Other Clinics & Services
Blood Test Clinics
Blood test clinics are held Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday from 9.30am til 2pm at the surgery. Attendance is by appointment – check with reception for availability.
Blood test clinics are also available at other local practices – Please check with reception staff.
Patients with chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes, asthma and heart disease are routinely invited for an annual check up to monitor their condition and any treatment. We would encourage all such patients to respond promptly to this invitation, which forms a vital part of their management.
It is strongly recommended that all patients over 65 and all those suffering from chronic conditions receive a yearly vaccination against influenza. The safe and effective vaccine is available from the surgery usually during the months of October and November.
Our practice nurses offer full and up-to-date information on the important question of prevention of diseases whilst abroad and are able to provide immunisations and medications as needed. The majority of these are available at no cost. Please contact one of the nurses at the surgery to discuss your travel plans, preferably at least 8 weeks before your departure and no later than 4 weeks before your departure.
Most times that you want to see the doctor it is because you have symptoms that suggest there may be a problem. However, there are some diseases and conditions that are worth looking for before they cause symptoms. This process is called Screening. Examples of such conditions include diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. These may be detected by simple measurements and tests. Our practice nurses offer a ‘well person’ service where these tests are available along with other health advice.
If you have not seen the doctor for 3 years you may like to take advantage of this service.
The practice has been approved as having special skills in minor surgery. This means that for a wide variety of minor conditions, you can be treated in the surgery. Please see any of the doctors to discuss further.
A full range of contraceptive advice and services are available, including emergency contraception (morning after pill), contraceptive implants and coils. Please make an appointment with the doctor of your choice should you wish to discuss contraception.
Dr Hartwell runs a specific Family Planning Clinic on alternate Wednesday afternoons. Please check with reception staff for availability.
Childhood surveillance and immunisation
All children in the practice are offered regular health and development checks during their first 4 years and are seen by the health visitor. There is an immunisations team that provide a full programme of childhood immunisation. It is the firm belief of the practice that all children should have all the immunisations appropriate to them. Should you have any concerns regarding immunisation contact child health on 01924 351519, but there are very few occasions that immunisation is not recommended.
