Family Planning Services
All our doctors are able to offer confidential advice during normal surgery hours on all aspects of contraception.
Child Health Surveillance
Dr Morag Sloan and Janet Norris provide child screening for the practice. Clinics are held on Thursdays and all children receive regular assessments by both doctor and health visitor. Children will normally be invited for assessment at eight weeks, seven to nine months, eighteen months (health visitor only) and three years. Please bring your child’s record book when you attend.
An eyesight test is performed by the orthoptic clinic at three years. It is important that all infants and children are protected from potentially fatal diseases and we recommend all immunisations be given.
Minor Surgery Services
All our GP partners are registered to undertake minor surgical procedures, for example removal of lumps and cysts, or joint injections. The clinic is held once a month and appointments for minor surgery are made after a consultation with a doctor.
It is recommended that people between the ages of 40-74 years should be assessed for their risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
