In addition to GP consultations the practice adheres to the General Medical Services contract for the provision of healthcare services.
We currently provide the following nurse-led clinics:
- Chronic Kidney Disease
- Contraceptive Services
- Coronary Heart Disease
- Learning Disability
- Mental Health
- Near Patient Testing (regular blood tests for patients on drugs which require monitoring)
- New Patient Health Assessments
- Smoking Cessation
- Stroke Cessation
- Well Woman/Cervical Screening
- Weight Management
All clinics are by appointment and patients are invited to attend for monitoring of their condition on a regular basis. Please inform the practice if you are unable to attend for your appointment. Patients can also request an appointment at any time to attend the Practice Nurse.
Childhood Immunisation Clinics
Immunisation Clinics are held by the Health Visitor weekly for childhood immunisations and child development checks. You will receive an appointment for the Health Authority when your child is due for immunisation. We expect all children to have the recommended vaccines which are medically indicated.
The Community Midwife runs an antenatal clinic at the practice weekly. Appointments can be booked by contacting reception.
Well Woman Clinics - Cervical Screening
Cervical screening is performed by the practice nurse or one of our female doctors if preferred. We operate a 'call and recall' system. In addition to a cervical smear test, breast examination, advice regarding life-style, menopausal problems and family planning, is offered, where appropriate.
If you are planning to travel abroad you should contact the practice at least 2 months prior to your planned trip as you may require vaccinations. We strongly advise that you should not leave it until the week before you go as many vaccines need to be administered a few weeks before travelling to ensure their full effectiveness.
You are required to complete a Travel Risk Assessment Form and return it to the practice. An appointment with the Practice Nurse will then be arranged.
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.
To help us offer you the appropriate advice, please complete this form before visiting the practice -
Travel Risk Assessment Form
In October every year we offer flu vaccinations to our patients most at risk of developing flu.
Minor Surgery procedures are scheduled to be carried out only after consultation with the doctor.
