Clinics We Offer
The practice nurse runs these clinics by appointment only.
If you are a diabetic you will be invited to an annual appointment with the Nurse and doctor. Approximately a week before your appointment you will be asked to have a blood test at the surgery. 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 Tuesday morning by appointment with the midwife. Doctors are happy to provide antenatal care and postnatal care. If you think you may be pregnant, please let the Practice know as soon as possible and have a check-up. Arrangements will be made for you to see the midwife.
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.
Full family planning advice and services are available with a doctor or nurse during normal consulting times.
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 bookable child immunisation clinic every Wednesday between 11 am and 12.30 noon.
The doctors also carry out some joint injections to relieve pain.
These are available at the surgery at a doctors’ discretion.
