It is recommended that al women between ages 25 – 65 (except most of those who have had a hysterectomy) should have a smear test. Please make an appointment with a practice nurse. Please also bring a specimen of urine.
Diabetes, Asthma, Heart Disease and High Blood Pressure
If you suffer from any of these conditions we like to monitor your health at regular intervals. It also gives us an opportunity to suggest changes in treatment. You are invited to make an appointment with one of our Doctors
or our practice nurses
who have specialist training in these areas.
Family Planning & Contraception
The practice has trained family planning nurses. Doctors and nurses can give advice on all aspects of family planning including the fitting of caps, coils and implants.
On Thursday afternoons the Surgery provides a Women's Health / Family planning clinic. This is run by Dr Henrietta Williams from 2.30pm - 4.30pm. To book an appointment please contact reception.
Immunisation of Children
The practice nurses run a clinic for baby/child immunisations each Wednesday afternoon, by appointment only. Immunisations may be arranged at other times if more convenient.
Please make an appointment for assessment with Dr Mark Free, who will suggest the appropriate treatment.
For more information and advice on Minor Illnesses please visit the NHS Choices website.
"Stop Smoking" Advice
The practice provides access to a smoking cessation service.
We generally need to be advised six weeks before you travel, so that we can put together individual health travel plans for you, which may include immunisations.
A Travel Form needs to be completed and returned to the surgery before your appointment with the Practice Nurse - this helps us to tailor your vaccinations and advice to your destination and nature of travel.
Most travel injections must be given at least two weeks before you travel for them to become effective.
Thank you for your co-operation.

The practice has a policy of charging for such services which include medical examinations, completion of forms for private insurance and private certificates.
