As you are all aware Dr Hopgood left the practice at the end of March, and we are delighted to inform you that our new doctor Kash Mahmood will be starting Monday 9th July he will be working on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We wish him well in his new post here at the surgery.
You can order your repeat prescriptions, book some doctors appointments, view historic/future appointments and cancel all appointments online. In order to do this you need to obtain a username and password from the Surgery (Photo ID required).
We hold a number of clinics for both preventing disease and for reducing harm from existing conditions:
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need complete the travel questionnaire below and then 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.
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 the travel questionnaire throughly (it is very important to state whether you are staying in a hotel or backpacking etc) for each member of family travelling and bring it along to the Surgery to book an appointment with the nurse
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
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:
Dr Acorn performs private medical examinations on Thursday mornings from 11:30. 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.
Book your No Scalpel Vasectomy (NSV) at Stock Surgery where you will experience the clean, safe, high-tech hospital environment of our operating facility, but with the friendly, comfortable ambience of a village GP surgery. We offer professional expertise with a friendly holistic approach, ensuring that our vasectomy patients will feel confident and at ease to have a really good experience.
Here at Stock surgery we have a highly specified operating theatre. It is the perfect environment for all forms of operation where local anaesthetic is used, including no scalpel vasectomy. We have provided community surgical services with expert advice and support since 2008 and Dr Acorn has performed thousands of vasectomies during that time.
We are located near to Chelmsford, Billericay and Brentwood.
The non-scalpel procedure is the most up to date technique for best possible outcomes. It is the procedure of choice because it has been shown to have a lower failure rate AND a lower incidence of operative complications when compared to more traditional methods. NSV is the procedure you will have when you have your vasectomy with Dr Acorn at Stock Surgery.
NSV differs from traditional vasectomy in the following ways.
You will not feel any discomfort during your vasectomy as we use a micro-fine 31 gauge to instil the rapid-acting local anaesthetic. And you can feel completely at ease welcomed by our friendly, professional staff and in the hands of a highly qualified vasectomy surgeon (Dr Acorn) with many years experience. There are excellent road links via M25 and A12 from surrounding areas and we have a large free carpark.
If you think vasectomy is the contraceptive for you, make sure you get a no scalpel vasectomy. Unfortunately vasectomy procedures are now no longer available as an NHS treatment in Mid-Essex, but we are able to offer patient funded NSV at an affordable price here at Stock Surgery. The total cost including semen analysis is £275; you will not find a better service nor better value!
Please make sure you read and comprehend the No Scalpel Vasectomy information sheet thoroughly, before you make a decision – vasectomy is a permanent contraceptive. Please click on the following links to download further information about the operation. They are all in PDF format:
