CLINICS AND SERVICES
Advanced Nurse Practitioner Clinics
Our advanced nurse practitioners are highly qualified and experienced in managing and prescribing for a wide variety of health concerns and offer an invaluable service to patients of this practice.
Chronic Disease Management
If you have a condition that requires to be monitored annually, the practice will contact you. We aim to complete these reviews in your birthday month, however, if you have not heard from us, please telephone and make your appointment. We may have to book more than one appointment depending on the conditions you have.
In order to save a lengthy delay in waiting for hospital appointments, we offer a minor surgery service.
We are fortunate in having a practice-based, non-dispensing pharmacist who works closely with the clinical and administrative staff. The pharmacist advises on all prescribing issues and matters relating to public health and liaises with the community pharmacists, hospital departments and the Primary Care Trust.
Patient Interpreting Service
We have access to an Interpreting Service by prior arrangement; please let reception know if you require an interpreter.
Family Planning Services
Our team can offer a full range of family planning services and advice. Nurses will give general advice about contraception and will arrange a prescription for the contraceptive pill. IUCD (coil) and Nexplanon insertions are carried out by appointment. If you require emergency contraception, please visit any pharmacy as soon as possible. The sooner it is taken, the more effective it is.
