Our practice nurses will advise you on the recommendations for your chosen destination and arrange your vaccinations. Please make an appointment as soon as you book your holiday.
All routine developmental checks are carried out at the surgery by the doctors and practice nurse who will discuss the vaccination program with you.

University students who are wanting to book an appointment for the Depo-provera contraceptive injection will need to inform the receptionist that this is what the appointment is for, so that we do not book these incorrectly.
Disease Management Clinics
Regular reviews of patients with asthma, diabetes and other long-term illnesses are carried out by our practice nurses. You will usually be called in for an appointment during your birthday month.
We offer this service to over 65s, or ill patients who cannot attend the local outreach clinics. Blood tests can only be booked before 11am and cannot be done on a Saturday.
Please call after 10am to enquire about your test results, as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times. Call one of the main surgery numbers (01782 212066, 206866, 206566, 212305) and choose option three from the main menu.
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.
Harley Street Medical Centre is a training practice with close ties to Keele University Medical School. We train junior doctors, those who have recently qualified and those wishing to be GP's. A lot goes on "behind the scenes" with respect to teaching, training, mentoring and assessing, and this is organised by the practice team.
From a patients perspective what does all this mean? The qualified Dr in training (trainee) may be sitting in with your Dr or your Dr may be sitting in with the trainee!. You may be asked to be videoed on occassions . Remember with all of the above you can always say no to having any involvement with the trainees. The trainees are usually with the Practice for between 4 to 6 months and hence you will notice quite a turnover in Drs over the year. We hope you find the teaching and training status of the Practice acceptable and not a hinderance.
Baby vaccination clinics are held every Tuesday morning by our practice nurses, Sister Margaret Roberts, Sister Rachael Bourne and Sister Sarah Wood.
