You may make an appointment to see our practice nurse at either surgery.
The Practice Nurse clinics cover travel vaccinations, ear syringing, immunisations, dressings, wound and ulcer management, smears and contraceptive advice. This list is not exhaustive, and some appointments need to be arranged with a specialised Nurse; if you are unsure who you need to see, please ask a receptionist who will be happy to advise.
Please make an appointment as soon as you know your travel dates - don't leave it until the last minute or you put yourself at risk.
Phlebotomy - Blood Test
A phlebotomy clinic is held everyday by our Healthcare Assistants.
These are run at both ends of the practice by appointment with the nurse.
Patients requiring medicals will usually be seen outside surgery hours so please mention the nature of the medical when booking. You may be asked for a deposit towards the cost of medical in advance of your appointment.
Minor surgical procedures under local anaesthetics are performed in the surgery by appointment.
This is run at both surgeries by appointment with the nurse.
Antenatal clinics are run at both surgeries by the community midwife. The doctors see antenatal patients in their normal surgeries. Postnatal appointments take longer than usual and you should mention this when making an appointment.
Baby immunisations are undertaken by the Practice Nurse during her routine clinics.
The practice has a full compliment of community staff such as district nurses, health visitors and midwife.
The district nurse can be contacted directly by an answering machine on 01522 685786. Messages are collected regularly during the day. This service is designed for rountine messages and not an emergency service.
