Clinics & Services
We have a team of 5 Practice Nurses and 5 Healthcare Assistants, as well as a Healthcare Specialist who can provide a wide range of services from dressings and vaccinations to chronic disease management as well as treatment of minor injuries.
- Childhood Immunisations
Clinics are held on a weekly basis. Please remember to bring your child's record book.
- Travel Vaccinations
Advising on the appropriate vaccinations for different countries can take some time, so please make an appointment with a Nurse. This should be at least eight weeks before you intend to travel
- Cervical Smears
National guidelines recommend that all women between the ages of 25 and 65 years be called for cervical screening. Women between these ages will be recalled automatically. Please make an appointment with the nurse once you have received your invitation.
- Chronic Disease Management
Patients with conditions such as Asthma, Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease, COPD or Hypertension will be invited in annually for a review as per national guidelines.
- Minor Surgery
We are able to undertake cryotherapy, joint injections, excisions, incisions and more. Please make an appointment with your GP first who will make the necessary arrangements if required.
- Family Planning Clinic
Patients who are taking the oral contraceptive pill should be followed up annually to have a review of their health, weight and blood pressure. At this time advice can also be given with regards to other contraceptive methods such as a contraceptive implant or coil.
- Ante-natal/Post-natal Clinics
These are run by the Midwife and appointments can be booked at the Main Reception desk.
- Smoking Cessation
If you would like to quit smoking please make an appointment to see Debbie Rouse our Healthcare Assistant. Debbie is a qualified Smoking Cessation Advisor and will be happy to help you on your journey to being smoke free.
