Clinics & Services
These are held by appointment daily.
An automatic reminder is sent to you when a smear is due.
We currently have a Diabetes Nurse working within the surgery who oversees the care of all our Diabetes patients. All of our diabetes patients will be called for a Diabetes annual health check where they will see a Health Care Assistant for general observations and a blood test. All results will be given to the Diabetes Nurse for review along with our lead Diabetes GP and if further input is required, you will be offered a further appointment to come in and see the Diabetes Nurse who will provide additional advice and where necessary, relevant treatment.
For patients who believe their Diabetes is not well controlled or they need further input, we would ask that you contact the Reception team who will take the details and arrange an appointment with the most relevant healthcare professional. This may be a GP or the Diabetes Nurse.
Family Planning Advice (including coils, emergency contraception and fitting of Implanon)
A full range of confidential advice is available by consulting any of our doctors.

We have a number of staff available to fit Coils or Contraceptive Implants. Please ask at reception for more information.
Minor Surgery Services
Our doctors and nurses carry these out – you will need a special appointment.

Travel Advice and Immunisations
If possible see our practice nurse at least two months before your departure.
She will advise you on health matters related to the countries you are visiting and arrange the vaccinations required. Some of these take time to become effective and need a course of treatment.
