We would encourage patients to have your say. Please click here to learn more about the future of Rainbow Surgery.
We offer advice on all types of contraception Urgent appointments are always available for emergency contraception. The “morning after” pill can be taken up to 72 hours after unprotected intercourse, but is much more effective in the first 24 hours. We can refer you to other teams who can fit coils, implants or carry out vasectomies.
Invitations will be sent to women due a smear. We leave it to you to make an appointment at any time when you are not on your period. The new liquid based cytology technique does not require mid-cycle timing. All smear results are sent by post as soon as they are available.
Our simple questionnaire will enable you to obtain useful advice and protection. Please complete this and arrange a nurse appointment 6 weeks before travelling. Please refer to the travel vaccinations tab above.
Many conditions get better on their own and can be treated successfully at home. The pharmacist may be able to help you with these and advise about medicines you can buy over the counter. We also have a very useful booklet on minor illnesses which is available on request.
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 complete this form as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as an 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 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.
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)
EHIC card. This gives you some coverage for National Health services throughout Europe, but is not as comprehensive as personal travel insurance.
