Clinics & Services

In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a comprehensive range of clinics and healthcare services:

Patients with asthma are encouraged to attend for a regular review in order to optimise control and minimise any symptoms. This review should ideally be annually. Appointments should be booked with one of our specialist nurses.

Diabetic Clinic

We have two very experienced nurses within the surgery who are able to provide comprehensive care for patients with both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. There are several other nurses within the nursing team qualified to see patients with Type 2 diabetes.

Patients are able to have their annual retinal screening done at the surgery and are recalled by the retinal screening programme.

Cervical Smears

The practice nurses do these unless you request otherwise. You will be invited for a smear in accordance with the national recall policy (unless the cytologist/consultant recommends repeating the smear more often).

Childhood Immunisations  childimmunise
