Bowel Screening

Bowel Screening is offered screening every 2 years to all men and women aged 60 to 74.

 

Ante-Natal Clinic

If you are thinking of becoming, or already are pregnant, start taking folic acid. If a home pregnancy test is positive, you can register with the midwife without seeing a doctor. Please contact reception and they will pass your details onto the midwife, and the midwife will contact you. The object of the care provided is to maintain the health of mother and baby throughout the pregnancy. Regular attendance is therefore essential. The midwife will invite you to relaxation and mothercraft classes. The classes are to help you understand your pregnancy, labour and how to look after your baby.

 

Postnatal Checks

This is an important routine check following the birth of your child. It is done six weeks after delivery.

 

Travel Advice / Vaccinations

Our practice nurses are available by appointment to offer medical advice regarding travel and vaccinations where appropriate. Do plan ahead – don’t leave your vaccinations until the last minute.

 

Child Surveillance Clinics

These are held at both surgeries. Services include developmental checks and routine immunisation. If your child is suffering from a medical problem, please make an appointment with the doctor rather than bringing the child to the child surveillance clinic.

We believe that it is essential that the recommended programme of childhood immunisation is fully completed.
