Health Visiting Service

The service offers support and encouragement to families through the early years from pregnancy and birth to primary school.  Every family with children under 5 has a named health visitor.  Information on the health visiting service should be in the personal child health record (Red Book).

Health visitors are qualified nurses who have undertaken further specialist training in child and family health and child development.

Infrequent Attenders

If you are aged 16 – 75 and have not seen a doctor or nurse at the practice in the last 3 years, or are over 75 and have not been seen for the last 12 months, you are welcome to make an appointment with a nurse to have a physical health check.  It is useful to have up-to-date information on your medical records to provide baseline information in case you have health problems in the future.

Midwifery Service

A midwife is available within the practice. Midwives are keen to see pregnant women early on in their pregnancy. If you think you are pregnant, you can do a self referral to the hospital of your choice using that hospital’s website.  You will usually be seen by a midwife according to a schedule of appointments.  Please see separate section on the Midwifery Service for details.

Physiotherapy – Self Referral for Bromley patients

If you are aged 18 years or older and have back, neck, joint or general muscle problems you can self-refer to physiotherapy without the need for a GP appointment.

You can still see your GP to be referred, but self-referral aims to give you rapid access direct (via physioDirect) to a physiotherapy telephone assessment.

The physiotherapist can assess you over the phone to understand your needs and expectations and assist in providing advice and guidance about your condition.  This will include agreeing on appropriate next step in your care. This may be self-management, an exercise class, face-to-face physiotherapy, or an onward referral to hospital.

If you feel you would benefit from this service, all you have to do is call 01689 88 77 10.  The phone lines are open Monday to Friday from 8am-4pm.  Outside of these times you will be able to leave a voicemail and they will return your call as soon as they can.  When you call, a member of the team will register you on their system.  it would be helpful if you could have your NHS number to hand.

For more information, visit the Vita Healthgroup website: www.vitahealthgroup.co.uk

We also have a First Contact physiotherapist based at London Lane Clinic. First contact physiotherapists (FCPs) are specialist physiotherapists with extensive expertise in the clinical assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. Patients with MSK conditions can bypass the appointment with a GP, and go straight to get help with a specialist physiotherapist. Instead of the traditional method where you are seen by a GP then referred for a physio appointment which can take up to 6 weeks or more, you can book an appointment directly with a physiotherapist via the receptionist, which means you won’t need to wait for a referral from a doctor.

Vaccinations

Routine vaccinations for all ages are available during surgery times by appointment with our nurses.

 

Shingles

You’re eligible for the shingles vaccine when you’re aged 70 to 79.

When you’re eligible, you can have the shingles vaccination at any time of year.

The shingles vaccine is not available on the NHS to anyone aged 80 and over because it seems to be less effective in this age group.
