GOV.UK: coronavirus – guidance and support
Government information and advice.
If you have a long term medical condition such as Asthma, Diabetes, Chronic Kidney Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis or one of several other conditions, you will usually need to have a regular check-up at least once each year. Most of our annual check-ups are done by our Nursing Team and we will contact you when you need to be seen and advise you who to make an appointment with.
If your symptoms change, you feel your condition is getting worse or your medication is no longer effective do please make an appointment to see your GP at any time and don't wait until your annual check-up.
Our Nursing Team run all the usual GP treatment room services, such as wound dressings and removal of stitches. In addition we offer a variety of specific clinics which include:
Travel vaccinations are required for many countries to protect your health while you are outside of the UK.
You may wish to use this link to assess your own needs for vaccination: https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/
Please note that understanding and taking precautions against diseases and risk without available vaccines is also vital.
If you are planning to travel, please request a travel form from reception, or download it below.
It must be returned at least 4 weeks before travel, most vaccines takes at least 10 days to be effective and we do not have appointment capacity to accommodate late travel plans or late-seeking of travel advice.
If your travel plans are in less than 4 weeks, you will need to seek travel advice and vaccinations privately at a travel clinic or pharmacy that provides these services.
Once your form is received, the nurse will assess your requirements and you will receive a text message to advise on the next step. (Please ensure we have the correct mobile number for you). If no vaccines are required, you will receive an information pack in the post.
Some vaccines for travel are not available on the NHS but are offered privately, if adequate time is available before travel. Please contact us to confirm which we can offer privately.
Please note, we are unable to offer Yellow Fever vaccine at this practice.

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.
The Patient Reference Group (PRG) refers to a group of patients taking an active interest in the health care provided by the Surgery. The group is designed to work with the local practices to offer the patient perspective on services that are provided. The PRG is a virtual community that provides it's views to the Surgery by way of feedback from a series of questionnaires throughout the year which will help the Surgery understand the views of its patients.
The aims of the PRG is to improve communication, to encourage patients to take more responsibility for their health and to provide practical support. The PRG will be used to gain feedback on proposed changes to services that the Practice is looking to make.
Any patient who is registered at Wellington Practice can apply to take part in the Patient Reference Group. In order to get the most out of this new initiative it is vital that we have a fully representative cross section of our patients. We actively encourage and welcome members from Wellington Practice’s vast Ethnic Community and Disabled community to take part to ensure that all views are heard and considered.
If you are interested in joining the Patient Reference Group please send an email to Wellington.email@example.com . Alternatively you can write to us. Letters should be handed to reception who will forward onto Admin on your behalf.
