Clinics & Services
These are done by appointment with the nurse or doctor. We recommend regular smears for women between the ages of 25-65. Reminders are sent to patients whose smears are due.
A clinic is run at the practice on Tuesday afternoon by the practice nurse and one of the doctors for those diabetics who do not need regular visits to the hospital diabetic clinic.
We advise on all types of contraception. You can see any of the doctors or the nurse for advice during normal surgery hours. Coil and cap fittings need a special appointment.
We are happy to provide antenatal and postnatal care with the help of the community midwife. She is also able to offer pre-conception advice.
These include procedures such as removal of some warts and skin lumps. Please make an appointment to see a doctor, to discuss this and whether it is appropriate to perform the operation in the surgery. A further appointment may be required.
Practice Nurse Clinics
The practice nurses are based in the surgery and can be seen by appointment. They provide a wide range of treatments including:
- Contraceptive advice (including emergency contraception)
- They are also able to give advice for some minor illnesses (ask at reception for details).
If you’re a smoker, giving up is the single most valuable step you can take to improve your health. It can improve your lifestyle and finances too!
Please book an appointment with one of our practice nurses to discuss quitting smoking.
The NHS can help you to quit using a variety of support tools.
When you go smoke free, you are up to four times more likely to succeed if you use NHS support and stop smoking medicines such as patches or gum to manage your cravings.
