Our Clinics & Services


 

Travel Advice / Immunisation


Please book an appointment with the travel nurse at least six weeks prior to departure, as some immunisations need to be given in advance to provide optimum cover. Please note that not all travel vaccines are free, so you may be required to pay a charge. It is advisable to bring cash or a cheque book with you to your appointment. Please note that the practice is unable to accept credit cards.

 

Family Planning and Cervical Smears


Women seeking family planning can always see a doctor if they wish but there is also a clinic run by specially trained nurses. These nurses will give advice on birth control, do cervical smears, pregnancy tests, teach breast examination and also advise on fitting coils and caps.

 

Antenatal Clinics


The practice runs a "shared care" system. This way you will see your own doctor and go to the hospital for booking and special tests. The clinics are run with a community midwife and health visitor so continuity of care is guaranteed for both you and your baby during and after your pregnancy.

 

Baby Clinics


The doctor and nurse run baby clinics Monday to Friday for child health surveillance and immunising your children (scroll down to see current schedule). Please ask for details at reception.

 

Counselling Services


We have counsellors who offer confidential counselling sessions at our surgeries. They are experienced in working with such issues as depression, panic attacks, stress, anxiety, loss, eating disorders and relationship problems. If you wish to see a counsellor please discuss this with your GP.

 

Patients Aged 15 - 39


We are committed to health promotion for our patients and you are encouraged to come to the practice for an "MOT" style health check, which will be done by either your doctor or one of our practice nurses. Your blood pressure, height and weight will be recorded, and a specimen of urine tested. We will discuss diet, smoking and alcohol intake, and any appropriate advice will be given. Please note that this is not a full medical but, rather, a very useful spot check which gives us the opportunity to anticipate problems before they arise.

 

NHS Health Check

 
We actively encourage patients to take part in NHS Health Check for adults aged between 40 and 74.The check enables your doctor or nurse to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and some forms of dementia.They can then give you personalised advise on how to reduce your risk.


 

Patients Aged 75 Or Over


We have a practice policy that recommends that all patients over 75 should have a yearly health check. Please ask at reception for details.

 

Carers


People who provide a substantial amount of unpaid care for another person are entitled to an assessment by their general practice on an annual basis and an assessment by social services.

Please ask at reception for an information pack.

 

 

Health Promotion


We strongly support the emphasis and trend towards health education and self-reliance. We recommend that you observe the following principles:

  • Eat healthily - keep your weight within safe limits

  • Increase activity - take more exercise

  • Stop smoking

  • Drink alcohol in moderation

The doctors and, in particular, practice nurses and health visitors are always ready to offer help and encouragement.

 

Flu And Pneumonia Vaccination


Each year a programme of influenza vaccination is carried out at the medical centre and it is strongly recommended that patients at greatest risk ie over 65 years of age, diabetics, asthmatics and those with a history of heart disease take advantage of this vaccination. Patients should contact the surgery every September to make an appointment. Pneumonia vaccinations are available all year for the same category of patients. One pneumonia vaccination will provide lifetime cover.

 

Phlebotomy

 

If your doctor or nurse recommends a blood test, we offer a  phlebotomy service 5 days a week 8am to 11am. Please ask at reception to book an appointment

 

Smoking Cessation Clinic

 

We offer a nurse led smoking cessation clinic. If you would like help to give up smoking please ask at reception for an appointment with a practice nurse.
