Six-monthly Medical Review
For patients with Coronary Heart Disease, Diabetes and Hypertension
Your medication is under constant review and these reviews are important to ensure you are receiving the correct treatment for your condition.
Your repeat prescription sheet will inform you when your next medication review is due.
The review can often be done by telephone with your GP but may also involve attending the surgery for tests, prior to your appointment. A member of the reception team can help you if you have any queries.
Regular review of patients' chronic medical conditions is advised from the outset and during any acute deterioration. Once stable, the regular review is less frequent as explained below.
These reviews are essential to ensure we provide you with the correct on-going treatment and therefore may contact you to arrange an appointment when necessary.
If your symptoms are deteriorating or you have any concerns, please make an appointment to the respiratory nurse or a doctor as well.
Important: Please bring your inhaler to your Asthma Review.

Influenza – flu – is a highly infectious and potentially serious illness caused by influenza viruses. Each year the make-up of the seasonal flu vaccine is designed to protect against the influenza viruses that the World Health Organization decide are most likely to be circulating in the coming winter.
Regular immunisation (vaccination) is given free of charge to the following at-risk people, to protect them from seasonal flu:
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 be a telephone call with the nurse and 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 telephone 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. Please see the 'Non-NHS Charges' section for details of our fees.
There is currently a national shortage of yellow fever, Hepatitis B and Typhoid vaccines and the manufacturers prefer to supply private travel clinics rather than GP Surgeries. Therefore we may not be able to fulfill your vaccine requirements before you travel and in the case of yellow fever vaccination and certification this may result in you not being able to travel to your chosen destination.
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse. Please allow at least 5 working days if you use this facility.
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)

Cognitive Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic tool using the best from a number of schools of thought to provide a bespoke, personalised service to those who use it. It has it's basis in Hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), but also uses techniques from CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Positive Psychology, amongst other approaches. It is, a blend of the best of many types of therapies, used to support the changes you want to make. There is no 'one size fits all'. We are all different and we engage with our issues in an individual way. To give you a simple example. If I ask you to look at a colour and tell me what you see - you may say blue. I may agree that it is blue, but I cannot know that the blue you see and the blue I see are the same. It is often the same with emotions. I might say I am angry, you may be too - but it doesn't necessarily mean it is the same for both of us. Therefore, when you book an appointment with me, the first thing we will do is to help us both to understand what is going on for you. That way, we can better help you to unpick the problem and re-wire it as a solution.
Problems such as: Anxiety, Compulsive Obsessive Behaviour, OCD,Pain Control, IBS, Chronic Fatigue, Stop Smoking, Fear of flying, Fear of Dentists, Phobias, Fear of Spiders and Creepy Crawlies, Nervousness, Exam Nerves, Public Speaking, Special Occasion Nerves, Panic ttacks,Childbirth, Fibromyalgia, ME - Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Shyness, Blushing, Mindfulness and many more.

Homeopathy: As a Classical Homeopath I follow the original principles and philosophy created by the founder of Homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann. I have also completed thorough training in an advanced system of Homeopathy called the Sensation Method. I am a fully registered and insured member of the Society of Homeopaths which has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Nutritional Therapy: As more and more people are finding certain foods may be linked to their symptoms (e.g. gluten, dairy, refined sugar), there is a growing demand for advice and support about dietary changes and nutritional requirements to help specific health conditions, food sensitivities and intolerances. Having completed additional training in Nutritional Therapy, I am qualified to assess and guide patients on their diet, hydration & lifestyle. I incorporate nutritional advice within my existing consultations.
Nutritional Deficiencies & Food Sensitivity Testing: I have also completed the TASK (The Association of Systematic Kinesiologists) approved Foundation Course in Kinesiology. This enables me to incorporate Systematic Kinesiology within my practice to identify nutritional requirements your body requires, and which foods are negatively impacting the body (e.g. food sensitivity testing).
Homeopathy Consultations (including nutritional advice and food sensitivity testing) are available in Odiham Health Centre every Friday.

People seek counselling for different reasons. Difficulties from the past, painful experiences in the present or fears about the future can all hinder our ability to feel part of and enjoy life and find satisfaction. If life is difficult at the moment and you would like to talk things through with someone who won't judge you, make assumptions or offer opinions, someone who is prepared to come alongside you and help you find a way through and out of your difficulties, then counselling may be for you.
In counselling you will be supported in expressing your emotions in your own way and finding your own solutions to your problems. The process of sorting out and untangling feelings and worries can enable you to see things with more clarity and empower you to make changes. Counselling can also help you come to terms with and accept what cannot be changed. But you don't have to have extensive problems to have counselling. You may just want to explore where you are at in your life, increase your self awareness and engage in personal growth.I am an integrative Counsellor, which means I draw on a number of different counselling theories/approaches. This makes it easier to be flexible and work in a way that suits the individual. In counselling we will work together to find the right track for you. At the very centre of the service I offer is a therapeutic relationship, which is based on respect, trust, confidentiality, equality and honesty. I offer both short term and open ended therapy. If any of what you have read here about counselling has captured your attention, I would be delighted to meet with you for an initial no obligation session. This would give you a chance to decide whether counselling is the right thing for you and whether you feel comfortable with me.
50 minute appointments are £45.00
