Asthma & COPD Clinic We offer appointments with our asthma specialist nurses for monitoring symptom control and medication together with support and advice on management according to individual needs. All asthma patients are advised to see the practice nurse for an annual review.
Blood If your doctor or nurse has requested you have a blood test we run a clinic every morning. We offer the first appointments to those patients who are having fasting bloods. Fasting bloods mean you cannot eat or drink, except plenty of water, for 12 hours before your blood test. If you do, then this could produce an inaccurate result necessitating a retest. All blood samples are taken in the morning so they can be collected at 13:00. and taken to the laboratory at East Surrey Hospital - this is also the case for urine, stool and sputum samples.
Counselling & CBTA counselling service is available at Brockwood Medical Practice, provided by DHC and funded by the NHS. Access is by referral from your doctor. The service provides for up to six sessions (each 50 minutes) of individual counselling for adults, not couple, child or family work. Referrals may be made for a variety of issues, including relationship problems, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress at work, loss of confidence, bereavement, family break-up, trauma, adjustment to physical ill-health, pressures of caring. Please speak to your doctor or practice nurse if you wish to be referred.
Once the referral for counselling has been received, you will be sent an opt-in letter explaining the times it is available, and how the initial appointment will be set up. Appointments are available at specific times, within normal surgery hours, Monday to Friday, at North Holmwood and Brockham Surgeries.
There will be some conditions for which CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) may be the recommended treatment, for example anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder or moderate to severe depression. In these cases you may be referred directly to a specialist CBT service provider, self-help resources may be suggested, or a CBT approach may be incorporated within counselling.
There are four qualified counsellors working at Brockwood: Fiona Spencer (Counselling Service Coordinator), Vicky Cruz, Monika Mizzi and Kim Oakley. There may in addition be therapists in training attached to the service.

Extended Hours/Access Clinics
Now it is even easier for people to make an appointment with a GP, thanks to a new national ‘extended access’ initiative, which means hundreds of extra appointments every week for people living in the local area. As well as being able to visit your practice, now you can also book into evening and weekend consultations at new hub clinics, where extra appointments are available at a number of locations locally.
The extra appointments are being provided by local GP federations, which are made up of local GP practices, so you will be seen by a local GP.
Thanks to GP practices working together in a new and different way, this new service means it will be even easier to get the care and advice you need, at a time that’s convenient to you. As these appointments are provided by local GPs, with your consent, the GP will even be able to access your medical record, giving them access to all the information they need to provide the best possible care, even if your appointment is at a different location.
By having more appointments available, it will be even easier for people to get advice from a GP, when they need it. The initiative will also ensure more people are seen and treated in the community, closer to home.
You can book into this new service by contacting your practice in the usual way.
Smoking cessation advice is provided by one you surrey. www.oneyousurrey.org.uk. Tel 01737 652168.
We can advise you on travel health and what vaccinations you require relating to foreign travel.
If you would like travel advice contact the surgery and leave a telephone message for a nurse to phone you back. The nurse will discuss with you over the telephone where you are travelling to and what vaccinations are required. She will then book an apointment for you to attend the surgery to have the vaccintions.
There is a £10 charge for a travel certificate and for any travel vaccinations that are not available free on the NHS.
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 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. Some vaccines have to be ordered as they are not kept in stock. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. Click here for a list of our current travel clinic fees.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
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)
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability. Click here for a list of our current fees.
We have First Contact Physiotherapists working with us at Brockwood Medical Practice.
These clinicians will assess, diagnose and refer, they will not provide treatment. However, they can offer suggestions and guidance on how to manage a problem whilst waiting ongoing treatment and this often prevents patients' symptoms from getting worse and on occasion helps the patient get better themselves.
They are highly trained, skilled and experienced in their field and are a better option to the patient than seeing a GP; They have a huge amount of information and guidance to give to the patient.
Appointments can be made with the physios for anything related to musculoskeletal issues, for example, painful neck/whiplash, painful back/sciatica, painful knees, joint pain/stiffness, muscle aches, sprained ankles, tennis elbow, in general anything where the patient may describe pain, tingling, numbness, stiffness or weakness relating to a muscle, bone or joint.
