Apart from General Medical Services the practice also provides numerous other services. We have four highy trained nurses who run many nurse clinics including chronic disease management clinics, childhood & travel immunisations, wound & ucler management, cervical smears, suture removal and ear syringing.
Please let reception know what you need and then an appropriate length consultation with the nurse can be booked.
Asthma is increasingly common but can be well controlled by modern treatment. Our Practice Nurses are fully trained in asthma management. They will help you to understand your asthma, give you advice on the use of your inhalers and how to vary the dose in different circumstances. You will be invited to have an asthma review each year in the month of your birthday.
Maternity services are provided with all doctors and our own practice-based mid-wife. If you are visiting an antenatal clinic for the first time, let reception know so an appropriate appointment can be made. We do not routinely provide pregnancy testing as kits can be easily purchased from local chemists.
We provide a full family planning service at the surgery including counselling, pill prescriptions, coil and diaphragm fitting and emergency contraception.
We run regular clinics for child health screening and a full immunisation service with work shared between doctors, nurses, and health visitors. All our staff are trained in child protection.
All women aged 25 to 65 are strongly recommended to have a regular cervical smear. It is advised that the first smears are performed at 25 years of age, then 3 yearly up to 49 and 5 yearly from 50 - 64. Patients will be sent letters offering them regular check-ups.
We provide an excellent health education programme to enable you to live a healthy life. Well person checks can be booked with a number of the nurse team and topics covered include smoking, weight reduction, blood pressure and general lifestyle. We also run a very successful smoking cessation clinic.

If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
