Medical Services and Clinics

Below are the services and clinics available in your area.

Cervical smears

All women between the age of 20 and 65 should have a regular smear test every three to five years. We send out appointment reminders to all of our patients to let you know when your next smear is due.

Child development

We send out appointments for regular checks and immunisations for pre-school children. This is to make sure that our doctors and health visitors can check that children are developing normally and that there’s nothing to worry about.

Contraceptive services

Our doctors and nurses give confidential advice on all aspects of family planning, including coil fitting and emergency contraception.

Counsellors and advice services

Find out about local counsellors and advice services. You can access these services by speaking to your GP or the surgery’s receptionist.

Health screening

We offer a wide range of health screening for men and women at our surgery.

Mammograms

Women aged between 50 and 60 are advised to attend the Breast Screening Unit every three years for a mammography. This is to make sure we can check and detect any abnormalities as soon as possible. These appointments are sent out by the local Breast Unit.

Maternity care

Our antenatal and postnatal clinics are held at our surgery by our doctors and midwives.

Travel advice, vaccinations and immunisations

We offer routine vaccinations and general advice to our patients travelling abroad.

It may take up to eight weeks for a full course of vaccinations, so please contact us in advance to give you plenty of time if you’re planning to go abroad where you need to be vaccinated.

Non-NHS services

Some services available are not covered under our contract with the NHS. This means that these services need to be paid for.

The services that include charges are:

  • Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements
  • Insurance claim forms
  • Passport signing
  • Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
  • Private sick notes
  • Vaccination certificates.

Our reception staff and GPs will be happy to talk through the charges with you during your appointment.
