We offer the full range of immunisations for children and adults, e.g. diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, Hib, polio, MMR, rubella, influenza and pneumonia. If you have a child that needs a Pre-school Booster please book an appointment with the nurse to be seen.
Patients planning a trip abroad should check with us at least 6-8 weeks before they are due to travel so that we can make sure than any necessary vaccinations are completed in time. The surgery is an officially approved Yellow Fever immunisation centre. More information and a travel health questionnaire can be found on the above tab.
The surgery offers a range of additional services, some of these can be provided either in the form of a clinic or by individual consultation and can also be performed by either the practice nurse, the healthcare assistant or a member of the Community Nursing Team.
Maternity medical service - a full service from antenatal care through to confinement and post-natal check.
Contraceptive service - advice and management is given on all types of contraception (pill, coil, implant, injection, cap, sheath, etc).
Minor surgery - this can include: removal of moles, cysts, skin lesions, warts, in-growing toenails, foreign bodies, injections into joints and soft tissue e.g. treatment of tennis elbow and HRT implants.
Mini health update - 16 year olds - A confidential mini health questionnaire is sent to all our younger patients on or around their 16th birthday. This to ensure that whilst they may not have been seen by a doctor or practice nurse for some time we have an accurate record of their current health status.
Asthmatics - patients suffering from asthma can check that they are using inhalers, etc. properly and discuss any problems or anxieties. Advice is also given on how to successfully manage the condition.
Diabetics - patients suffering from diabetes should have regular checks. We offer an annual eye screening service during which the retina is photographed and then examined to monitor the progress of the disease. Our diabetic nurse also sees diabetic patients regularly for blood tests and a complete health check. Any problems or anxieties can be discussed as well as advice given.
Over 75 medical - we offer a yearly health check to all patients 75 and over. Please ask the receptionist if you wish to make an appointment for this check.
