Clinics

An appointment should be made at the reception for these clinics

Maternity Medical Services

Full pregnancy care is provided in conjunction with the community midwife.  The antenatal clinic is held on Wednesday mornings.  Appointments for postnatal checks can be booked at reception.

Asthma/ COPD Clinic

This is run by the practice nurse and doctor.  Up to date patient education material and equipment are at hand for running this clinic efficiently as one of the doctors has a special interest in this area.  All asthmatics are advised to see the doctor at least once a year, preferably twice.  Please contact reception for an appointment.

Diabetic Clinic

A comprehensive range of resources eg. blood monitoring machines, patient education leaflets, and books are available to carry out our diabetic care programme.  Please contact Reception to make an appointment.

We maintain professional links with the local diabetologists, opticians, chiropodist, and dieticians as they play an important role in diabetic care.  All diabetics are invited for an annual examination at the clinic if this has not already occurred at the hospital.  Screening for diabetes is carried out for patients at risk.

Diabetes Management

As a practice, we are committed to ensuring that all of our diabetic patients are receiving the best possible care and that we are prescribing effectively. We are currently reviewing patients who are monitoring their blood glucose (sugar) levels, using a blood glucose meter, as part of their diabetes management.

We are looking to rationalise our prescribing of blood glucose testing strips in accordance with local NHS guidelines and with this in mind, we would like you to try the new GlucoRx Nexus meter, which you can collect FREE of charge from the surgery at your own convenience.

Your computer records have already been amended to include the GlucoRx Nexus strips and GlucoRx lancets, so the next time you request a prescription for strips or lancets it will be the GlucoRx brand that will be supplied.

NB: in the interest of reducing waste please finish using your current stock of strips and lancets before commencing with the new ones.

Thank you for your continued support.

Family Planning

All aspects of family planning and advice including I.U.C.D. or coil-fitting service can be arranged by the doctor.

Health Promotion Checks

These are carried out on a daily basis by the doctor or practice nurse.   The practice offers help with stopping smoking, high blood pressure, weight reduction, and healthy lifestyle.  Large amounts of patient education material are available.  The practice carries out heart disease and stroke prevention programmes.

Heart Disease and Blood Pressure Clinic

The practice has set high priority to the management and prevention of heart disease and stroke.  This is run by the practice nurse and doctor who arrange assessments and necessary investigations.

Insurance & HGV Medicals

Private medical checks including an elderly driver, pre-employment medicals etc, are carried out but a separate fee is payable in accordance with the BMA rating.  Please ask at reception for details of these fees.

Regular Health Checks

Every patient aged between 16 and 74 can make an appointment with the nurse once every three years for a health check and advice on healthy lifestyle.  If you are over 35 you are advised to have your blood pressure checked every three years.

Sickness Certificates

For the first six days, you do not need to see your doctor for a sickness certificate.  Only if you are still ill on the 7th day you need to make an appointment to see a doctor who will then issue you with a sickness certificate.

Smear Tests

All women from the age of 25 (in some cases sooner) are invited for regular smear tests.  Routine smears are performed three yearly from the age 25 to 64, although some women will continue to be invited up to the age of 70 on the advice of the cytology laboratory.
