Clinics and Services
Child Health Clinics and Child Immunisations
These are run by our Health Visitors every Tuesday from 1.30pm-3.15pm. Our Practice Nurses are also available to give child immunisations on Tuesday afternoon (by appointment). Every week one of the Doctors is available to perform 8 week baby checks. Appointments for the 8 week checks are arranged for you by our administration team.
All eligible women between the ages of 25 and 64 are advised to have a cervical cancer smear test - every 3 years up to age 50 and every 5 years over 50.
The national screening programme has a computerised call and recall system, and will send regular invitations to attend. Appointments can be made with our Practice Nurses by contacting reception.
Several of our Doctors are qualified to carry out minor surgery.
Our Community Midwives work with the Doctors to provide antenatal and postnatal care for our patients. Pre-pregnancy information and advice can be discussed with the Doctor or Midwife by appointment. It is important that you contact the surgery once you know you are pregnant to find out how you can make an appointment with the Midwife.
Flu and Pneumonia Clinics
Our Practice Nurses run annual flu clinics. All patients with asthma, diabetes, kidney disease, immuno-suppressed illnesses, chronic breathing problems and coronary heart disease are advised to have an annual flu vaccination, as well as carers, pregnant women and all patients aged 65 or over. Pneumonia vaccinations are also advised for these patient groups; unlike the flu vaccination which is given annually, the pneumonia vaccination is only given once. Appointments can be made by contacting reception.
