These are done by appointment with the nurse or doctor. We recommend regular smears for women between the ages of 25-65. Reminders are sent to patients whose smears are due.
A clinic is run at the practice on Tuesday afternoon by the practice nurse and one of the doctors for those diabetics who do not need regular visits to the hospital diabetic clinic.
We advise on all types of contraception. You can see any of the doctors or the nurse for advice during normal surgery hours. Coil and cap fittings need a special appointment.
We are happy to provide antenatal and postnatal care with the help of the community midwife. She is also able to offer pre-conception advice.
Practice Nurse Clinics
The practice nurses are based in the surgery and can be seen by appointment. They provide a wide range of treatments including:
If you’re a smoker, giving up is the single most valuable step you can take to improve your health. It can improve your lifestyle and finances too!
Please book an appointment with one of our practice nurses to discuss quitting smoking. The NHS can help you to quit using a variety of support tools.
When you go smoke free, you are up to four times more likely to succeed if you use NHS support and stop smoking medicines such as patches or gum to manage your cravings.

ZIKA VIRUS - Information from NHS Choices
People travelling to affected areas should seek travel health advice before their trip. You can use this AZ guide to check if the country you are visiting has a high risk, medium risk or low risk for Zika virus transmission.
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.
During your consultation your doctor will advise you when they expect any test results to be available. They will also advise you whether or not you need to phone in for your results. If they ask you to do this please phone and speak to a receptionist after 10 am.
We will only give results to the person who has had the test, or to the parents of minors.
