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

As of 1st Jan 2020 Mowbray Group Surgeries no longer offer travel health assessments. However travel advice can still be obtained from a private travel clinic. These often do require an appointment and there may be a charge. However you can also obtain information via this free travel advise website travelhealthpro.org.uk.

Following this assessment, if you require any free NHS vaccinations (diphtheria, tetanus and polio, hepatitis A, cholera, typhoid, MMR), you can contact the surgery in the usual way to arrange an appointment to have these injections. Just let our team know which ones you have been advised to have.

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.
