Acle Health Centre provides a range of health services for over 9,000 residents in Acle and the surrounding area.
Details of your practice services can be found below:
Cervical cancer can be prevented. Routine screening is an effective way of detecting disease at an early stage, so that it is curable. We carry out a screening programme and we strongly encourage you to come for a cervical smear when you receive an invitation letter.
The District nurses are based at Brundall surgery and carry out various procedures in your own home, and act as an extension of our team at the health centre for those patients who are housebound.
The midwife based in the community works from the Medical Centre. Her role is to help expectant mothers with all aspects of their healthcare during and after their pregnancy. She holds antenatal clinics here which are via a booked appointment.
Many childhood illnesses (such as mumps, measles and rubella) are easily prevented through vaccinations. We have a full range of vaccinations available at this surgery, and we will be inviting you to bring your child along at appropriate stages in your child’s development.
You should make sure that your child completes the full course of immunisations to protect them from unnecessary illness.
The doctors, practice nurse or health visitor will happily answer any queries you may have about immunisation and vaccination.
We deal with requests for emergency contraception in strictest confidence, including requests from patients aged under 16. We will offer you a choice of contraceptive methods where possible but you can see the doctor or nurse on an emergency basis.
You can also go to the casualty department of the Norfolk and Norwich or James Paget Hospitals to be treated if you prefer. The sooner you get treatment, the better the chance of success.
Please do not store unwanted medicines and return them to the surgery for safe disposal.
For your convenience, a debit card machine is available for payment of prescriptions or other fees.
All our doctors provide contraceptive services and advice. Coils and implanon insertions appointments are available on Wednesdays.
The Health Visitor based at Brundall surgery, works mainly with families and focus on expectant mothers and children under five years old. Their role includes health promotion, health education, developmental clinics, pre-school immunisations, advice and support. The health visitors work in your home and in the health centre.
You can contact the health visitor on 01603 712255 between 9.00am and 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.
We hold travel vaccination clinics by appointment. Prior to your appointment you will be requested to contact the Travel Helpline on 0906 8224100 to enable completion of a practice pre-travel assessment form.
You can buy anti-malarial medication at dispensary, or we will provide a private prescription.
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. Please telephone the surgery to book an appointment in the Travel Clinic, you can complete the Travel questionnaire below for the nurse to view prior to your appointment.
