We seek to offer the full range of NHS General Practice services. If you require a specific service please feel free to ask if it is one that is commissioned or provided privately e.g. medical reports.
Our Nursing Team can assess your asthma, offer advice on management of your condition and answer any queries. They will also see asthmatic patients at other times by request.
Our practice nurses are trained to carry out cervical smears. It is recommended that all ladies from the ages of 25 to 64 have a cervical smear on a regular basis as advised by the DoH.
CHILD HEALTH SURVEILLANCE
All child development checks are carried out by our team of Health Visitors. Appointments are sent by the Health Visitors support staff.

DIABETIC CLINIC (Nurse Karen)
This clinic is run by the diabetic specialist nurses to help patients manage their diabetes. Regular follow-ups and annual screening are important for the prevention, early detection and treatment of the complications of diabetes. Advice is given on all aspects of diabetic care including eye problems, foot care and dietary advice, as well as drug and injection treatments.
All our nurses can give general advice about all matters of contraception and perform coil checks, however Tracey and Denise can issue repeat prescriptions for the pill. Emergency contraception can be offered up to 72 hours after unprotected sexual intercourse. Please telephone for advice if required.
Our doctors fit coils & implanons, after the appropriate review.
