The Leybourne Surgery has a policy of encouraging a healthy lifestyle, i.e. non-smoking, moderate alcohol consumption, healthy diet and regular exercise.
We run Well-Man, Well-Woman, Cardiac, Asthma/COPD and Diabetic Clinics. We will make available to you information about:
You are responsible for your continuing good health and that of your children.
If you are given professional advice and help, please ACT ON IT.
We do not have an on site health visitor and all Child Health Clinics are held at various sites around Bournemouth. Please see notices in surgery.
Blood tests clinics are held every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings at the surgery.
Our Practice Nurse see's Asthma patients of all age groups.
These services have been removed from the Practice & all GP surgeries by the Bournemouth Primary Care Trust, as of 1 April 2006.
Physiotherapy will be relocated to either East Way Clinic, Southbourne Surgery, RBH Physio unit or the Christchurch Hospital Physio unit.
Chiropody will move to either East Way or Pelham's clinics.
These services are now arranged after referral to a Management Centre and then organised from there.
If you have any questions or concerns or if you wish to make, change or cancel an appointment; please telephone: 01202 705100
Please see separate page under the tab ‘Fees
If you are travelling abroad, you may need immunisations and malaria tablets. Please fill out a travel questionnaire either online (see below) or collect a form to complete from reception for each person travelling, specifying dates of travel, countries to be visited etc.
Please remember that travel health is YOUR responsibility.
We require a minimum of 6 weeks notice in order to provide a full service and complete courses of some vaccinations
Please check current travel advice on the NHS Fit for travel website.
We are currently experiencing a shortage of nurse appointments and if you are travelling at short notice, we may not be able to provide an appointment. In this case please contact a private clinic: these include Boots at Castlepoint (01202 548139) or Southampton Travel Health Clinic (02380 631922)
We no longer offer the Yellow Fever vaccination. A number of other clinics locally still offer this service, please speak to us if you would like details. Not all travel immunisations are available on the NHS and those that are not will incur a charge. Malaria tablets are not available on the NHS and these will incur both a private prescription charge from the practice and a further charge from the chemist for the tablets.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.

Each Autumn the Surgery runs flu clinics to enable patients to receive their annual flu jab. Further details are placed on the website or ask at Reception.
These are for patients who are either over 65 or in an 'at risk' group.
There is much more information about the jab itself and those groups of patients for whom it is recommended on the following website :-http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/vaccinations/Pages/flu-influenza-vaccine.aspx
