Maternity services: Please call for an appointment at approximately six weeks after your last period. We do not routinely do pregnancy tests to confirm your own test.
Minor surgery: Many surgical procedures can be performed, and warts treated, at the surgery. Please be aware we are subject to the NHS cosmetic exclusion policy which means we cannot undertake surgery for purely cosmetic reasons.
NHS Health Checks: The NHS Health Check is a sophisticated check of your heart health. It is aimed at adults in England aged 40 to 74, it checks your vascular or circulatory health and works out your risk of developing some of the most disabling, but preventable, illnesses. You'll be invited for an NHS Health Check every five years if you are between 40 and 74 years old, as long as you don't have an existing vascular condition.
Patients with a chronic disease: We actively recall patients who have a chronic disease. This is usually in their birth month.
Teenagers: Teenagers have special worries and risks. The doctors and nurses are all pleased to discuss them at any appointment. Your confidentiality will be respected. Teenagers can be seen without their parents’ knowledge.
Tetanus prevention: The objective of the immunisation programme is to provide a minimum of five doses of tetanus-containing vaccine at appropriate intervals for all individuals. For the majority of cases, a total of five doses of vaccine at the appropriate intervals is considered to give satisfactory long-term protection.
Weight/smoking/alcohol/drug/ problems: These are all important to your health. The doctors and nurses are all happy to discuss these with you at any appointment.
