Following the ban on fax machines by the Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock , our fax machine has now been turned off. We will gradually be updating all our headed notepaper and compliment slips but please take this as notification that we can no longer receive or send faxes.
Our nurses run clinics morning and afternoon. They carry out blood pressure measurement, immunisations for children and travel, ear syringing, dressings and a host of other services. The receptionist will provide details if required.
For more information on immunisations visit http://www.immunisation.nhs.uk/.
The HCA takes routine blood samples for testing and does blood pressure measurements at the Phlebotomy clinic every morning.
The samples are sent to the hospital laboratory at 12.30 and 16.00 each day and so the appointments will be made to coincide with those collections.
You may book appointments with the phlebotomist at reception over the phone, in person or online by registering for Patient Access.
The doctors carry out antenatal checks during normal surgeries. The midwife holds a weekly Friday clinic. Please ask at reception for details.
Postnatal checks are done at 8 weeks. An appointment can be made at reception.
Consult the doctor within normal surgery appointments.
This clinic usually runs once a month on the first Friday between 13.00 and 15.00. Please speak to the Health Visitor for more information.
Patients with long-term conditions, such as, diabetes or asthma, will be invited to the surgery for an annual review in the month of their birthday. Patients with multiple conditions will be seen once for everything rather than having to come in several times, often repeating the same tests. It's a kind of human MOT!
Smear tests are carried out by the Practice Nurse by appointment.

From the 1st September 2017 Cropredy surgery no longer offers private travel vaccinations and advice due to pressures on Surgery resources. We have a contractual duty to provide some NHS vaccinations and will continue to do so but advise all patients who are travelling overseas to go to a travel clinic for their needs. These specialist centres can provide information as well as vaccinations.
Travel services are offered at the following centres:
If you need to find out what health care that you need for your trip, please see the Government website www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice and NaTHNaC - Home
Please see our Travel Health page for more details.
When joining the practice you may be asked to book an appointment with the Practice Nurse to review and plan your healthcare.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to visit a travel clinic such as Boots, Frosts Pharmacy or Superdrug for immunisations and advice. We do not provide private travel services. We do offer those vaccinations that are provided free to NHS patients but will no longer be providing comprehensive advice and recommendations.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Whether you plan a last minute holiday or have one planned two years ahead, it is worth considering vaccinations and/or malaria tablets that may be recommended for your destination.
Most vaccines take 3 - 4 weeks to become effective so we ask you to book in for travel advice and vaccinations 6 - 8 weeks before departure.
The following travel vaccinations are usually available free on the NHS:
These vaccines are usually free because they protect against diseases thought to represent the greatest risk to public health if they were brought into the country.
If fever develops during or after a trip, seek competent medical help immediately.
