These appointments will be with the Practice Nurse. (If you are unable to attend the surgery for these checks because of your medical condition a home visit may be arranged.)
We provide advice, counselling and a range of contraceptive services including emergency contraception, pill checks, coils and implants.
Maternity care is provided by all the doctors and this is usually shared between your GP and the community midwife. We offer free pregnancy tests for teenagers and some local pharmacies will also offer to do the test for you. As soon as you know you are pregnant please make an appointment to see your doctor. This early appointment gives you an opportunity to discuss your hopes and fears and to plan the care you would like to receive. The community midwives are happy to support most women who want a home birth.
Child Health Clinic
The Child Health Clinic is held on Wednesdays from 14:00 – 15:00 when the nurses will give the full range of childhood immunisations. Immunisations for older children are provided by appointment with the practice nurse.
Adult and holiday immunisations are given by the practice nurses by appointment. If you are intending to go abroad it is advisable to make an appointment to see the nurse two to three months in advance to discuss the requirements. The nurse stocks a full range of holiday vaccinations and will give you all the necessary information. Some vaccinations, not covered by the NHS, require a fee.
Dr Dirmikis runs a cryotherapy clinic once every 2 months on a Tuesday afternoon. If you think that you need this service please make an appointment with your own doctor first to discuss this.
