Organised in conjunction with the midwife and hospital clinics. All the doctors undertake ante-natal care by appointment at specific times during pregnancy. The surgery does not routinely test for pregnancy as self-test kits can be bought from the chemists.
Child Clinics are run by the doctors where your child can receive their 6-8 Week Check and their first set of immunisations. Subsequent immunisations are provided by our nurses in Baby Clinics. Parents with children under the age of 5 will be contacted by a Health Visitor and given an information sheet. Please do contact the surgery if you have not had your child immunised.
For further information please contact the Health Visitors.
Check-ups for contraception can be booked with any of our nurses in their Nurse Clinics or in a dedicated Family Planning clinic.
Sexual health advice and treatment is provided by our specialist sexual health nurses and doctors. Please make an appointment.

Our practice nurses carry out suture removal in their routine clinics. Please arrange appointments as required via reception.
The practice provides a counselling service which is provided by the Community Primary Care Mental Health Team (CPCMHT).
To see the counsellor you will need to be referred by your doctor who will arrange an appointment with one of our counsellors.
We offer an advice and vaccination service for travellers. It is important when you are planning to travel abroad that you make an appointment with a Practice Nurse 6 to 8 weeks before you travel. Our travel consultations are very popular and do get booked up quickly, so it is important to book early to avoid disappointment.
In order for the Nurse to carry out a full risk assessment of where you are travelling to, we ask that you complete a travel form and bring this along to your appointment with you. The form is available to download below or may be collected from reception.
Please be aware that there are charges for some travel vaccinations. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in services provided by the NHS.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
