Alcohol Intervention Service
The Alcohol Interventions Team (AIT) offers support, information, advice and signposting to individuals who drink above 'safe' levels of alcohol for whatever reason.
Verity is the Alcohol Interventions Practitioner covering the Drayton Surgery. If you feel you would benefit from support to make changes to your alcohol use, please either discuss a referral to the AIT with your GP, or call 02392 841753 to make a self referral. An appointment can be arranged at the Drayton Surgery or at a more convenient location for you.
If suggested by the doctor, the results of certain tests may be obtained by telephoning, or calling in person, after 2pm on weekdays.
Please call on (023) 92 370422. The doctor will leave a message if he needs to see you to discuss the result.
We provide a confidential service to all our patients, including under 16s.
You can request to see a Doctor on your own (or with a friend) as long as you are capable of understanding the treatment the Doctor feels is necessary.
This means that while you can tell others about this visit, we won’t.
We are here to listen, not to tell .
The only reason why we might have to consider passing on confidential information, without your permission, would be to protect you or someone else from very serious harm. We would always try to discuss this with you first.
Often an appointment to see the doctor is not absolutely necessary. Our nurses are highly trained and are more than capable of performing routine checks for blood pressure, HRT, pill repeats etc in their clinics. If the nurse cannot deal with your particular probelm she can access the Triage Doctor if she feels it is appropriate.
Many minor illnesses can easily be dealt with at home if advice is sought from the local pharmacist.
Overseas visitors who require "emergency medical treatment" are entitled to free medical care whether or not they are resident in this country. However, we are not required to provide non-emergency /routine / ongoing treatment for these visitors and, if accepted, a fee will be charged if appropriate.
Portsmouth GPs at the heart of the government’s health reforms are putting themselves in the firing line for an ‘Any Questions’ style event.
They are to set aside part of their governing body meeting this month to answer questions on any health-related issue in the city.
The meeting is being held at St James’ Hospital in Locksway Road from 2pm-4.30pm on Wednesday 20 February and the Q&A session will be held towards the end of the meeting at around 4pm.
Questions must be submitted in writing or email received by 4pm on Friday 15 February.
Dr Tim Wilkinson, who chairs the CCG governing board, said: “We will answer any health-related question that people want to ask us, but can’t answer questions about any individual’s health.
“For example, questions may be about our priorities, the NHS in general or local GP, community or hospital services.
“We are asking people to let us have their questions by 15 February so that we can plan the event, theme or group related questions and research those answers where data may be needed.”
Other items on the agenda will include financial and performance reports, the CCG’s response to a petition by the campaign group 38 Degrees* and a special presentation on the CCG’s plans for joined up care - where health and social care services work together.
You can email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org Please title your email Question for the Governing Board.
Or you can write to Jayne Collis, Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group, St James’ Hospital, Locksway Road, Portsmouth, PO4 8LD.
The CCG has been authorised as a statutory organisation to replace NHS Portsmouth, the city’s primary care trust, as the main commissioner of local healthcare services.
*Note to reporters: 38 Degrees is a UK campaigning community, which has asked the CCG to protect local NHS services and stop them being broken up or taken over by “irresponsible private companies.”

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
