In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a range of clinics and healthcare services:
Some of these clinics will cover more than one area, e.g. If you have diabetes and hypertension ideally both problems will be dealt with at the same time.
A shared care worker, sees patients with drug and alcohol dependency problems. Any patients with drug addiction problems can be referred to the clinic by their GP.
Treatment may involve supportive counselling, substitution therapy or referral to specialist services. Plese ask your GP for further information about this service.
Usually 6 weeks after the birth of your baby, both mother and child will be sent an appointment to attend surgery for a checkup with a doctor and your health visitor. Your baby's weight, length and head circumference will be measured and the doctor will examine your baby to check their heart, hips, circulation etc. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss any concerns you have.
You yourself will be examined if necessary and you will be able to discuss such topics as contraception.
Our doctors are experienced in performing minor operations to remove skin lesions.. These are usually done under local anaesthetic in the treatment room with the assistance of a practice nurse. If you would like a skin lesion removed, please make an appointment to have it first assessed by one of the doctors who perform minor surgery.

Each autumn vulnerable groups of patients will be offered a flu vaccination, i.e. all patients over 65, those with diabetes, chest, heart and asthmatic complaints. Details of the open clinics will be advertised in surgery and locally. As we no longer send out individual invites please enquire as to the dates of the open clinics.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
