A full range of contraceptive services is available (eg pill, cap, intra-uterine device, implants) by appointment at reception. We also provide advice on safer sex and abortion - all these are in strict confidence. Young people can also discuss teenage sexual health by appointment at the weekly family planning clinics held at Rothwell and Desborough.
These are held in both centres and are to ensure that the child is growing and developing normally. Our Health Visitors are available to give advice and support.
We have a phlebotomy outreach service from Kettering General Hospital for five mornings per week. Rothwell – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday and Desborough on a Wednesday.
These are arranged by your own doctor and performed in the surgery.
When a smear is due, a letter will be sent to you. You will then need to call reception and book an appointment with the practice nurse. If you wish to know more about this procedure and why we consider it advisable, you can discuss this with either your doctor or the nurse.
Routine childhood immunisations are held on Thursday mornings at the Rothwell Medical Centre, and on Wednesday mornings at the Desborough Surgery.
Some podiatry (foot care) services are available at the Rothwell Medical Centre, either through your own doctor or by self-referral. Please ring 01536 410357/418298. Self-referral forms are available from reception.
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 which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. Not all travel immunisation is available on the NHS and depending upon where you are travelling to you may be charged a fee for some injections.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as a second 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 appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Please complete a Travel Form and return it to the surgery as soon as possible and at least 8 weeks before you travel.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
The NHS does not provide certain services such as private sick notes, insurance claim forms, passport photo verification, medical examinations to establish insurance risks or fitness for activities, and some travel vaccinations.
These services usually involve provision of information, which is not necessary for your health care, to third parties such as employers, insurance companies, regulatory authorities etc.
Charges are made in line with BMA recommendations where allowed. Otherwise we charge a professional rate comparable to accountants, solicitors etc.
Private medical examinations are not performed during normal surgery hours and special appointments must be made through reception. An up-to-date price list is on display within the practice./meta>P>
