Care is provided by all doctors for ladies both during and after pregnancy. If you think you are pregnant please make a twenty minute 'booking' appointment to see your doctor.
Our doctors and some nurses are trained to provide a range of contraceptive advice.
We have well-equipped treatment and minor surgery rooms with trained practice nurses, and all the doctors perform minor operations.
Cervical Smear Tests
This test is performed to check for cancer of the neck of the womb before it develops. All women are called for regular checks. You can book an appointment during normal surgery times but please tell the receptionist that you are booking a smear test so we can give you a longer appointment.
You should be advised by your health visitor about when your child's immunisations are due and you will receive an invitation from the practice. Flu injections are offered to all people considered at particular risk, such as the elderly, those suffering from long-standing chest complaints, heart disease, diabetes and asthma. The immunisation is available every year from October and you will receive a written invitation if you are considered to be at risk.
Regular follow-ups and annual screenings are important for prevention, early detection and treatment of the complaints which may arise from this disease. The clinics are led by practice nurses with GP support.
