Minor Surgery Clinic
Dr Das offers a minor surgery clinic on Thursday mornings at Clipstone. Clinics are also available at Farnsfield.

Dr Das offers joint injection clinics at various times and other GPs are able to give joint injections.
Minor injuries such as sprains, bumps and minor cuts can be seen at the practice. Please call and ask for an urgent appointment.
We provide advice on all aspects of birth control during surgery consultations. Please make an appointment to see a nurse for contraception advice.
Some of our GPs fit and remove coils and Implanons. Please make an appointment with one of these GPs to discuss these options.
Chronic Disease Management
This includes diabetes, asthma, COPD, heart disease and stroke. Patients will be invited for an annual review by the Practice Nurse but can make an appointment with the Practice Nurse between these times if they have any concerns about their condition.
If you’re aged 40-74 and have not been diagnosed with heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease or certain types of dementia, you are entitled to a free NHS health check. We also offer well woman and well man health checks with our Healthcare Assistants. Please ask at reception or call to book a health check.
Every autumn we have flu vaccine clinics. These are mainly for the elderly (over 65), immuno-compromised diabetics, those with chest problems (eg asthma and bronchitis), heart problems (eg angina), kidney problems and pregnant ladies.
There is also a vaccine called Pneumovax II available at any time against bacterial chest infections and pneumonia recommended for the same people.
Eight week checks are performed by GPs. Baby vaccinations are also given at this time or alternative times are available if required. Click here for more information about the current vaccination schedule
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. 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.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.
Unfortunately, we can no longer offer a travel assessment appointment if the appointment isn't made at least 8 weeks before travel.
In these circumstances, you may need to go to one of the private clinics, a few of which are listed below.Boots at Four seasons shopping centre Mansfield offer free travel health clinic advice including prescribing medication and vaccine but this will cost.You can book appt online through the boots website.The other providers are the Park Hospital 01158967878 and Regent street clinic in Nottingham, 0115 947 5498
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.
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form and return to reception to be booked in at least 8 weeks before travel.
Or alternatively, pick up a travel assessment form from the surgery and ensure it is filled in and returned before your appointment.
The NHS does not cover for some services under its contract and therefore attract charges. Some of these services are:
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.

Sherwood Medical Partnership is working in collaboration with the Clinical Research Network: East Midlands (CRN:EM). The CRN:EM is part of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and is focused on enhancing and promoting research, ensuring that it is conducted in line with ethical procedures and for patient benefit. There is a local team working within Nottingham City and Nottingham County, facilitating research within primary care.
Sherwood Medical Partnership is signed up to a Research Site Initiative Scheme; resulting in them choosing to be involved in appropriate and relevant research studies, focused on enhancing patient care and working on studies that are of particular interest and need for their patient population. The primary care team surpassed recruitment expectations in the financial year of 2014-2015 and this could not have been done without the support of local practices and the engagement from patients in these areas.

Anyone aged 18 years or over can sign up themselves, or on behalf of someone else, either by registering online or by contacting the helplines of Alzheimer’s Research UK (0300 111 5 111) and Alzheimer’s Society (0300 222 1122).

Fit for Work referrals now available for all GPs in England and Wales
As of 22 July 2015, all GPs across England and Wales can refer their employed patients for a free and independent occupational health assessment if they have been, or are likely to be, off work for four weeks or more due to illness.
Referral to Fit for Work is voluntary, and is suitable for any employed person who has a realistic prospect of returning to work and for whom returning to work will not adversely affect their health. The assessment culminates in a personalised Return to Work Plan providing a schedule for a person’s return to work along with signposting to helpful services based around their needs.
GPs will continue to make decisions on day-to-day health care matters. When a GP makes a referral, Fit for Work will not have access to GPs’ notes, but only to any existing fit notes and any further information considered by GPs to be relevant to the absence or current treatment. Employers remain responsible for decisions on managing absence and paying statutory sick pay, and will now have access to better independent information when doing so. By autumn 2015, employers will be able to refer their eligible employees to Fit for Work themselves without the need to go via GPs.
To find out more, visit the Fit for Work website where you can sign up for updates.
