Ear Irrigation carries risks of perforating (making a hole in) the ear drum and infection, so this is not a treatment we undertake unnecessarily. In the majority of cases wax disappears using olive oil so before any appointment for irrigation is given we ask you to have applied olive oil twice a day for at least five days and then, if the symptoms still persist, to book an ear assessment appointment with the practice nurse and irrigation will only be carried out upon the recommendation of our practice nurse. Please download our patient advice leaflet for further information Ear Care - Advice for patients
Stockwell Road Surgery and a number of other local GP practices have partnered with MASTA (Medical Advisory Service for Travellers Abroad) to provide a specialist Travel Health service for our patients and patients in Harrogate, Knaresborough and the surrounding area.
The Travel Clinic is an accessible, expert service located on the ground floor of the Mowbray Square Medical Centre, Mowbray Square, Harrogate, HG1 5AR. Vaccines available free of charge on the NHS will remain free of charge*. Non NHS vaccines that were charged privately previously, will continue to be charged privately.
All patients seeking advice for new travel after 8 August 2016 will now be directed to this new service.
To book an appointment please:
- visit the MASTA website Click Here. You can use the vaccine checker on the website prior to your appointment to identify possible vaccination requirements for your trip.
- alternatively call MASTA on 0330 100 4156. This number is charged at local rate.
A full range of travel health vaccinations, anti-malarials and retail products are available at the clinic. As before please allow at least 6 weeks before travel when contacting the travel clinic. This is because many travel vaccinations require a course and it is important you have allowed sufficient time for the course to be completed. The Clinic is currently oversubscribed so arranging for vaccinations well in advance of the date of travel is particularly important. If the Harrogate clinic is oversubscribed, you will be directed to York or Leeds where unfortunately, the vaccines available on the NHS will be chargeable.
Clinic opening Times:
- Tuesdays 8.00am – 6.00pm
- Thursday 12.00pm – 8.00pm
- Saturday 8.00am – 4.00pm
* (where booked at least 48 hours in advance of the appointment date / for patients registered at participating practices)
Please note that this does not affect patients currently in the process of receiving travel advice/vaccinations at the surgery. Any treatment commenced here will be continued.
Some excellent travel advice is available on the following websites
