Services Provided By The Practice

Family Planning

A full range of contraceptive services are available (eg. pill, cap, intra-uterine device). You can be seen by making an appointment with one of our practice nurses. Please contact reception for further details.

Cervical Smears

When a cervical smear is due you will be contacted by the surgery. The practice nurse performs the test although your doctor will do so if you wish.

Medical Examinations

We offer a full range of medical examinations including driving medicals, employment medicals, sports medicals etc.

Examinations are by appointment and the current fees are listed in the waiting room.

Travel Vaccinations and Advice

Travel vaccinations and advice are available from our practice nurse. Please make an appointment well in advance, preferably at least eight weeks before you travel. When you make your appointment you will be asked to complete a "travel form". This helps the nurse to determine what vaccinations you should have.

Patients Over 75 Years

If you are over 75 years you should be seen annually by your doctor, the practice nurse or district nurse. This can be arranged at the surgery or, if that is not possible, a home visit will be arranged.

New Patients

All newly registered patients are offered a health check. This gives us the opportunity of taking a brief medical history before we receive your medical records.

Non-NHS Services

Certain services offered by the practice are not provided by the NHS and attract a fee. These include private sick certificates, insurance claim forms, council housing letters etc. Full detail of current fees are listed in the waiting room.

Payments must be made before letters and certificates are released.
