If you fall pregnant you should see one of the doctors at the earliest opportunity so that we can book you at the antenatal clinic. This is held at EHMC on a Friday. As soon as you find you are pregnant you should immediately start taking a folic acid supplement (400 micrograms daily ) to help prevent spina bifida. These can be obtained with or without vitamins from you chemist.
Counsellors can be accessed via the "Improving Access to Psychological Therapies" service. You can self-refer by clicking here or you can come and see the doctor to arrange this and there is a questionnaire that needs to be completed before you can access the service. It would be helpful if you could complete this before seeing us and the questionnaire can be downloaded here. Please bring it with you when you see the doctor.
Appointments are made by the doctor or nurse for people who have medical needs for a dieticians help. Such conditions include diabetes and high cholesterol. We are not able to offer a “weight watchers” type service.
If you are asked to have a blood test by our doctors or nurses these can be arranged by asking for an appointment with our phlebotomist.
Harrow CCG is in contract with HHL to provide physiotherapy services. They in turn use a number of providers one of which is Anatomie. The practice provides a room for them to offer such services in the community. Any patient from any practice in Harrow who is eligible for physiotherapy can be seen by Anatomie at EHMC. Appointments are made with HHL who ask patients where they would like to be seen, our own patients do not get preferential treatment in this process and patients cannot self refer. You have to be referred by a doctor.
We do not offer a separate clinic for family planning but would be happy to advise on all aspects including the coil . If you are on the pill we must see you to check your blood pressure every 6 months. If you run out and are not able to see us immediately we will allow you one months additional supply after that you must find the time to come in. You may see the nurse for this.
If you are at risk of pregnancy, perhaps a condom split or came off , you missed the pill or you were not using contraception at all ,then you need emergency contraception. Emergency contraception can be obtained in several ways and there are two types of emergency contraception.
The first type is a form of the pill and is effective if taken up to 72 hours after unprotected intercourse. The second type is to insert an intrauterine device (coil) and this is effective for up to 5 days after unprotected sex. The pill can be obtained from
Its worth remembering that emergency contraception can fail and it does not stop pregnancies outside of the womb known as ectopic pregnancy. It is therefore vital that if you miss a period you must come back.
Emergency contraception is no substitute for regular family planning and you should discuss this with us as well.
We recommend all women between the ages of 24 and 65 to have cervical smears . We try to do them at mid-cycle if possible. Invitations for smears come from both the practice and the local health authority. We feel that this dual approach helps prevent people being overlooked ! The smears themselves are done by our nurse ,please ring for an appointment. Smear tests are always done in the surgery
Prior to having a smear we request that you read an information leaflet about them. You will also be asked to sign a consent form to have a smear.
Smear results take about 3 weeks to come back and if there is a problem we will write to you . Again the health authority may also write to you and again we hope this duplication of effort will help reduce any possible errors. The health authority will also tell you when the smear is normal. If the smear is normal we do not normally write to you. There are many reasons why a smear result may be abnormal. Do not jump to conclusions !
If you do not wish to have a cervical smear for medical legal reasons we will ask you to come in and see the doctor and nurse and sign a form to say you don’t want a smear. Even if you don’t want a smear we are obliged to continue you to invite you for a smear.
In order to balance the demand in appointments, we are streamlining the way we manage our travel appointments.
Patients who are travelling will need to obtain their immunisation history (this is available online for those with online Patient Access) or can be requested via the reception desk. This information can be used in conjunction with the travel health information website to determine if vaccinations and an appointment is needed:
There is no longer a need to hand in the travel questionnaire in advance of booking an appointment, this form can be filled in and brought to your appointment on the day.
We have limited appointments in the system for travel vaccinations and you are advised to book well in advance of travelling (6 weeks or more) in order to ensure vaccinations are effective for the time of travelling.
If there are no appointments available for travel vaccinations in the time frame you require, you have the option to book an appointment with a local private travel clinic. Please refer to the document below for information on private travel clinics.
Thank you for your co-operation.
