We offer a wide selection of clinics. Click on the name of the clinic to read more information…

Diabetic Clinic

Diabetic Clinic

We are trained to offer advanced diabetic care including many of the services traditionally provided in hospital clinics.

The clinics are run by a mixture of GPs, practice nurses and nurse specialists.

Not only do we provide all the nationally recommended screening to try and prevent complications but we also teach how to inject insulin and other modern injectable drugs. We can manage switches from different treatment regimes to try and give our patients the best possible personalized care.

Minor Injuries

Minor Injuries

Our GPs and nurses are trained to assess and treat minor injuries.

We can manage cuts, lacerations and sprains, assess possible fractures and treat minor head injuries.

This service operates between 8am and 6:30pm at either surgery and is open to both registered and non-registered patients.

Anticoagulant Clinic

Anticoagulant Clinic

We provide monitoring of all blood thinning medications.

Warfarin is managed with point of care testing using a device which gives clinicians an immediate test result. We give each patient a daily dosage chart, allowing for safe and efficient care.

Child Health

Child Health

We have fortnightly child health clinics managed by doctors, practice nurses and health visitors.

These are for routine health checks of babies and children, immunisations and for non-urgent child health concerns.

Medicals

Medicals

If you need a medical for driving (HGV, bus or taxi), insurance purposes or recreational pursuits then our reception staff can book this for you.

These are not covered on the NHS and a fee is charged for this service – reception staff will let you know the cost at the time of booking.

We can only accept cash or cheque payment.

Ear Care

Ear Care

If your ears are blocked with wax our clinicians have been trained in the use of both ear irrigation and microsuction.

Irrigation uses warm water to clear the wax and microsuction uses direct vision to safely suck the wax out of your ear. You may choose either procedure and your nurse or doctor can give you further advice on this if needed.

Contraception

Contraception

We provide all methods of contraception including pills, patches, injections, implants and coils. Please make an appointment with a GP or advanced nurse practitioner to discuss this.

Emergency contraception is available and may be prescribed over the phone if appropriate.

When we are closed you can also get emergency contraception from chemists or from the out of hours service.

Travel

Travel

If you are travelling abroad we can provide advice on immunisations and malaria prevention. Vaccines and tablets for malaria prevention are not available on the NHS so a charge is made for these.

Please book all travel immunisations at least SIX weeks in advance. We have to order them in specially and some need time to take effect.  We do not provide yellow fever vaccination.
