Services We Provide
Asthma & Spirometry
We have clinicians at each surgery who have an interest in Asthma and COPD (smoker's asthma). Regular monitoring of asthmatics is recommended and you are advised to make an appointment with one of these clinicians where possible. Additionally, we have a nurse who can perform an asthma review for you.
Child Immunisation clinics are held regularly. You will receive a letter from the hospital with an invite to this clinic. You will need to call the surgery to make an appointment.
All children are checked regularly during their first five years of life. This will be done by the Health Visitor. You will either be contacted by the health visitor or sent an appointment to attend one of the 4 clinics held in various children clinics around the city.
We have Nurses and Health Care Assistants who can check your blood pressure in a 5 minute appointment. Additionally we have a blood pressure machine in our downstairs waiting area for patients to use themselves. A member of our reception team will be happy to assist. It is important that our patients whose blood pressure is poorly controlled have regular checks, providing comprehensive screening, advice and relevant medication.
Are You A Carer?
If you provide unpaid help or support to a relative, partner, friend or neighbour who could not manage without you, then you are a carer.
This service is available at all sites. Women considering a coil need to see a GP initially to confirm suitability. It is then important to have some routine swabs 2 weeks before the fitting.
Regular clinics for the treatment of superficial skin problems using specialised freezing techniques. Appointments for the Cryology clinic should be made after an initial consultation with one of the doctors.
All diabetics who are not regularly monitored at the hospital will be invited to attend this clinic on a regular basis. Progress is carefully monitored to reduce the long term risks associated with diabetes, such as heart disease and deteriorating eyesight.

This clinic is by invitation letter or GP/nurse referral. Primarily it deals with cholesterol levels but involves assessing risk of heart disease and giving lifestyle advice as well as monitoring treatment.
The Surgery has a well equipped treatment room and some of the Partners are trained in a range of minor surgical procedures. Appointments for a minor operation should only be made after an initial consultation with one of the doctors.
This service is available at all surgeries. Women considering an Nexplanon need to see a GP initially to discuss suitability. This can then be performed in a minor operation appointment (30 mins).
Non NHS work
For all Non-NHS work please contact Tina in the Admin team who will be pleased to help. Tina may be contacted through any of our reception teams. Please note that such work will require pre-payment. This decision was made regrettably as in the past some patients have failed to pay when the work was completed before payment.
POWOW - our group for Partners or Widows or Widowers
We would like to invite you to our POWOW coffee mornings, held on the first Thursday of every month between 10am and 12 noon at St Thomas's Church.
Our smoking cessation service has a quit rate of 80% - that means that 4 out of every 5 people who attend the service manage to quit.
If you wish to stop smoking, the Practice Nurses are available to offer advice. Your first appointment will need to be 20 minutes so that we can discuss your reasons for wanting to quit, how we can support you and we will also do some test and give you some information. We can also discuss whether you feel 1:1 support or a group environment would be best for you.
