Our Doctors can offer the following clinics:-
If you think you are pregnant, see your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor will then arrange for your further antenatal care. Clinics are held by appointment and in conjunction with the community midwife.
Asthma and Respiratory Disease
Our doctors would like to see all patients with Asthma and other respiratory diseases annually for a review in order for them to do a necessary check up as well as give possible advice.
Doctors and health visitors run these clinics to ensure your baby’s growth and well-being. The first visit is usually 6 weeks after the birth for mother and baby.
Our nurses run a diabetes clinic on a regular basis, but annually you will be invited to see a doctor for a review, consisting of a basic examination, tests and possible advice. Dr. Rogers is specialised in diabetes.
Family Planning & Contraception
All our doctors can advise you on family planning issues, pre-conception care and contraception. Contraception can be discussed, finding the solution most fitted to your situation. Coils can be fitted by arrangement.
The emergency contraception pill (morning after pill) can be prescribed by all doctors. It is vital though, that you come into the surgery within 72 hours.
Heart Disease Clinic
This clinic is meant for people aged 35 to 75 who have had or are at high risk of vascular diseases, for example angina, heart attack, stroke, blockage of leg arteries and related illnesses.
Patients are invited to come in annually for a review, including a basic examination, some tests and possible advice.
Minor Operations Clinics
Some of our doctors have specialised in the field of minor operations. Therefore the surgery can offer the patient a number of these minor surgical procedures to be carried out at the surgery under local anaesthetic, avoiding the need to go to hospital. We also perform freezing operations for the removal of pre-malignant lesions. Patients should attend normal surgery for a doctor to assess the suitability for these procedures.
The doctor will then arrange for an appointment if the patient consents.
The surgery will try to contact you after the birth of your baby for a doctor’s visit to ensure your new baby’s health and well-being.
For patients suffering with joint problems, some of our doctors can, on indication, inject the large joints. Patients should attend normal surgery for a doctor to assess the suitability for this procedure. The doctor will then arrange for an appointment if the patient consents.
Please ask reception for the names of the doctors performing this procedure.
Warfarin Monitoring aims to stabilise the INR (International Normalised Ratio) within set limits to help prevent serious side-effects while maximising effective treatment. The doctor will do this by doing regular blood tests to monitor Warfarin control.
