Maternity Medical Services
We have a Midwife who runs an antenatal clinic on Wednesdays by appointment only and our doctors see patients for Ante-Natal and Post-Natal appointments.
Appointments are available with the Doctor or Nurse for Family Planning and Contraception Services.
Child Health Surveillance
Child Health Surveillance is available with the doctors within set appointments.
Diabetic/Heart/Respiratory/Healthy Weight Management Clinics are run by the Practice Nurses to monitor patients regularly.
We strongly recommend that you take the opportunity to have a flu vaccination. Clinic details are advertised within the surgrey during the flu season (september - march) or you can make an appointment through reception.
Flu can be an unpleasant illness even for the fittest person; those that have certain chronic diseases are at greater risk of more severe illness and even life-threatening complications. These include people with diabetes, heart or lung disease, kidney or liver disease, diseases affecting the nervous system such as MS or cerebral palsy and those who may be immunocompromised.
Flu vaccination is safe and effective and reduces the risk of complications from flu not just for the over 65s but also for teenagers, children and younger adults with these health conditions.
Pregnant women are at greater risk of the more severe and even life-threatening complications.
Flu vaccination is safe and effective at any stage of pregnancy. It reduces the risk of complications from flu for the mother and baby with benefits continuing through the first few months of life for the newborn baby.
The vaccination does not include a live virus and so cannot give you flu. Some people get a sore arm or can have a fever during the 24 to 48 hours after receiving the vaccine. Other side effects are rare. Overall the small risk of side effects is hugely outweighed by the protection offered by this vaccine. We would be very happy to discuss any questions that you have that may have acted as a barrier to your receiving this protection.
