The GP's run our Child Health Clinic. During this clinic we will perform the 6 week check on new babies.

We offer review appointments for patients with diabetes. Please book an appointment with a Practice Nurse.
We offer an annual check up to any patient suffering from epilepsy. It gives patients an opportunity to air any problems they may be having and enables us to arrange blood, urine and other checks as may be appropriate. Please make an appointment with a GP.
The Health Care Assistant is trained in weight management, blood pressure, phlebotomy (taking blood), Flu/Pneumo/B12/Shingles injections, NHS health checks, ECG's and breath tests. If you would like to make an appointment with the Health Care Assistant, please contact the surgery.
Any patient can book for a routine check with the nurse if they feel that they would like one. Such a screen would include height / weight / blood pressure / urine examination, as well as other tests appropriate to specific individuals.
Blood testing occurs as usual in the pathology department of the hospital Monday to Friday without an appointment.
However we do have pre-booked phlebotomy appointments with our HCA’s during surgery hours . Please ring the surgery to make an appointment for this.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
You can now book your appointment for a flu vaccination. Appointments are available from Monday 24th September 2018. Please contact the surgery to book your appointment.
Please note if you are 65 and over you will be offered a flu vaccine, here at the surgery, that is usually given to those patients aged 64 and under. This is the quadrivalent flu vaccine and contains 4 strains of flu. The trivalent flu vaccine that is recommended for patients over 65 contains 3 strains of flu. The reason we can only offer the quadrivalent flu vaccine is due to national shortage. If you wish to have the recommended trivalent flu vaccine there are other providers.
