Normal appointments for blood tests are from 8am - 5pm Monday to Thursday and 8am to 2.00pm on Friday, subject to HCA availability.
We are sorry we cannot offer late Friday afternoon appointments for blood tests as the blood samples are collected from the Surgery at 2.30pm and most samples cannot be stored overnight.
Post Natal and Baby Clinic: We have developed the MAMA Clinic (Maternity and Mums Advice Clinic), which is held every Thursday morning. A GP and Nurse will be available during the clinics. The clinic means that Post Natal Checks (carried out when your baby is approximately 8 weeks old), will take place along with your childs first immunisation. The MAMA clinic has been designed to reduce the number of visits you and your baby are erquired to make to the practice.
Family planning appointments can be arranged with a GP or Practice Nurse. We provide advice on safe sex and the full range of contraceptive options, including emergency contraception.
Please do not be embarrassed to contact the surgery should you find yourself in need of emergency contraception advice or help. For information; it is important to inform you that the "morning after" pill must be taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse (the earlier the better) or an Intra Uterine Contraceptive Device (lUCD/coil) can be fitted within five days and can be left in place.
Please ask for an urgent appointment with either a Practice Nurse or a GP if you require either of these services.
We feel it is also important to see a doctor or nurse for family planning advice after taking emergency contraception so you will be advised to make an appointment to arrange a method of regular contraception.
