Clinics & Services
All children are immunised at weekly clinics by the health visitors. Development assessments are performed by the doctor with the health visitor in attendance. The health visitors can help with advice on health care, particularly for expectant mothers, babies and small children, the elderly and the handicapped. The health visitors have an office in the surgery and can be contacted on weekdays by telephoning 01554 751816.
We undertake full maternity care, both antenatal and postnatal. Our midwives offer help and advice throughout pregnancy and will care for mother and baby during the postnatal period in the home.
This clinic is held weekly for injections, aspirations, incisions, cautery (by cryosurgery) and other lesions requiring removal.
We offer a full contraceptive service to our patients, including fitting of coils. Special appointments may be required, so please discuss this with the receptionist.
All women are encouraged to have a regular smear test which the doctor or practice nurse will carry out. Women should have this done every three years and appointments made by a computer recall system are posted to those women whose smear is due.
Chronic Disease Management
Clinics are run to advise on asthma, heart disease, diabetes and hypertension. Patients are invited to attend for assessment, planning treatment regimes, support and education.
An influenza vaccination programme is in operation every autumn to ensure that all 'at risk' patients receive appropriate immunisations.
