There are many services that you can self-refer for.
The practice participates in the Haringey Minor Ailments Scheme. The scheme offers patients the choice to consult with a local pharmacist for minor ailments.
If you are able to access this service, our receptionists will guide you how to register for the minor ailments scheme with a local pharmacy. For more information please contact reception.
If you require travel advice, please book an appointment with the practice nurse.
Please note that these services can only be provided to patients registered with JS Medical Practice and the practice may not be able to provide vaccines if they are not available nationally.
The following travel vaccinations are not covered by the NHS:
The nearest travel clinic to the Surgery is the Nomad Travel Store & Medical Centre, 3 Wellington Terrace, Turnpike Lane, London N8 0EP. Tel 020 88897014. They do provide the yellow fever vaccine should you require this, as they are registered as a yellow fever centre. Please book your travel advice appointment with the practice nurse 6-8 weeks before your travel date to ensure there is enough time for you to complete your vaccinations before you travel.
We undertake a range of non-NHS Services. There are different levels of professional fees for these non-NHS services for which the patient is responsible.
The practice may complete patient medical reports as required, for which there will be a charge according to national standard rates set by the British Medical Association and comparison with Medeconomics current Fees schedule. The fee is charged as these reports are not part of routine NHS work. If you require a medical report completed, please discuss this with a GP or receptionist to ensure we are able to deal with your request as sometimes we may need to clarify the nature of the medical report to assess if we can complete this. Medical report appointments usually require double appointments with the GP.
Please note; we do not provide personal references for employment or any other reason.
Why does it sometimes take my GP a long time to complete my form?
Time spent completing forms and preparing reports takes the GP away from the medical care of his or her patients. Most GPs have a very heavy workload and paperwork takes up an increasing amount of their time, so many GPs find they have to take some paperwork home at night and weekends since much of this work is non-NHS care related.
I only need the Doctor's signature - what is the problem?
When a doctor signs a certificate or completes a report, it is a condition of remaining on the Medical Register that they only sign what they know to be true to the best of their knowledge from the medical records.
In order to complete even the simplest of forms, therefore, the doctor might have to check the patient's entire medical record. Carelessness or an inaccurate report can have serious consequences for the doctor with the General Medical Council (the doctors' regulatory body) or even the Police.
You will be able to choose, with the help of your GP, up to at least four hospitals or clinics.
What to Expect
Your GP will discuss with you the reasons for your referral and will offer a choice of hospitals that meet your needs. Once you have decided which hospital you wish to attend, an administrator, within the Practice, will contact you. You will be asked to collect some paperwork from Reception. This is your referral confirmation details
Please keep these in a safe place.
