The practice has a policy of routinely repeating cervical smears every five or three years. Women will receive a letter of invitation from the regional cytology department or they can ask at the surgery for further information.
Our nurse provides sessions for smears, which you may choose to attend. Alternatively, you may wish to make an appointment with your doctor.
Well Baby Clinics
These are held on Friday mornings 09:00 – 11:00, by appointment only, for vaccination and development checks. Their purpose is to ensure the normal growth and development of children and to vaccinate them.
As babies attending are not ill it is unfair to bring a sick child.
If you miss an appointment and need to reschedule, please do not hesitate to ring the surgery.
The Health Centre Treatment Room is open between 09:00 – 17:15. You may be asked to attend at a particular time due to the nature of the test / treatment required.
If you are a carer and require any information or access to services, please make an appointment to see your GP
