Smoking Status

Over the coming weeks an organisation called Provide will be contacting a number of our patients to confirm their current smoking status, and to provide stop smoking support as appropriate.  Please be assured that this work is being undertaken on behalf of the surgery

Flu Vaccine

Please book in for your flu jabs if you are eligible.

Winter Infections

 As the weather declines we are seeing an increased number of patients with upper respiratory infections.  Almost all of these are VIRAL in nature and not BACTERIAL, and therefore ANTIBIOTICS WILL NOT HELP.

Before making an appointment to see a doctor, please try cold and flu remedies from your pharmacy, drink plenty of fluids and keep warm.  It can sometimes take a week to 10 days for symptoms to improve.  Your local pharmacist will be happy to advise and, of course do contact the surgery if symptoms worsen or you remain concerned.

If you are a patient on one of our ‘at risk’ registers, or are over the age of 65, and have not already done so, please make an appointment for your flu vaccination.

Child Development & Immunisation

These are multidisciplinary involving doctors, nurses and health visitors.

Contraceptive Services

contraceptionOur nurse-led clinic is run by Helen Wallis, and she can advise on all available methods. You should normally book into the clinic, therefore, rather than with a GP for contraceptive services.  We also provide a service for the fitting and removal of both intrauterine devices and contraceptive implants.

Coronary Heart Disease

Helen Wallis (Practice nurse) runs this clinic for those on our CHD register. It monitors all aspects of the condition from lifestyle through to medication, in liaison with the GP where necessary.

Diabetes Checks

Annual physical assessments are done by our health care assistants(HCA). Patients are invited to book appointments in the month of their birth. This is just a physical check as our HCAs are not trained to give medical advice regarding diabetes. Your care is overseen by the GP in cooperation with the hospital clinics where applicable.
