Clinics & Services
Our nurses work in the treatment room on a daily basis from 08:30 - 18:00 Monday to Friday. Typically they deal with immunisations holiday advice, vaccinations, blood tests, dressings, removal of stitches, ear syringing, hearing tests, blood pressure checks, cervical smear tests, health promotion clinics and general advice. They are also available to offer contraceptive advice on contraceptive matters.
A medical check-up is offered to all patients between 16 and 65 who have not seen a doctor in the past three years. This will include blood pressure, urine and weight checks plus a cervical smear for females.
All patients over 65 are invited each year to attend the surgery for an Influenza jab. A basic check-up will be carried out at this appointment.
The practice is sympathetic to the use of so-called Complementary Medicines or Treatments, though in general in addition to, rather than a replacement for, modern medical care. Doctors in the practice have experience of patients benefitting from Acupuncture, Hypnotherapy, Homeopathy and Herbal medicines as well as treatment by Osteopaths and Chiropractitioners.
If you are considering using any of these or other complementary treatments do please discuss it with a doctor who will offer guidance and also ensure that the proposed treatment is appropriate and not in conflict with any medical treatment that you are receiving. They can also advise which, if any, treatments are available within the NHS.
The practice also welcomes feedback on your experience, and the results, of using any Complementary Medical Treatment.
