Clinics & Services
Chronic Disease Clinics
There are several chronic illnesses for which we provide routine follow-up clinics.
- Asthma Clinic: Sarah Canham
- Diabetes Clinic: Sarah Jane Lewis
- Heart Disease Clinic: Sarah Canham, Sarah Jane Lewis
The doctors deal with all aspects of Family planning including barrier methods, pills, injections, implants, coils, termination counselling and sterilisation counselling.
Copper and hormone containing coils are fitted at the surgery.
Coils and Implants are fitted by Dr Steward so if you would like to discuss either of these please make an appointment to see her.
Antenatal care is shared between the doctors and our local community midwives' team (The Ivy Team). Please make an appointment with your GP as soon as your pregnancy is confirmed.
The community midwives provide antenatal appointments on Friday mornings between 10:20 and 11:40. The doctors will see you for routine antenatal check-ups during normal surgery times.
The Ivy Team can also be contacted directly by telephone on 01223 596 212.
Children's Immunisations are done by our practice nurses. There are set baby clinic appointments which will be sent to you but if the times are inconvenient you can rearrange these.

We currently are only able to offer immunisation and advice for Hepatitis A and Typhoid ONLY. Patients are advised to contact their local Travel Clinic for advice on vaccinations required for the area of the world being visited. If Hepatitis A and Typhoid is recommended, we are happy to provide these for you. We are also able to provide you with a list of previous vaccinations on request. Please ask our reception team for this information.
The practice nurse will only be able to advise on anti-malarial. Certain types of anti-malarial are available only on a private prescription for which there is a charge of £10 plus the cost of the tablets however the practice would recommend travellers attend their local Travel Clinic for this service.
Routine cervical smears are performed by the doctors and nurses at 3 year intervals between the ages of 25 and 50 and every 5 years thereafter until 64.
Additional smears may be done if there is a medical reason for them - such as bleeding between periods.
We are able to perform operations for a wide variety of minor conditions such as the removal of moles, skin cysts and the treatment of ingrowing toenails.
Usually the doctor who carries out the procedure will wish to see you in advance of the operation. If you feel that you will require minor surgery it is helpful if you discuss this with the receptionist so that they can book you in with the appropriate doctor.
The surgery can loan blood pressure machines to patients who have been asked to monitor their blood pressure over the course of a week. Please ask at reception and state if you require a standard or a large cuff machine. You can collect a form for your readings from reception or you can download one here.
Please remember to return the machine when you have finished and let reception have a copy of your readings. This form can also be used with your own blood pressure machine.
