Clinics and services

Long term health condition clinics

The practice nurses run clinics to help patients understand and manage their conditions better.

Cervical cytology (smear tests)

It is recommended that women aged 25–49 have a smear test every three years and women aged 50–64 every five years. Smear tests are carried out by our fully trained practice nurses.

Child health surveillance

All childhood immunisations are offered by the practice and we encourage parents to ensure that their children are fully immunised. The immunisation clinic is usually held on Thursday mornings.

Family planning

All doctors offer contraceptive advice, treatment and monitoring. The practice nurses are able carry out routine pill checks and depo injections. Implant, coil and cap fitting is also available.

New baby checks

New baby checks are done when your baby is eight weeks old. Your baby will have his/her first immunisations around the time of this.

Well person checks

New patients are able to have an initial health check with the nurse if they wish. Existing patients can make use of this service if it is appropriate.

Travel vaccinations

Please telephone the surgery to make an appointment for travel advice and travel vaccinations that are available free on the NHS (diphtheria, tetanus & polio, hepatitis A, cholera and typhoid). Please allow a minimum of eight weeks before your travel date.

The nurse you see may suggest some vaccinations/malaria tablets which are only available privately, these must be accessed through a private clinic and will incur a charge. If you would prefer you can access a private clinic before seeing the nurse at the surgery.

The Travel Health Pro website has lots of useful health information and advice for travel across the world.

Travel health questionnaire

You will be asked to complete a travel health questionnaire form and bring it with you when you see the nurse.

Travelling in Europe

If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European Union website.

Tests

A wide range of tests are completed at the surgery as requested by your GP. Some tests, such as x-rays, will require your GP to refer you on to hospital.

For test results please telephone the surgery after 10:00am Monday to Friday, selecting option 3.

Please note that there is a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. Test results will only be given to you unless you have given prior permission to give them to a nominated person.

Winter flu vaccinations

Flu vaccinations are offered every year to those over 65 years or those with diabetes, chronic heart, lung or kidney disorders. The pneumococcal vaccination is also offered to all patients over 65.

Non NHS services

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:

  • Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
  • Insurance claim forms
  • Prescriptions for taking medication abroad

The fees change are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
