Clinics & Services
We recommend flu and pneumonia vaccinations as advised by the Department of Health and for patients who suffer from a long term chronic condition.
The injectable flu vaccine will continue to be offered to those aged 65 and over, pregnant women, carers and adults and babies (aged six months to two years) with a long-term medical condition.
The nasal spray flu vaccine is also for children aged two to 17 who are "at risk" from flu, such as children with long-term health conditions. Some of these children will be offered two doses of the vaccine.
Please contact the surgery for advice.
Antenatal clinics are run by the midwife to monitor your health through pregnancy, and the development of your unborn baby. Appointments for the antenatal clinic should be made through reception.
Asthma checks are carried out by the practice nurses to monitor your condition, and provide you with advice.
It is very important for all women within the age range advised by the Department of Health to have a regular cervical smear test for which they will receive a recall letter. The practice nurse usually carries out the test.
Child Health & Vaccinations
Childhood vaccinations are advised and provided in line with current advice from the Department of Health.
Guidance about the range of contraceptive services is available in all the surgeries. Emergency contraception is available from your doctor or pharmacist.
Diabetic checks are carried out by the practice nurses for assessment on all aspects of your diabetic care including blood sugar measurement, urine testing, blood pressure measurement and advice on diet and foot care.
The doctors carry out a range of minor surgical procedures and will advise you when this is appropriate.
Other clinics include smoking, COPD, hypertension, heart disease, postnatal care and baby clinics. We offer many in house services including ECG, blood tests, and blood pressure monitoring.
