There are a number of services that the doctors offer which fall outside of the NHS contract and for these a charge will be made. Details of charges are available here Private Fees. These include private medical claim forms e.g. BUPA/PPP, private medical certificates and various special examinations and reports for school, employment, driving etc. Please note that the doctors charge for these services as they are not part of their NHS work. These fees are payable in advance of any work being done by the GPs.
Please call between 11am and 1pm to enquire about your test results , as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request between these times.
Please note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so. The surgery will not contact you with the result unless the doctor feels it is a matter of urgency.
The Practice Nurses play an important role in the management of your care. The following are some of their many skilled duties:
Our team of District Nurses provide home nursing services especially for the housebound, elderly, chronically sick and those recently in hospital. Messages for the District Nurse can be passed on via the receptionist.
The Community Health Visitors work with us, and they have a special interest in child development as well as the promotion of health in all age groups.
Midwives from both Frimley Park Hospital and the Royal Surrey County Hospital are attached to the practice and, together with your doctor, provide antenatal and postnatal care.
Farnham Dene is an accredited teaching practice.
We have medical students from St George's University of London for short periods from August to March each year.
With the patient's consent students may sit in on consultations with the GP or nurse to learn about general practice.
Students are also occasionally asked, with the patient's consent, to carry out a consultation alone which is then discussed with the GP, student and patient.
Therefore you may be asked to consult with a 5th year medical student before you see your GP. If you agree to see a medical student first, you will be assisting with their training and your cooperation will be appreciated. However the choice is yours and you do not need to have a consultation with a medical student if you prefer not to.
We are also a training practice for Foundation Year doctors. FY2 doctors are in their second year post qualification and are required to spend 4 months in General Practice as a part of their post qualification experience.
We also train Specialist Trainee doctors (ST1, ST2 or ST3) also known as GP Registrars, in their first, second or final year of specialist GP training.
A GP Registrar is a fully qualified doctor who will have a lot of experience of hospital medicine and if you are seeing this doctor you can expect to receive the quality of service you would normally get from your own GP. If you have any concerns please mention this to a member of staff.
We hope that you will help with the doctor training by agreeing to consult with a FY2 or ST (GP Registrar) doctor if an appointment is offered to you.
