Clinics & Services
In addition to general medical consultations we are pleased to be able to provide specialist clinics and services covering the following areas:
Health promotion is undertaken by the nursing staff opportunistically. They also provide advice on diabetes, hypertension, asthma, HRT, contraception and diet/lifestyle.
All doctors provide family planning services by appointment within normal surgery times. In addition we can fit and/or remove Implanon and coils.
This is held every Thursday between 13:00 and 15:30 by appointment. The clinic is run by the community midwife.
Postnatal checks are undertaken by appointment with the doctors. Your postnatal appointment is arranged by the surgery and will be sent to you by post.
Cervical Smear Tests
These are recommended for all women between age 25 and 64 but are advisable from age 20 onwards. This is carried out routinely at around three- yearly intervals for ladies 25-49 years and five-yearly from 50-64 years. Sometimes more frequent tests are required and in this case you will be notified by letter and asked to make an appointment with either the doctor or the practice nurse.
These are by appointment only with the nurse practitioner on Tuesday afternoons between 15:30 and 17:30. If this is not convenient during normal surgery times by arrangement.

Child health surveillance checks are carried out by the doctors on all children registered for this service at 6 weeks. The 6 week check is carried out at the mother’s postnatal appointment time. The 8 month, 2 year and 31/2 year checks are carried out by the health visitor and additional checks can be carried out by the doctor if requested by the health visitor.
