The annual campaign for vaccinations against flu usually take place from October - March (as long as stock lasts) for those age 65 and over as well as those living with certain long term conditions or in the ‘At Risk’ group of patients. Please contact the surgery to book an appointment. If you are unsure about qualifying, please ask at reception and they will be able to advise you.
‘At Risk' patients include:
If you are over 65 and haven't had your pneumococcal vaccination, you will be offered this as well.
An NHS physiotherapist from the Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust holds a weekly clinic here. Patients who are referred to Physiotherapy have the option of booking an appointment (via Choose and Book system) at several local sites including at Cookham Medical Centre. Please note bookings can NOT be made via our surgery reception.
Jon Cooke, a Chartered & State Registered Physiotherapist has a practice here. He will be available for private consultations at the surgery on Wednesdays
Asthma reviews can either be done during the Wednesday morning Long Term Conditions Clinic or booked at other times to give patients greater choice of appointment times
A full range of family planning services including hormone replacement therapy and preconception advice is offered by our practice.
We advise all women between the ages of 25 and 49 to have a cervical smear every 3 years, and those between 50 and 64 to have one every 5 years. Please book an appointment with a Practice Nurse.
Patients are sent a reminder letter to make an appointment when their review is due. We like to see all our Diabetic patients annually, with a 6 month interim 'mini-review' with our health care assistant. Our Dietitian is available to see all our Diabetic patients on a regular basis. We hold a Long Term Condition Clinic on Wednesday mornings but appointments can be booked at other times if unable to attend that clinic.
Patients who are confined to their homes and need nursing services may need to be referred by the doctor to the District Nurse service. District nurses are employed by the Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. Patients may also be referred to the District nurses by the hospitals when discharged from hospital if they need further at home.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete and hand in a Travel Vaccination Form which will be reviewed by the nurse, who will then contact you to give advice and/or to arrange an appointment if necessary. The nurse will need to know which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to do this as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as there may be limited availability of travel appointments with the practice nurse to give the vaccinations. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not all held as stock. Your appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines time to take effect.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. Please see our charges sheet or ask at reception.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
