Clinics & Services

Counselling Services

Patients can self-refer to Talking Therapies 0191 283 2937

Acute Care Team

Patients can self-refer 07909975364.  They will respond quickly to calls to provide assessment and treatment for urgent problems including “flare-ups” of existing chronic diseases.  Often for patients unable to attend the surgery

Childhood Immunisations

It is important that children are fully immunised and, thanks to immunisation, illnesses such as measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus and polio are now rare.  Whooping cough is a distressing illness and is also preventable. HIB and meningitis C immunisation protects against two forms of meningitis in childhood.   The practice strongly encourages parents and guardians to vaccinate their children.

Cervical Smears

These are always carried out either by one of the female doctors or by a qualified nurse.    We have a Well Woman Clinic every Tuesday afternoon.

Contraception

We offer a full contraception service including the contraceptive pill,   Depo  Provera injection, coils and Implanon (a contraceptive implant that lasts for three years) and emergency contraception (“morning after” pill).

Chronic Disease Clinics

These are run by our experienced Practice Nurses,  We aim to offer a full assessment of your chronic disease on a yearly basis.

Housebound

All our housebound patients are offered structured care in their home setting with a face time consultation, where appropriate with the GP

Older Population Service

Patients are brought into the surgery  by minibus for a 2 hour consultation to see practice nurse; doctor and Age UK Adviser—see our website or leaflet for more information

Health Promotion including Smoking Cessation

We are committed to reducing the number of patients suffering from heart disease and strokes. It is important therefore that we detect those most at risk. One way we can do this  is  to record blood pressure, height, waist circumference, weight, alcohol and tobacco habits and family history of all our patients between the ages of 16 and 74. If you have not seen a doctor for three years or more, please make an appointment to see the nurse to have a health check.

Osteoporosis

We offer routine screening for all patients aged 65+. Osteoporosis can be a debilitating disease and by identifying the risk and commencing treatment, this disease can be prevented and treated.

Minor Surgery

We have facilities for removing benign lumps and bumps which would normally be done at hospital. Please make a routine appointment first with the doctor for assessment.
