To ensure that you get the best treatment available, we regularly monitor the therapy of those patients with long-term conditions. We may invite you to make an appointment with your doctor or specialist nurse if changes may be appropriate. With some conditions – such as asthma and diabetes – regular checks are essential to detect changes, at least once or twice a year.
Minor surgery procedures such as joint injections and implants can be carried out at the surgery by doctors. Regular clinics for the treatment of warts are undertaken. Please enquire at reception for the next available session.
See the Doctor or Nurse at the earliest opportunity. If there are no available appointments, please ask to speak to the Practice Nurse who may be able to see you after surgery. Emergency contraception pills need to be started within seventy-two hours of unprotected sex. A coil can be fitted up to five days after unprotected sex.
Cervical screening is offered to all women between 20 and 64. Regular screening every 3-5 years is the best way to detect changes to the cervix early. Early detection and treatment can prevent cancer
Medical examinations and reports for special purposes, e.g. life insurance, driving licence approval, pre-employment, etc are not paid for by the NHS. They can be undertaken by doctors by appointment, but a fee will be charged for these services.
