Information on specific clinics
Mother and Baby Clinic
Mother and Baby Clinics are a combined appointment for Mum and Baby to be checked 8 weeks after birth. This is part of routine child health surveillance and a chance to get advice on matters such as breastfeeding and contraception, for baby to be weighed and have immunisations
We offer appointments for routine childhood immunisations on a variety of days and times including Sundays. We have plenty of appointments please call reception and book an appointment if your baby/child is due immunisations!
Cervical screening is available to women and people with a cervix aged 25 to 64 in England. It is a very important screening test
We have plenty of appointments with a variety of days and times - please call reception and book if you are due your smear test!
Cervical screening looks for the human papillomavirus (HPV) which can cause abnormal cells on the cervix. If HPV is found, a cytology test is undertaken to check for any abnormal cells
If no abnormal cells are found, a follow up screen is arranged for 12 months’ time. This will check to see if the immune system has cleared the virus
Most HPV infections are transient, and slightly abnormal cells often go away on their own when the virus clears. If HPV persists, abnormal cells can, if left untreated, turn into cancer over time.
If abnormal cells are found, the individual will be referred to colposcopy (a special test-it is a large magnifying glass that a doctor or specialist nurse (colposcopist) uses to closely look at cervix in more detail)
For more information please contact us or look at the NHS website https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/cervical-screening/
Minor Surgery Clinic
We hold minor surgery clinics at various times. Patients can only book an appointment if they have been referred by the doctor.
Long Term Conditions Clinics
If you have a long term condition you will need to see a clinician once a year for a review. This might be with a Doctor/Nurse/Pharmacist. Please call reception to book your appointment.
Examples of long term conditions are:
- COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
- Hypertension (High blood pressure)
- Ischaemic Heart Disease
If you have 2 or more long term conditions you may be eligible for an extended (30 minute) consultation called 'Time to Talk'. This gives you a chance to talk about the aspects of your care that are most important to you. Please call reception for more information
Social Prescribing Services
There are many things that impact our health and wellbeing, including feeling isolated or struggling with practical challenges. We have Social Prescribers in our practice who can speak with adults registered with the practice. They will ask you about what is happening in your life, what you enjoy, and what is getting in the way. The Social Prescriber might suggest services and activities that might help you or simply work with you to build your skills and confidence. They can tell you about community based services, e.g. lunch clubs, gardening groups, benefits advice, exercise groups.
Please ask your GP to refer you to social prescribing.
