Clinics & Services
The surgery offers a variety of clinics and services; please see list below. All our clinics and services are provided by highly qualified clinicians. If you need to use any of the services listed, please contact reception at your surgery and they will be able to book/refer you to the service.
We have an advisor at the surgery every Thursday to help you to stop smoking and ensure that you receive full support.
Our nurse practitioner and practice nurse's regularly monitor patients and alter their treatments to suit needs, therefore, helping to reduce the number of attacks and hospital admissions. If you have suffered with a Stroke / TIA you will be automatically called to a clinic.
Well Baby and Child Health Surveillance
Dr Ann Bolitho-Jones runs child health and immunisation Clinics on Thursday afternoons. We are also looking at starting Health Visitor led clinics at the surgery - More information to follow soon.
Flu & Pneumococcal Vaccination
All patients with diabetes/asthma/lung/liver/heart and kidney disease and residents of residential and nursing homes are recommended to have a flu vaccination. All carers and patients aged 65 and over are also advised to be vaccinated. Please contact the surgery around mid September for further details.
Your doctor may refer you for chiropody. You can also refer yourself, please ask the reception for more details. Priority is given to patients who have diabetes or other significant conditions.
If you need advice on contraception, please make an appointment with the doctor. We operate a coil and implant fitting service; please speak to the receptionist who will make you an appointment to discuss this with a doctor.
The majority of our diabetic patients are cared for and monitored at the surgery, with routine checks with our practice nurse. New diabetics are carefully supported with sessions on a one-to-one basis.
National Diabetes Audit 2018/19
The Practice is taking part in this national audit throughout 2018 & 2019, results gathered from patient records will be made available to the practice to show how we manage those with or those who potentially may develop Diabetes. The audit will be carried out by NHS Digital and initially they will gather information based on NHS numbers and dates of birth and once accessed these details will be removed so all information is anonymised, no patient names or personal details will be accessible during this process. If you would like further information on this audit please collect a leaflet from the practice or look at the National Diabetes webpage. If you do not wish to take part in the audit please let the practice know.
Asthma & Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Our practice nurses regularly monitor patients and alter their treatments to suit individual needs, therefore, helping to reduce the number of attacks and hospital admissions. Emergency facilities are held within the buildings to deal with asthma situations promptly, rather than referring to hospital (unless absolutely necessary)
If you have blood pressure problems, we have a machine in the reception area, so you can monitor your levels and update us with your readings.
These are carried out by the practice nurse or doctor. There is a recall system in operation, however, if you are not called when you think appropriate, please contact the surgery.
Back Pain Clinic
We hold a back pain clinic every other Thursday evening consisting of exercise and stretching classes. If you feel you may benefit from these sessions please speak to your doctor for booking.
