Asthma Clinic - patients with asthma should be seen every six months. Either a nurse or a doctor can give up to date advice by appointment during surgery and will ensure your inhaler technique is correct.
Diabetes Clinic - each patient should be seen by appointment at least every six months by the doctor, nurse and optician for advice on the control of diabetes. Most will be seen more often.
Minor Surgery - although the surgery is unable to provide this we do have a contract via Nottingham City CCG for services to be provided by another practice.
Care for the Seriously ill at Home - an excellent team of district nurses is based at the health centre.
Social Worker and Occupational Therapy - the surgery can put you in touch with these services. Ask the doctor or nurse.
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 - 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, please complete this before attending an appointment with the practice nurse

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. 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.
We promise to provide a welcoming and confidential service to all our patients. Anyone over the age of 13 can be seen by any of our doctors or nurses alone, or with a friend in the strictest of confidence. *
We will take all your concerns and issues seriously, whether you just feel the need to talk to a professional person, or have more specific medical needs, we will always be happy to see you.
If you would like to speak to a receptionist in confidence when you arrive at St Luke’s please just ask and we will be more than happy to accommodate your request.
When our young patients turn 13 we will send out birthday packages that include information on the surgery and the services that we provide, including the ones specifically aimed at our 13 to 25 year old patients.
Our range of services include:
St. Luke's is also a ’pick up point’ for the C Card scheme which provides free condoms for people aged 13 - 24 years old.
St. Luke's Surgery provides a confidential service to young people including those under 16 years old. You can choose to tell others about your visit but we wont. The only reason why we may consider passing on confidential information without your permission would be to protect you or someone else from serious harm. We would always try and discuss this with you first.
We would love to hear what you have to say about St.Luke's. Why don’t you leave us feedback or suggestions about our surgery?
There is a suggestion box next to our reception, leave feedback on this website, or better still why not come to one of our Patient Participation Meetings and help St. Luke's become ’Your Surgery’. (Please view our Patient Participation page from the left hand toolbar for more information)
