Non-NHS (Private) Examinations and Reports
The doctors are happy to carry out medical examinations and complete reports for such things as insurance, sports medicals, and certain types of driving licence. Please telephone the health centre for an appointment.
The NHS does not cover this type of examination or report and a charge will be made. A charge is also made for signing various forms such as fitness to travel certificates. Payment must be made at the time of attendance, or upon collection of the completed documents. Please ask at reception for the details of these charges.
Lorna Dixon and Judith Tardif run the osteopathic clinic at the Broadshires. Both are registered with the General Osteopathic Council. The clinic is run on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays (appointments are sometimes available at short notice). This is not an NHS service and an initial consultation and treatment costs £40.00. Subsequent visits are charged at £35.00. Your treatment may be covered by private health insurance.
The clinic is open to patients who are not registered at the practice as well as patients who are. There is no need for a doctor's referral prior to treatment, but you may wish to ask your doctor's advice before booking an appointment. Osteopathy is not just for back pain. Osteopaths can treat a wide range of musculo-skeletal conditions including neck pain, repetitive strain injury and minor sports injuries.
Lorna and Judith are happy to answer any questions you may have prior to booking. Please call them on 01993 867134 or go their website http://www.broadshiresbacks.co.uk/
