Our Clinics

Contraception

All the doctors provide a family planning service during normal surgery appointments. An appointment can be made with the Practice Nurse for family planning advice and pill checks. Fitting of coils should be discussed with Dr Hamling, Dr Ezobi, Dr Quiggin (all female) or one of the Practice Nurses prior to making an appointment.

Requests for emergency contraception will be seen promptly.

Immunisations

A full range of immunisations are carried out in the Practice, including childhood immunisations and travel vaccinations, tetanus and influenza immunisation and meningitis C vaccinations for young people.

The Practice Nurses have Childhood Immunisation clinics on alternate Monday and Wednesday mornings. These clinics are by appointment only.

Long Term Conditions

Patients with long term conditions such as asthma, COPD and diabetes are invited to attend important regular checks which help to ensure the best up to date and appropriate treatment is being given. For annual reviews you will be invited in during the month of your birth.

Maternity Care

After initial booking with the doctor the midwife attached to the practice will contact you to arrange your booking. This may be done at home or in the surgery. At the booking appointment the midwife will plan your care throughout your pregnancy, birth and aftercare.

Midwife clinics are held at the surgery on Tuesdays each week and they can be contacted on 01225 824669.

After your baby has been born, an appointment will be sent to you for your baby’s 6-week check and your own postnatal check. The midwives will visit you at home as necessary, usually up until 10 days. Please ensure your discharge summary is handed in to the Practice.
