Clinics & Services
The community midwife attends the antenatal clinic in our practice every Wednesday morning (09:30 - 12:00) and does home visits as necessary. The doctors also see antenatal patients during normal surgery hours. If you think you may be pregnant please see the doctor first at a routine appointment. Further antenatal care will then be arranged.
Postnatal examinations should be carried out six weeks after the birth. Appointments can either be arranged during the Thursday afternoon baby clinic at the same time as the six week baby check, or during normal surgery hours.
Child Care Clinic
A well baby and immunisation clinic is held every Thursday afternoon between 14:00 and 15.30 by the doctor and health visitor. An appointment is necessary for immunisations with the nurse and for six-week baby checks with the doctor. No appointment is necessary to see the health visitor during this clinic.
It is very important that you visit Dr Kumar on an annual basis for a full review of your condition and review of your medication. This appointment can be booked at reception. We also have a our Practice Nurse Stella, who specialises in diabetes care.
Contraceptive care is provided by all the doctors during surgery hours. For coils please see Dr Paul by appointment.
Minor Surgery/Joint Injections
Dr Paul and Dr Kumar perform minor operations at the surgery by appointment. The doctors will be happy to advise you on this, prior to a minor surgery appointment.
The doctors are happy to carry out medicals eg insurance and driving licence, by appointment outside surgery hours. Please telephone the surgery for an appointment. Please ask at reception for the charges for these services.
A trained counsellor is available for counselling. Please ask your doctor for a referral.
Patients Over 75 Years
If you are aged 75 years or over, you should be seen annually, either by your doctor, the practice nurse, district nurse or health visitor. This can be arranged at the surgery or, if that is not possible, a home visit will be arranged.
Please contact reception who will take all the details of the vaccinations you need and pass to our team of nurses, who will then arrange an appointment.
Please make an appointment at least eight weeks in advance of your holiday to ensure adequate cover. A charge will be made for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS. A list of these charges is held at reception.
