FAMILY PLANNING CLINICS:
We offer a family planning clinic on alternate Thursdays with our Practice Nurse Lindsay Anderson, providing family planning / contraceptive advice and provision.
Our Practice Nurses are all qualified to offer advice to patients travelling abroad and to administer appropriate travel vaccinations, including Yellow Fever. Some vaccinations may be charged for.
Most of our doctors are qualified to perform minor operations in surgery. Dr. Halem is our principal lead on these procedures.
Please make an appointment in the usual way for assessment by any doctor and you will be advised if you require a further appointment for minor surgery.
Flu vaccinations are usually available between October and January by appointment. You may receive written details of an appointment, otherwise please ring to book your appointment from September onwards.
If you are a patient aged 16-74 who has not been seen for 3 years or more or you are 75 and over and have not been seen for 12 months or more, we can offer you a general health check.
Please make an appointment for this or request a home visit if you are unable to attend the surgery.
