Child Health Clinics

All of our doctors are qualified to assess child development. Checks are performed by the doctors or health visitors at fixed times, up until your child starts school. You will be sent an appointment when a check becomes due or you will be contacted by the health visitor. If you are concerned in any way about your child’s health, please see the health visitor or doctor before this.

Childhood Immunisation

The doctor, practice nurse or health visitor will advise you of these. We do provide the full range of vaccinations which includes triple vaccine, hib vaccine, polio, pneumococcal vaccine and MMR. You will receive a reminder card asking you to request an appointment with the practice nurse.

Minor Surgery

Dr Burrell carries out minor surgery procedures by appointment. All of the doctors will be happy to advise you on this. Your name will be added to the waiting list and an appointment date and time sent to you.

Diabetic Clinic

Smoking Cessation

All the GPs, nurses and HCAs are trained to give smoking cessation advice and will be able to give you information on help and support that is available.

If you have been advised by the surgery to submit a smoking review, please use our Smoking Review form.

Phlebotomy

Phlebotomy clinics are run from 08:30-12:00 and 13:20-16:00, Monday to Friday. If you have been issued with a blood test form either by our doctors or the hospital, you will need to bring this with you when the test is completed.

Warfarin Testing

Warfarin (INR) testing is carried out at the practice. We will undertake the blood test, monitor your INR and advise you of the correct dose. Please request your test results the day after your blood test in the afternoon. We will also provide the date of your next test.

Sigmoidoscopy (Proctoscopy)

Dr Rash carries out sigmoidoscopy by appointment only. If this procedure is required, you will be added to the waiting list and an appointment date and time sent to you with an information sheet about the procedure.

Family Planning

Contraceptive care and advice are provided by all the doctors and practice nurses during normal surgery hours.

If you have been advised by the surgery to do so, please submit a Contraceptive Pill Review form.

Influenza Vaccination / Pneumococcal Vaccination

We recommend that patients with chronic lung, liver, kidney or heart disease, diabetes and the elderly over 65 years are offered these vaccinations. Those who may be immunosuppressed or who have undergone a splenectomy are also recommended for the vaccinations. Influenza vaccination is given annually and pneumococcal vaccine is usually given only once per lifetime and is available throughout the year.

Well Person Checks

If a patient aged between 16 and 75 requests an appointment but has not been seen during the preceding three years, the doctor or nurse may undertake appropriate additional examinations and tests either during the appointment or at a subsequent appointment. If a patient aged over 75 has not been seen during the preceding 12 months by a health care professional, they will be contacted by the surgery and offered an appointment for a well person check.
