  • Get a medical certificate from your GP or hospital doctor (this is necessary to register the death)
  • Register the death within 5 days (8 days in Scotland). You will then receive the necessary documents for the funeral.

Vaccinations

This guide can help you understand the vaccines offered in the UK and when to have them. It also explains how they work and why they're safe and important. 

Travel Vaccinations

If you are travelling abroad please make sure you contact us in plenty of time to arrange any vaccinations that may be necessary. To help the Travel Nurses assess your travel needs it is important that they are in receipt of the assessment form before your appointment. Please be aware that we require at least 6 weeks notice before you travel to allow time for your vaccinations.

Weight Management Services

If you're overweight, losing weight has many health benefits. It might help reduce the risk of developing health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Making small, simple changes to what and how much you are eating and drinking can really help you lose the pounds.

Opioid Reduction Clinics

At The Green House Surgery we take patient safety very seriously. We follow the latest advances in medical research and continually update and review our clinical practice to ensure patient care is of the highest standard.

Recent research has highlighted a significant risk to patient safety around the use of opioid type painkillers for chronic pain. We know that these drugs are helpful in pain of recent onset such as a broken bone and they are also effective in patients with cancer related pain.

However, recent medical evidence questions the benefit of opioid type painkillers for chronic (lasting more than a few months) pains. There is now better understanding of the risks, including:

- reduced fertility/sex drive/erectile dysfunction in men or irregular periods in women

- reduced ability to fight infection

- increased levels of pain

- dependence

- breathing issues (respiratory depression)

Therefore, we are starting to review those who are on long-term pain killers (including opiates) and we would like to support you to reduce the amount you take. It is important these medicines are not stopped suddenly which can cause withdrawal side effects so we will support you to reduce slowly over time.

If this is a service you are interested in accessing, please contact the practice and ask to be booked into our opioid reduction clinic.

Social Prescribing Service

Your doctor isn’t the only person who can help you feel better. You can improve your health and wellbeing through social prescription.
