Clinics & Services
The surgery has 3 Practice Nurses. They are available for chronic disease management, i.e. asthma, diabetes, stroke monitoring and heart disease.
Baby immunisation clinics are run by the Practice Nurses each Monday. They offer travel immunisation advice by an initial telephone consultation for advice on what you will need and when followed by an appointment for the relevant immunisation.
Health checks are available for both men and women. A sexual health clinic is also available for booking or drop-in.
All diabetics who are not regularly monitored at the hospital will be invited to attend the Surgery on a regular basis. Progress will be carefully monitored to reduce the long term risks associated with diabetes, such as heart disease and deteriorating eyesight.
We have trained asthma nurses who review our patients. Regular monitoring of asthmatics is recommended and you are advised to keep your regular appointments.
Our nurses regularly monitor patients with hypertension. These appointments are designed to support those patients whose blood pressure is poorly controlled, providing comprehensive screening, advice and relevant medication.
You are also welcome to come in and use our patient blood pressure machine which is available in the small waiting room. Just print off your reading, write your details on the back and place in the box provided. The results will be entered into your medical record. However, please be assured that you will be contacted if there are any concerns regarding the readings.
Minor Surgery & Joint Injections
The Surgery has a well equipped treatment room and some of the Partners are trained in a range of Minor surgical & Joint injection procedures. Dermatology and Musculoskeletal Medicine are two other areas where some partners have either had hospital training or in the process of developing a special interest in. Appointments for a minor operation/ joint injection should only be made after an initial consultation with one of the doctors.
A Child Immunisation clinic is held by the Practice Nurses every Monday at the Surgery from 11:00am - 1:00pm.
All children are checked regularly during their first five years of life. This will be done by the Health Visitor. You will either be contacted by the health visitor or sent an appointment to attend at the surgery.
Coil & Implanon Fitting
These services are available at the surgery. Ladies considering a coil need to see a GP or Sue our Sexual Health Nurse initially to confirm suitability. It is then important to have some routine swabs 2 weeks before the fitting.
