If your respiratory symptoms are deteriorating or you have any concerns, please make an appointment to see either a practice nurse or GP.

Although Nipa Patel, clinical pharmacist, is surgery lead for respiratory care, all practice nurses undertake respiratory reviews.


DON'T FORGET TO BOOK YOUR FLU VACCINE THIS AUTUMN - we have Saturday clinics at Sunny Meed -  dates will be advertised in  September

 


Allergies

We would advise that it is usual for all antihistamines to be purchased 'over the counter' directly from a pharmacist (in line with CCG prescribing guidelines).

We recommend that all patients become familiar (or refresh their knowledge) with using adrenaline 'auto injectors' (eg. epipen, jext) by watching the videos below.

Patients prescribed auto-injectors are invited in annually for review.

JEXT:

EPIPEN:


Ear Wax 

Please find below a link to the North West Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group patient leaflet that all our patients must read before attending to have their ear/s checked or irrigated. 

NWS CCG Patient leaflet on Earwax

Upon either following the advice from your doctor or after administering the various preparations book an appointment with our Healthcare Assistant to have your ear/s checked and potentially irrigated.  

If booking online for one ear please book a single 10 minute slot with our Healthcare Assistant, if booking online for both ears please book a double 20 minute slot with our Healthcare Assistant. 

You must read this leaflet before going ahead with any treatment or check. We will ask at your appointment if this has taken place.
