Clinics and Services

Amongst our many services we offer:

Antenatal

Full pregnancy care is available at the surgery. In nearly all cases the doctors and midwife will carry out the majority of your antenatal care in the practice with just two or three visits to the hospital clinic.

Asthma

Asthmatic patients are encouraged to attend this clinic at least annually to monitor their condition and to ensure compliance and understanding of their medication.

Regular checks on development and immunisations for under-fives are carried out by the doctor, Health Visitor and practice nurse. It is very important that your children are vaccinated against childhood diseases.

Cervical Smears

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.

Minor Surgery

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.

NHS Health Check

Free nurse-run health check for those aged 40 to 75. Please read our Health Check Leaflet.

The Phlebotomist is available, by appointment only, to take blood samples as requested by the doctors and nurses.

If you have been asked to have a fasting blood test (eg fasting cholesterol, fasting blood sugar) please ensure that you fast from 22:00 the previous evening. However, water may be consumed as required.

Smoking Cessation

Please make an appointment with one of our three practice nurses who are all trained in smoking cessation.
