Family Planning

A comprehensive, confidential service including the provision of emergency contraception is available within normal surgery hours. Appointments can be made with any of the doctors or practice nurses.

Immunisations (children)

The practice encourages parents to ensure that their children are fully immunised before they reach school age. This gives maximum possible protection against a number of infectious diseases.

Immunisations (adults)

The practice offers a full range of immunisations for adults including tetanus and influenza. The annual “flu jabs” are usually given in September or October. Patients are invited to attend according to criteria such as their age and whether or not they have conditions such as diabetes or asthma. Any patients who may be unsure about whether flu immunisation is advisable are asked to contact the practice nurses who will provide advice. The practice nurses also advise patients about immunisations and health protection with regard to travelling abroad.

Antenatal and Postnatal Care

Antenatal and Postnatal clinics are held within the practice and are usually arranged through the main GP reception. The antenatal clinics are run by the midwives, and are held weekly within the practice – please contact reception for further information.

Private Services

The practice is able to provide an extensive range of private medical services to individual patients and organisations. These include: medicals, certificates, non-NHS vaccinations, employment medicals and the treatment of works injuries. If medical examinations are needed in order to obtain certificates for driving taxis or heavy goods vehicles, or to certify fitness to undertake sports or to travel, then a special appointment must be made and a fee will be payable.

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION ***

Please can we remind all patients not to contact the surgery regarding the COVID-19 or flu vaccinations for over 50’s.  We still have no further updates regarding the COVID-19 vaccine programme, nor have we been instructed to vaccinate all over 50’s who are not in the at risk category for flu.

We are still offering flu vaccinations, but only to the vulnerable and at risk groups.  If you have been invited for a flu vaccination, please give us a call to ensure you receive one.  It would be helpful if you could let us know if you do not wish to have the vaccination, this could be done through message on your Patient Access, by email or telephone.

The practice is under immense pressure, as you can imagine, so please can we ask that you do not ring the surgery with any enquiries about either of these vaccinations.  Updates will be on social media and our website.

Thank you for co-operation.
