Clinics and Services

At the surgery we run a number of clinics. Everyday we will have GP clinics as well as nurse clinics.

If you would like to request an appointment for any of our clinics and services, please visit our Consulting Room.

Please visit our Health Review and Assessment Clinic if you have been advised by the surgery to complete a health review or assessment.

Chronic disease

At the surgery each of our nurses specialise in different chronic diseases.

Phlebotomy clinic

We run phlebotomy (blood) clinics at the surgery every day.

They are not drop in clinics and you will need to book an appointment.

NHS health checks

The NHS health check is a health check up for adults in England aged 40-74. It’s designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS health check helps find ways to lower this risk.

Child immunisations and vaccination

Travel immunisations

Providing travel immunisations is not part of standard NHS services. However, practices do provide routine immunisations, which coincidentally may also be required when travelling abroad, these are:

  • Tetanus/Diphtheria/Polio
  • Cholera
  • Typhoid
  • Hepatitis A

We can undertake the above vaccines in preparation for your travel plans on the proviso that you have previously had a travel consultation. We are not able to give these without you having a detailed consultation as they may not all be necessary or may leave you without suitable cover.

If you are travelling abroad, you should contact a travel clinic to book a consultation at least 6 weeks before departure. Consultations are not done at the surgery. They are privately run and therefore are chargeable. A consultation with a travel clinic will give you information on what vaccines you need for the area you are travelling to.

There are a number of locations around the city who run specialist travel clinics for example:

Sexual health

We are now able to register those aged between 13 and 24 for a C-Card (free condoms) and issue chlamydia screening kits for home use. We can also issue the contraceptive pill and emergency contraception. However, if you need sexual health screening or would like information regarding IUDs or other contraception methods, you would need to visit the sexual health clinic (iCaSH).

If you have been advised by the surgery to do so, please submit a Contraceptive Pill Review form.

The NHS no longer offer free pregnancy tests at the surgery. These will need to be purchased.
