You may be eligible for the Shingles vaccine. Use this link to help you find out. If so, please make an appointment with one of our nurses. If you require PNEUMONIA and SHINGLES vaccines, it is worth noting that they cannot be given at the same time. Appointments will need to be made 4 weeks apart.

Guide to GP Services
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
We are unable to give any information regarding a patient to a third party without prior verbal or written consent from the patient concerned in respect of the patient requesting that information. This consent will then be entered onto the patient's medical record for future reference. We take patient confidentiality in this practice very seriously, and will not impart any patient information without the patient's verbal or written consent.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
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 - 6-8 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 by the surgery. Your second appointment needs to be at least one month before you travel to allow the vaccines to give appropriate protection to the patient.
The following vaccines are available free on the NHS for travel purposes:Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Polio, Tetanus, Diptheria and Hep A/B combined. Hep B is normally chargeable to patients unless it is required for occupational health grounds, but we have decided not to charge our patients for this vaccine.
However, Malaria Prescription are not available on the NHS for travel purposes;
RABIES vaccine has a worldwide shortage currently and is not available within the GP surgery, all patients requiring these trio of vaccines will have to source this privately.
therefore a charge will be made to the surgery as below:
Course of 3 vaccines
non-chargeable to our patients
There is a prescription charge (£20), and a charge for the
medication to the pharmacy direct
£20.00 plus cost of medication
to the pharmacy direct
Unavailable in surgery,
must be sourced privately
Payment can be made either by cash, cheque or debit card (we do not accept credit cards) and will be required on commencement of the vaccine course. Please make cheques payable to Chelsfield Surgery.
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form and book a telephone triage appointment with the nurse after completion of the form is given to the surgery reception.
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)
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges, for example:
Our secretaries cannot produce 'to whom it may concern' letters for leisure or vocational trips in respect of patient's current health or medication. A printout from the patient's records will be issued at no charge.
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales:
Private Insurance Claim Form
Medicals (dependent on form)
All Private Prescriptions
Private Administration Letters
More detailed reports/letters will be charged at a higher rate
Unfortunately our GPs are no longer able to sign passport forms for patients, or do 'FIT TO PARTICIPATE' letters.
We now have a card machine in the surgery for payment of these chargeable services by your debit card. Please ask reception if you wish to use this facility.
When Dr Sharif was in practice we were a community teaching practice for King's College London School of Medicine and believe it offers benefits to both the practice and patients. For us as a practice it is enjoyable to share our enthusiasm for general practice with keen young doctors. Medicine is a constantly evolving subject and answering the questions of our students keeps us on our toes and helps us to question the way we do things. We also learn from our students.
For our patients, being a teaching practice means that you can be sure that the practice has been rigorously assessed to be a good teaching environment - in short that we are worth learning from. Our students watch and question us every step of the way and we are annually inspected to ensure that the medicine we practice is of the highest standard.
With the supervision of your doctor, medical students may, with your consent in advance, join your consultation. This is one way medical students learn to become good doctors and understand patient views about their care. We appreciate your help with their learning. If, for whatever reason, you feel that you would prefer to see the doctor on your own, please do not hesitate to say so. It really is entirely your choice and will not affect your consultation or relationship with the practice in any way. We are simply grateful when you feel that you can help with the job of teaching the next generation of doctors.
Kings College London has been a great supporter of our work. Each year they ask their medical students to commend community teachers that they have experienced as going above and beyond normal expectations and to say a little about what it was that had impressed them.
Dr Sharif guided and taught many of the future GPs of the NHS. We are indebted to him for his patience and knowledge.
Chelsfield Surgery has received the following commendations:
"Your doctor is an absolutely inspirational teacher. During my time learning with him he covered the whole syllabus and more. He addressed any initial concerns in a compassionate manner and as I grew in confidence he matched this by challenging me further, always setting tasks that felt just slightly out of my comfort zone, but through his support I achieved all of them. Each session was set in a supportive style and no question was ever made insignificant. He is incredibly knowledgeable and I feel like I could not have asked for a better experience and introduction to the clinical setting".

"So, well done, and many thanks for contributing so excellently to our King's College London Undergraduate Medical Programme".
Dr Anne Stephenson, Director of Community Education, King's College London, August 2013
Dr Prema Ravi is responsible for training and mentoring the GP Registrars we have at Chelsfield Surgery. Each registrar is with us for a number of months or up to 1 year, seeing patients in general practice surgeries.
