Amongst our many services we offer:

Full pregnancy care is available at the surgery. In nearly all cases the doctors and midwife will carry out the majority of your antenatal care in the practice with just two or three visits to the hospital clinic.
Asthmatic patients are encouraged to attend this clinic at least annually to monitor their condition and to ensure compliance and understanding of their medication.
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit an annual review of your asthma symptoms, please complete our Asthma Review form.

All the doctors offer contraceptive advice at routine appointments. We also offer a coil fitting service and emergency contraception service.
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit a contraceptive pill review, please complete our Contraceptive Pill Review form.
We offer all women between the ages of 25 and 65 the opportunity to have a cervical smear test every 3 to 5 years to help detect any cell changes in the cervix which could possibly develop into cancer.
To avoid having to attend hospital, we are pleased to be able to offer an in-house minor surgery service for procedures such as in-growing toenails, removal of lumps and bumps, joint injections, gynaecology procedures such as coil fittings, and endometrial biopsies.
