We offer all women between the ages of 25 and 65 the opportunity to have a cervical smear test every 3 to 5 years to help detect any cell changes in the cervix which could possibly develop into cancer. Test results are sent to you within 6 weeks.
To avoid having to attend hospital, we are pleased to be able to offer an in-house minor surgery service for procedures such as in-growing toenails, removal of lumps and bumps, joint injections, gynaecology procedures such as coil fittings, and endometrial biopsies.

Our District Nurses provide support and nursing to patients at home. This will be arranged through the doctor or sometimes by the hospital. They can be contacted through the surgery or directly on01453 540034.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse, after completing and returning a travel health questionnaire, 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. *Please note that Yellow Fever vaccinations are not available at the surgery.
Travel Health Questionnaire
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse, after completing and returning a travel questionnaire.
