Our practice nurses have surgeries by appointment and are present at clinics. They are available for advice or special procedures. If you would like to be seen please book at reception or by telephone.
They are generally available at Ludgershall & Tidworth 09:00 – 17:00, Monday - Friday.
Amongst other work they help with:
Transport for Hospital Appointments
Hospital Transport is only arranged through the doctors in the case of medical need. Please make a request for transport to your surgery reception. Two working days notice are needed for transport to be booked.
Contraception and Sexual Health
A full range of contraceptive services is provided by the doctors during surgery hours or in the well woman clinic. IUCD (coil) fitting and contraceptive implant fitting is by prior arrangement after discussion with a doctor. For more information on No Worries and Sexual Health clinics, choose Sexual Health & No Worries from the menu on the right.
Cervical Smear Tests
We generally suggest that cervical smears are done every three years between 25-50 years of age and every five years from 50-65. If you feel your appointment is overdue, please check with the practice. The test can be done either in surgery or with a nurse by appointment.
"Smoke Stop" Clinic
This is a weekly support clinic for those that actively wish to stop smoking. A walk-in clinic is at Ludgershall surgery on Wednesday from 17:00-18:00 and bookable appointments are also available at Tidworth (please ring the surgery to arrange a suitable time).
Shingles Vaccination eligibility
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.
The Castle Practice is a registered Yellow Fever Centre.
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 - at least 6 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 as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second 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 the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
