Clinics & Services
These general health checks are offered to all men and women aged 25 to 65 years. The aim is to prevent heart attacks, strokes, cervical, breast and testicular cancer. Please telephone the surgery for an appointment with the Practice’s HCA.
Cervical Smear Screening
Women are recommended to have regular cervical smears every three years to check the neck of the womb is healthy and there are no signs of changes that could develop into cancer. This is usually carried out by the Practice Nurse but if you prefer a Doctor can take your smear during surgery hours.
All those patients over 75 years of age, who have not seen a Doctor in the past year, are invited for a general check up by the Practice’s HCA.
If you are a diabetic you will be invited to an annual appointment with the HCA and doctor. Approximately a week before your appointment you will be asked to have a blood test either at the surgery or if you prefer at Solihull or Heartlands hospital. You will also be requested to bring a urine sample to the appointment.
Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) Care
The practice nurses see CHD patients by appointment.
Every Friday morning 09:00 – 12:30 by appointment only.
Full family planning advice and services are available with a doctor or nurse during normal consulting times.
Every Wednesday afternoon by appointment with the midwife. Doctors are happy to provide antenatal care and postnatal care. If you think you may be pregnant, please arrange to see a doctor as soon as possible to confirm this and have a check-up. Arrangements will be made for you to see the midwife.

The Practice holds flu clinics in September/October each year and these are advertised at the surgery and on the website. For any other routine injections please contact reception for an appointment with the Practice Nurse.
We hold a walk-in child immunisation clinic every Tuesday between 10.45 am and 12.00 noon.
