Clinics & Services
Well Person Checks
We offer regular well person screening, including smear tests for women carried out by our practice sisters.
Periodic Health Checks
These are suitable for patients who may attend infrequently. If you are aged between 16 and 75 and have not attended the surgery within the past three years you are welcome to attend a consultation and will be offered the appropriate health checks.
Patients aged 75 and over who have not attended within twelve months are welcome to attend for a consultation and will be offered appropriate health checks. The consultation may take place in the patient’s home where, because of the patient’s medical condition, it is deemed appropriate to do so.
Comprehensive confidential advice is available from our practice nurse, including the checking, fitting and replacement of coils. Please make an appointment.
The doctors perform many minor surgical procedures at the health centre, often avoiding the need for you to go to the hospital. Please make an appointment to see your doctor for referral to this service.
Generally the ‘walking wounded’ will be dealt with by our practice sisters. Minor injuries are those that do not require immediate hospital admission.
Diabetes, Asthma, Epilepsy and Hypertension Monitoring
These are to monitor treatment and to help patients gain a better understanding of their condition. Appointments can be given to suit.
Shared Care Drug Monitoring Service
The treatment of some diseases is increasingly reliant on drugs that require regular blood monitoring.
Vaccinations and Immunisations
Children - Children will normally be called for appointments for routine vaccinations at our regular immunisation clinics. However, immunisations can be arranged at other times by appointment.
If you think your child may have missed any immunisations, please let us know, as it is important that children are fully protected. If you have any concerns over individual immunisations, the health visitor or practice sister will be happy to discuss them with you.
Adults - Routine vaccination and travel immunisations are carried out by appointment with the practice nurse.
Flu and Pneumonia Vaccinations
In accordance with Department of Health guidelines we recommend an influenza vaccination every year for patients over 65 years of age with chronic heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetics and residents of nursing homes. In addition, for people with these problems, there is a pneumonia vaccine available which can be given at the same time as the influenza vaccination. Flu vaccinations are available in October each year so please contact reception.
Child Health Surveillance
Well children’s health checks are held at regular intervals with either the doctor or health visitor according to local CCG policy. Please ensure that you have signed up for our child health surveillance programme on the registration form.
The aim of these appointments are to save GP appointments for medical conditions; as a highly specialised physiotherapist we have a lot of experience in assessing and diagnosing problems with joints, muscles and bone. This will improve access for patients with musculoskeletal conditions. Patients seen by a GP for the same problem are unable to book into this service.
