pregnant1All the doctors provide maternity and contraceptive services which are available during normal surgery hours. If you are pregnant, your first antenatal appointment is due 8 to 10 weeks after the first day of your last period.

Please tell the receptionist when you make this appointment that it is for antenatal care. This is shared with the community midwives who will also give you information about parentcraft classes, breast feeding and maternity benefits.

Minor surgery

This is performed by Dr Omid Yousefi with the help of our practice nurses.

 

Childhood Immunisations

Dr Ann Bolitho-Jones has a “baby clinic” on Tuesdays from 2 to 3pm. Our practice nurses will soon be offering this service as well.

The current schedule protects children against ten diseases that used to be common in this country and were often fatal or permanently disabling. Present vaccines are safe and are getting safer all the time. It is very rare for there to be good medical reasons to omit part or all of the schedule. By immunising your child you will be protecting not only your child but indirectly other children in the community.

Children’s immunisations are performed at the Surgery. Simply make an appointment in the usual way, telling the receptionist it is for an immunisation injection.

 

 

 

Cervical smears

All women who are, or who have been, sexually active should have a cervical smear every 3 years from the age of 25 to 50. Thereafter the recommended interval is 5 years until the age of 65. This painless procedure can detect early changes at the neck of the womb, these can then be treated before they develop into cervical cancer.

Breast screening

Mammography is offered to all women aged 50 to 65 every three years by the local health authority. However if you discover a breast lump at any time you should consult your doctor as soon as possible.

Medical Examinations for non NHS purposes such as insurance, HGV licences etc can be performed outside surgery hours. There is usually a charge for these services.

 

Travel vaccines

Do not leave these to the last minute. Ideally discuss your requirements with our practice nurse two months before you travel. Don’t forget anti-malarial tablets if you need them. These can be bought at the local chemist.

Influenza immunisation

This is recommended annually for the elderly, those with chest problems, heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease and those on immunosuppressive therapy (including long term oral steroids) The vaccine is usually available from late September and we will be running dedicated clinics for this. Please ask at reception.
