Clinics We Offer

These are held during the surgery opening hours.

For further information please refer to the notice in the reception area.

Antenatal Clinic

The antenatal clinic is held on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and our midwife is in attendance.

Postnatal

Please let the surgery know immediately when you arrive home with your new baby so that care by the doctor, midwife and health visitor team can be arranged without delay. Could you also please send the childs registration form to the surgery as soon as possible after the birth has been registered. At eight weeks after delivery a full postnatal check at the surgery is offered to all mothers. Cervical cytology and contraception advice is offered at this clinic where your child will also receive their first immunisation.

Child Immunisation Clinic

All children are encouraged to be immunised at the surgery and the first injections are offered at the postnatal clinic.

Well Person Clinic

Well person checks are carried out by our practice nurses and appointments can be made without seeing a doctor. We aim to promote better health and screen for certain conditions.

Minor Surgery

After initial consultation with a doctor some routine minor surgical procedures including joint injections, cautery, incisions, excisions etc, can be arranged. Such procedures are performed in the surgery.

Family Planning Clinic

A  family planning service is available and the clinic is held every Wednesday morning. Postnatal checks are also carried out at this clinic.

Morning After Contraception

Despite the fact that we can supply most forms of contraception, there may be occasions when people do not take precautions during sexual intercourse.

The morning after pill can, in fact, be used up to 72 hours (three days) after unprotected sex, although the sooner it is taken the more effective it is. Because of this, in addition to the practice offering the morning after pill, it is also available from local chemists free of charge. Please contact them for further details.

Cervical Smears

Cancer of the cervix is easily treated and it is important that all females between the age of 25 and 65 have regular smear tests to detect early signs of the disease.

Appointments for smears can be made with the practice nurse.

Counselling

We have a trained counsellor available at the surgery. Referrals are usually made by a doctor or nurse.
