Research

Please ring and book an appointment with reception and they will advise on the best practitioner for your appointment

If you suffer from Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease or have had a Stroke you will receive annual review reminders asking you to book an initial appointment with our Assistant Practitioners who will carry out the background checks such as blood pressure, height, weight and often take a blood test.  An appointment will then be made for a review with a practice nurse who will discuss the blood results and any further management of your condition that may be needed. We strongly advise that you attend for your reviews as this may prevent you developing complications from your condition.

Vaccination And Immunisation

The doctors recommend full immunisation for both adults and children. In addition we are able to provide influenza and pneumococcal vaccinations for the over 65s and those at risk (October and November) along with travel vaccinations (see the Travel Information page for more information). Please contact reception to request a travel form or compete the online form within the Travel Information section .

Please see separate section for flu vaccination

Cervical Smears

These are carried out by the practice nurses during normal surgery time. When your smear is due you will be contacted by letter.  

Maternity Care

Anticoagulation (INR) Clinic

This nurse-led clinic uses specialist computer software to calculate the INR from a finger prick blood sample. This is a “one stop” clinic enabling patients to leave with an up-to-date dosing letter.

Minor Surgery

If you require minor surgery your doctor will advise you to make an appointment with them and one of our practice nurses. This will be carried out in one of the fully equipped nurse’s treatment rooms.

Well Person Health Checks

Our assistant practitioners can offer well person checks, including blood pressure checks and blood tests to check cholesterol levels.
