Maternity Care / Antenatal
Our midwifery team manage your care on behalf of your doctor. However, after you have had your baby you will need a postnatal check between six and eight weeks.
Child Development and Immunisation
All doctors in the practice provide child health facilities and developmental checks. These are usually done during normal surgery appointments. Some checks will be carried out by the Health Visitors.
It is very important that all children and babies are fully immunised. We have a baby immunisation clinic on Wednesdays. An appointment will be sent to you. If you have any queries regarding the immunisation of your baby, please do not hesitate to ask our practice nurses, your doctor or health visitor.
Womans Health Clinic
If you are female and between the ages of 25 and 64 you will be called automatically by the Health Authority for screening. Women under 50 years old are called every 3 years and those over 50 every 5 years.
When you are sent a reminder please call the practice to make an appointment with the practice nurse.
We can offer help with smoking cessation for when you feel ready and able to consider stopping smoking. Please ask at Reception for details.
Your GP can refer you to a counsellor if necessary, or you can self refer.
If you require any travel vaccinations because you are travelling to another country you need to make an appointment with a practice nurse to discuss your travel requirements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required for the area.
For further information about countries and what vaccinations are required click here.
Please make this appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually administer the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as we do not stock all vaccines. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription. These will incur a charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS. For vaccine costs please call the reception team.
Travelling in Europe

Blood Tests & Results
You can book an appointment with our Heath Care Assistants who are at the Surgery every week. Appointments for blood tests may be booked up to 4 weeks ahead. Call the practice to book.
For results please call the practice in the afternoon. The receptionist will be able to tell you if any action is required based upon the doctors comments, and book an appointment if required.
