Patient Online Services
This practice currently offers the facility for all patients to order online, view and print a list of theirrepeat prescriptions for drugs, medicines or appliances.
In addition to general medical consultations we are pleased to be able to provide specialist clinics and services
Smears are usually performed by the Practice Nurse or by the Doctor, the choice is yours. The test can detect cell changes in the cervix (neck of the womb), that can sometimes lead to cancer in the future. If the changes are present, treatment is nearly always simple, effective and of a minor nature.
We recommend a test every 3 years and we would especially encourage ladies aged 25-65 to have it done. Patients who have had a total hysterectomy do not need a smear. Ask your GP or Practice Nurse if you are not sure
Childhood Immunisations are very important - you will be contacted when your scheduled immunisations are due. If you have any questions regarding immunisation contact the practice nurse directly
The Practice offers a full contraceptive and family planning service. Please make an appointment at Reception with one of the Doctors or Nurses. We can now offer coil fitting and checks which are done by Dr Railton
Hormonal contraception may be possible up to 72 hours after unprotected intercourse or if an 'accident' occurs with other methods. Please contact the Surgery during normal surgery hours and have this treatment as soon as is reasonably possible. We will give you an appointment the same day and consider requests for emergency contraception to be a reasonable use of our emergency appointments. Shropdoc can also be contacted throughout the weekend if needed
The Practice Nurse immunises children under 5 years of age by appointment. Adult immunisations are also by appointment with the Practice Nurse. It is no longer recommended that adults have a tetanus injection every 10 years as long as they have had at least 5 boosters during their lifetime - we can advise you if there is a need to give you a tetanus booster.
Both doctors perform minor surgical procedures which may include the removal of certain skin cysts, moles, in-growing toenails, incision of abscesses and injections of arthritic joints.All minor operations are carried out at Ditton Surgery
We can offer a full range of foreign travel immunisations but NOT Yellow Fever. You may well need time to have a course, so try to come about eight weeks in advance. The practice Nurse can give up-to-date advice but we request all travellers obtain an up to date advice letter from Masta. This is a telephone advice service run by the School of Tropical Medicine – which always has the most up to date travel information available.
Ask for our Masta leaflet at reception for more details about travel immunisations. A charge is payable for some travel immunisations.The MASTA Travellers Healthline phone number is 0906 5501402
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
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.
