St James Surgery
The practice nursing team monitor patients with chronic illness such as asthma, diabetes, thyroid, epilepsy and coronary heart disease on a regular basis.
They also currently offer the following services:
The health care assistants are responsible for the anticoagulant clinics as well as ECGs, dressings, NHS Health Checks, Smoke-Stop clinics and Phlebotomy.
The Clinical Commissioning Group employs community nurses who provide skilled nursing care to those patients who are housebound. This includes chronic illness, wound management, palliative and terminal care. They work alongside the surgery team and hospital-based nurses, in order to plan and deliver the care needed.
We offer a full range of confidential contraceptive advice and services. This includes the combined "Pill", the "Mini-pill", injections, implants, IUDs (coil) and IUS (Mirena coil). Emergency contraception is offered also, either as an IUD, or as the "Morning-after pill"
Health visitors are registered nurses with additional training in preventative care, health promotion and child health for those under the age of five. Health visitors can offer advice, information and support about a range of issues:
Health visitors visit at home to talk in private and also run child health clinics and parents and baby groups. Health visitors can be contacted on 01380 732565. They are now based at Devizes Community Hospital.
All physiotherapy appointments are now held at Devizes Community Hospital.
Counsellors visit the surgery several times a week. Referral is made only through a doctor.
We provide Minor Surgery on the premises. Appointments are made by referral from one of the doctors.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include providing information about which countries (and areas within countries) that you are visiting, to determine what vaccinations are required. Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:
It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - a second and even a third 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/third appointment needs to be several weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines time to work.
If you are thinking of booking a travel consultation and vaccination appointment with the surgery, you can download your Pre-travel Questionnaire Form here, or drop into the surgery to collect one. Please complete the form and take to your travel consultation appointment.
Alternatively please complete the form and e-mail back to email@example.com before your appointment date.
You do NOT need a medical certificate (Med3) from a doctor unless you have been unwell for more than seven days.
If you are under hospital outpatient care, please obtain your certificate from the hospital doctor.
If you are off work for four, or more, days in a row you need to fill out a self-certificate form SC2.
You can obtain this from reception, the Post Office, DSS or on the HMRC website . It does not require a doctor’s signature. If you are self-employed you can also obtain a copy of SC2 from the local DSS office.
For any illness lasting longer than seven days you will need to see or speak with a doctor for him/her to issue a sickness certificate (F.med3) and for any subsequent renewal of the certificate. If your employer insists on a sickness certificate for 7 days or less a charge will be levied.
Please note that we are unable to pre-date medical certificates.
There are many services that are not provided by the NHS.
A fee will therefore be charged for the services listed below:
Please note:This is only a basic list covering the non-NHS services that we find are in most demand; there will be other similar services which will also attract a fee.
Medical Examinations take at least half an hour. Those which involve driving licence renewal should be booked well in advance of the licence expiry date and the patient should make an appointment with an Optician to have that part of the paperwork completed before attending their examination appointment at the surgery.
A list of the fees that the surgery charges is displayed at the reception desk as well as on this website.
*To be reviewed JULY 2021
** Charge applies to non UK residents from countries without a reciprocal arrangement
