 years old.
Health Visitors also care for the needs of Elderly people and are always willing to attend an elderly person by appointment to discuss any special needs that they may have.
Your social prescribing link worker can talk to you about a problem you have or a change you would like to make. If you’re feeling stressed by work, money, housing or loneliness, or if you’d like to make some lifestyle changes to help you manage a health condition, ask your GP or a member of the practice team to refer you for social prescribing. Your link worker will give advice, information and encouragement and connect you with suitable local services to support you.
If the doctor or nurse has asked you to have a blood test then you are required to attend one of the local phlebotomy services.
Call 0203 930 0245 for a booked appointment there are no walk in services at the hospitals
We regret that the surgery can not make appointment for patients to have their blood taken at the surgery. We do sometimes make exceptions for the elderly.
Please call between 2.30pm and 4.30pm to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
When you require a blood test as part of your treatment you will be referred to the phlebotomy clinic for the sample to be taken.
Blood tests for children under 13 have to be booked using the electronic referral service via the GP
Fasting Requests:You must have no food or drink with the exception of plain water for a minimum of 14 hours prior to the time the sample is taken
The walk in clinic at the Princess Royal University Hospital is no longer available for GP requested blood tests. Instead, you will be able to have your bloods taken in a number of local GP practices by appointment. Walk in clinics will continue at Orpington and Beckenham Beacon.
Any patient requiring an INR blood test can still go to the PRUH walk in centre.
You can book cancel and rearrange an appointment by contacting the Bromley GP Alliance directly on 0203 930 0245
NHS Bromley CCG Phlebotomy Services Patient Information Leaflet
A doctor can issue a fit note for absence from work due to sickness once the patient has been absent for 7 working days. The first 7-days of absence may be certificated by yourself by completing a "Self Certification" form available from the Surgery or your employers.
Occasionally employers insist on a medical certificate issued by a doctor, even if 7 working days have not elapsed. In these circumstances a private certificate can be issued, however an administrative charge will be applied, currently the charge is £16.00
We are often asked to write certificates or produce statements to support our patients in areas others than employment. Examples are: fitness to travel, fitness to attend a gym, fitness to fly when pregnant, use of a trolley on a golf course, fitness to perform on stage, to take medical factors into consideration for examinations, help with transfer at airports and stations ..... We are usually happy to do such a certificate and often without having to see you. However on some occasions we may ask you to make an appointment with you doctor.
There is a charge for writing such certificates.
