PLEASE ENQUIRE FOR FULL DETAILS OF OUR IN-HOUSE, COMPREHENSIVE, CONVENIENT AND EXTENSIVE SERVICES, BUT HERE IS A SUMMARY:
We aspire to help you to be as healthy as possible over the long term and to be able to do as much as you can do using the best evidence based medicine and looking at the whole person. We try to bring the best traditions of personalised family practice but also use side by side use the cutting edge of the latest thinking of medical technology.
We specialise in the management of long term conditions of all sorts but especially diabetes and mental health.
We operate a strict policy that most patients on any long term medication should have a check every six months.
The practice nurses are available by appointment for routine blood pressure/heart checks, child and travel immunisations, dressings, ear syringing smoking cessation and cervical smears.
However, they are able to offer far more.
Please have a look at the separate tab on the convenient in-house services our skilled practice nurses can offer you.
We offer comprehensive Child Health Services in conjunction with our Health Visitor and School Nursing colleagues.
We routinely offer Baby Checks at 6-8 weeks of age in conjunction with the first child immunisations and post natal checks.
Routine childhood vaccinations are provided by the surgery and are administered by the practice nurse.
If you are concerned or worried about anything and you have read or heard regarding any vaccination or diseases they protect against, please talk to us.
We offer shared care during pregnancy.
Please let reception know that your appointment is for antenatal care, as this allows us to allocate appropriate time. Again for your convenience we do all postnatal checks at 6-8 weeks after the baby is born and usually this is combined with a routine baby check.
Family Planning Services
We offer on site, convenient, full, expert and comprehensive range of family planning methods to our patients including fitting of inter-uterine devices and systems as well as fitting of contraceptive implants, at our practice. Female doctors are available upon request.
Please book an appointment with the nurse for these. The best time to have these done, if you are still having them, is two weeks from the start of the last period.
Remember Cervical Cancer is a preventable disease and still tragically strikes a disproportionate number of women every year who have never had a smear or have had one infrequently.
The surgery is able to offer a wide range of minor surgical procedures in-house and specialise in joint injections for rheumatic conditions. Please contact us for details.
