We offer a range of services, which we believe are of most value to the majority of our patients. If there are services that you would like to see introduced or have any suggestions as to how you think we might improve upon existing services please let us know here.

Providing the highest quality care that can be delivered within the limited available resources means we need your support and understanding too.

You can help by managing minor illnesses yourself (see Pharmacy First), by making sure you follow treatment instructions, and calling to cancel any appointments you don’t need/cannot attend in advance.

Don’t worry; tell us by taking a Repeat Prescription Request Form from the front desk, fill in your contact details and add a green sticker (found by the Prescription letterbox) and post it in the Prescription letterbox.

The different contracts are run by NHS England (South East Regional Team),  NHS Hampshire and Isle of Wight Integrated Care Board and the IW County Council. Priorities are set to meet national and local needs.  Co-ordination with GP Practices is organised into localities: South Wight Medical Practice is in the South Locality.

Health screening is available by appointment with a member of the Nursing Team in our screening clinics. The Practice nursing team will check your blood pressure, cholesterol and urine and give diet, exercise and smoking advice.

The surgery holds a supply of hearing aid batteries. Please contact the Dispensary if you require replacement batteries.

These are done by appointment with the Practice Nurse

We offer numerous various Nurse-led clinics for long term conditions such as Diabetes, Anti-Coagulation, Asthma & COPD.  All clinics are appointment based.

The Doctor can carry out certain minor operations and this will often avoid the need for a hospital attendance. Please make an appointment to see your Doctor in the first instance.

When registering with the Practice all patients are offered a routine health check. This is a valuable opportunity to discuss health needs and for your past medical history to be reviewed. We are required to record ethnic origin.

The Doctors are able to complete private medical insurance claim forms and private certificates and to carry out medical examinations for insurance, driving, employment and sport. These do not form part of their NHS work and therefore a fee is payable.

The Practice holds a Phlebotomy clinic (blood taking) at all sites. Please phone the Practice on 01983 730257 to book an appointment.

Please note that different types of blood tests are taken at certain times.

We offer advice on medication, vaccination and general health care to enable you to plan your holiday safely.  A holiday vaccination form is available from reception (or can be downloaded from the next page) and where possible it is advisable to complete this two months prior to your departure date. This will give the nurse enough time to check your current immunisation status and the requirements for your destination and return the form to you so appointments can be made if needed. Some vaccinations need to be given at least four weeks in advance to ensure cover. The NHS does not cover the cost of all medication needed for overseas travel and there may be a charge.

Before you travel, it’s important to find out whether you will need vaccinations for the country you’re visiting. The following websites will help you.
• Travel Health
• Fit for Travel
• Masta 
• Gov.uk for specific country travel advice

The UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) lets you get state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free.

If you have a UK European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) it will be valid until the expiry date on the card. Once it expires, you’ll need to apply for a GHIC to replace it.


Please contact the surgery to discuss your travel needs further (please be aware that there is a cost for some vaccinations).  Alternatively, these services are readily available at certain Pharmacies and Private Clinics – contact your local pharmacy for more information.

These are run by specially trained and qualified Nurses and a full range of services is available for contraception advice, cervical smears and other routine health checks. We feel it is important for all women between the ages of 25 and 64 to have regular cervical smears. Those who require urgent advice about emergency contraception should contact either the Practice Nurse or the Doctor. Separate Clinics are run for HRT and continence advice.
