The Care Quality Commission (CQC), which is an independent regulator of health and adult social care in England, has completed its inspection of the Cam & Uley Family Practice. These inspections are used to make sure that health services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care.
The Cam & Uley Family Practice report is now available on the http://www.cqc.org.uk/location/1-586168808
The following are available to our patients:
Appointments can be made to see a Nurse at either surgery without the need for a referral from a Doctor. As well as helping with clinical matters the nurse can advise you about your holiday health and make all the arrangements for your vaccinations. We have a Travel Advice Leaflet available for patients who intend to travel abroad. There is also a link to the NHS Online Travel Advice at the Advice & Self-Help section of this site.
The Doctors carry out Medical Examinations at the request of Insurance Companies and other organisations. These appointments are avaliable on Tuesday mornings for Uley patients and Monday evenings for Cam patients. These usually incur a charge. For a list of fees, please see: Fees for Non NHS Services.
The District Nursing team is now based at the Old Magistrates Court, Dursley and can be contacted on the above number.
Our midwife holds antenatal clinics at The Cam Surgery on Wednesday mornings and at Uley surgery on Friday mornings. She is based at Stroud Maternity Hospital 01453 562140.

Travel Health Questionnaire
To enable us to maintain an efficient holiday vaccination service, please complete the appropriate form below and return it to the practice. You should allow 2 weeks for the form to be processed and a further 6 weeks for appointments with the nurse.
Travel Risk Assessment Form - Europe - April 2016
Travel Risk Assessment Form - Worldwide - April 2016
On dropping the appropriate form off at the practice, the nurse will require 1 week to go through your form and recommend the necessary vaccinations. You can then collect the form and make your first appointment.
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.
If you are travelling in less than 8 weeks, you should contact a travel clinic for your travel vaccinations and advice.

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)
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
