Our antenatal clinic is held on Thursdays 1.30-3.30pm. Patients are seen by the midwife at the clinic by appointment.
We carry out a number of asthma clinics at various times throughout the week. We see asthma patients on a yearly basis but if there are any changes to symptoms we request that patient's return sooner. We ask that when a patient attends for their asthma review can they please bring along any inhalers they use so that the nurse can carry out various checks i.e. in date, inhaler technique etc.
What to expect at your asthma review
A weekly immunisations clinic is run by a doctor and practice nurse for all baby/pre-school immunisations.
First immunisations are given at six to eight weeks old and the doctor will also conduct child development checks at this time.
Clinic is by appointment.
Long-term complications of diabetes are minimised or avoided by good diabetic care and control. Diabetic clinics are by appointment only and are run by our specially trained nurses. It is important that our diabetic patients attend for regular review appointments.
An influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients with heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes, over 65 years olds and residents of nursing and rest homes. Patients within these categories will receive a letter from the practice inviting them to the special flu clinic days.
Dr Aggarwal carries out minor surgical procedures by appointment and he will be happy to advise you on this.
While the majority of our over 75 year old patients are seen regularly for review of existing medical conditions, those who are not are welcome to attend annually for a health check. These are undertaken by our health care assistants.
We run a weekly welfare rights surgery, where you can discuss any problems you may have relating to claims and housing issues. Please ask at reception for an appointment.
Well baby clinics are run by health visitors who check your baby’s weight etc. and allow an opportunity to discuss other problems, e.g. sleeping, feeding and child health worries.
Our practice nurses carry out routine smears in normal surgery hours. Dr Richards and Dr Berry carry out postnatal checks during normal surgeries.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial 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 receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. 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 and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
