Below is a list of our services, this list changes from time to time so please contact reception if you need any specific information.
The Antenatal Clinics are run by Midwives and are held on Mondays & Thursdays. If you are pregnant please phone reception and they will book you in to see the doctor. After this your appointments will all be arranged by and be with the midwife.
Post Natal Care
Your baby will receive a 6 week check with one of our doctors.
Child Vaccination Clinic
These clinics are held on Tuesday afternoons from 2.00 pm to 4.30 pm. Appointments are sent out by post by the Child Health Service in Leicester. If you struggle to make these times please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you elsewhere.
We have several Practice Therapists who visit our surgery each week. Appointments with them are given after referral by our doctors.
Some of our doctors undertake minor surgery procedures such as specialist joint injections or mole removal. The doctor will discuss any of these procedures with you and then refer you into one of our clinics if required.
For the treatment and removal of warts and some moles – these clinics are held in the afternoons periodically throughout the month. You must be referred by a doctor to one of these clinics. We do not routinely treat verrucae in this clinic as over the counter treatments have been proven to be just as effective and so we recommend patients use these.
Long Term Conditions Clinics
By long term conditions we mean Asthma, Diabetes, Heart Disease, COPD (a condition similar to Asthma affecting the lungs) and patients who’re living with the after effects of strokes.
These clinics are run by the Practice Nurses. We will write to you approximately once a year when your review is due. We are starting to bring these reviews in line with your month of birth. If you have more than one condition we will try and book them all at the same time, but please mention this when booking to help our receptionists. For many conditions a blood test is needed and this should be done at least 2 weeks prior to your clinic review. This allows time for the results to come back and these will be given to you by the nurse at the review.
NHS Health Checks
These are available to all patients aged between 40 and 75 every 5 years. They start with a blood test followed by a telephone appointment to discuss your blood test results and your lifestyle and diet. The nurse will then give you advice about your future likelihood of getting heart disease or diabetes.
All ladies between the ages of 25 to 45 are advised to have three-yearly smears. Over 45’s are advised to have one every five years. You will be sent an invite by the health authority and should not ask for a smear unless you have had an invite. Please make an appointment with the Practice Nurse for your smear.
All our Practice Nurses and Doctors can give advice. We fit long acting contraceptives such as the coil and the implant here at the surgery as well as doing contraceptive injections and prescribing the contraceptive pill.
Contraceptive Coil and Contraceptive Implant fitting clinics
We have doctors who can fit the coil and the implant. You will need to have a discussion with the GP prior to booking into a clinic for this. We undertake emergency coil fits as well as routine ones.
Travel Advice and Immunisation Clinic
Our Practice Nurses can give advice and vaccinations for patients travelling abroad.
Please complete one of our forms which you can obtain from reception. Your form will be reviewed and then we will telephone you to advise if you need an appointment for travel vaccinations.
Some services may involve information sharing with other agencies. This will only happen in line with the Data Protection law.
