We have a dedicated email address for the PPG which is hav-pct.ppg-maylands@nhs.net

Services

Maternity Care

pregnant11Care 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.

Family Planning

Our doctors and some nurses are trained to provide a range of contraceptive advice, including coil and cap fittings.

Minor Surgery

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.

Immunisations

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 diabetesinvitation if you are considered to be at risk.

Diabetic Clinic

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.

Chlamydia Testing

Chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed STI in England and rates are increasing.

You may not have been aware of this before, but we offer this test to everyone between 15 and 25 years old.  For most people, chlamydia has no symptoms, so  you probably won't know if you or your partner(s) have it without having a test.  If you are sexually active and under 25 years old, you should be tested for chlamydia every year, or when you change your partner.

Untreated chlamydia can have serious long term health implications and may lead to being unable to have children at a later time.  Any form of unprotected sex can put you at risk.

Please come into the surgery to pick up your kit.

The test for chlamydia is simple and confidential; you just need to pee in a pot.  This is a quick, easy and painless test that you do yourself.   YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE EXAMINED.  The results can take about 10 days but they can be texted to you directly.
