Clinics and Services
Changes made by Community Services means that midwives no longer hold clinics at the surgery. First appointments are usually at 10-11 weeks, and are carried out by the midwife. Please contact the midwife to arrange this.

Post-natal pre-bookable appointments are held during morning surgeries (not available at walk-in)
The Baby Clinic is held on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons by appointment.
Child Immunisation Clinic
Due to the complexity of vaccines used we prefer to carry out all childhood vaccinations in dedicated time slots on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Appointments are usually sent by post. If this presents particular problems for you please speak to a member of staff.
Mid-teen booster vaccinations can be performed at any time.
Chronic Disease Management
Our nursing team manage chronic illnesses such as Asthma, Diabetes, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), CKD (chronic kidney disease), hypothyroidism, and lots more.
Patients with a chronic illness may need regular checks to monitor their health and wellbeing. This may involve certain tests, such as a blood test, a blood pressure check and sometimes an ECG (echocardiogram) to check their heart.
If you think that you may have an undiagnosed chronic illness, please contact the surgery for an appointment with a doctor. The doctor will then arrange the appropriate tests if required.
If you already have a diagnosis your doctor or nurse will be able to advise you of which tests you need and how frequently you will need to be tested.
Family Planning Advice
All the doctors are fully trained in family planning. Patients requiring Emergency contraception should contact the doctor as soon as possible, including evenings and weekends. Appointments are available for IUD (coil) and Implant fittings.
Examinations for Insurance, Sports, Driving or other medicals are all by appointment. There is a charge for these which varies depending on the nature of the examination and report required.
Appointments are available for some minor surgery procedures. The clinic for treatment of warts and verrucas however is no longer available.
