We provide a wide range of general medical services under the GMS Contract which came into effect on 1st April 2004. These include Essential Services, as defined by the GMS Contract, and Additional Services and Enhanced Services which the Practice has opted to provide.
Services which we will provide include:
Services which we DO NOT provide include:
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 8 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
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the form before coming to see the nurse.

Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Warfarin (INR) monitoring is now done in-house at Jedburgh Medical Practice, following the purchase of a “point of care” INR blood testing system. Our investment in new equipment and staff training is providing Warfarin patients with a quicker and more convenient service, while ensuring safe monitoring of Warfarin dosage.
How the New System Works for Warfarin Patients
Warfarin Patients Monitored at Home by District Nurses
As these patients cannot attend at the Health Centre, District Nurses will continue to take blood samples and send them the BGH Laboratory via courier. Results will be reviewed by Jedburgh Medical Practice clinical staff and conveyed by us to patients.
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.
Your lab test and radiology results can be obtained by telephoning reception after 4.30pm. Receptionists will ask you to identify yourself and will give results where this has been authorised by the doctor. Where you or your GP prefer to discuss your result, this can be done on the telephone or in surgery.
We have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and, unless you request otherwise, we will only release your test results to you.
If you would like us to report the results of tests to another person, please complete a Lab Results Mandate from reception. We will then be able to report your lab results to the person(s) whom you name on your mandate. You may revoke your mandate at any time.
Where a patient is not capable of understanding the results, the GP may give that result to the person or persons concerned with the care of that patient.
Many of our patients receive care from other health care professionals for acute or chronic medical problems, and test results may need to be accessed in order to ensure appropriate treatment.
Health care professionals in Jedburgh involved in your treatment or care have direct access to your computerised lab test results.
Health care professionals outside of Jedburgh Health Centre (e.g. NHS24, Borders Emergency Care Centre, and hospital doctors) do not currently have direct access to your computerised lab test results. NHS Scotland is developing information systems which will enable this in future when relevant to your care and treatment.
