Antenatal clinic is midwife led and held every Thursday (all day).
If you become pregnant you will need to call the Early Pregnancy Clinic on 01639 862216 on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday. The call handler will make arrangements to book you in for your 1st appointment and all future appointments will be arranged by your midwife.
This clinic is for Type 2 Diabetics and is run by our Advanced Nurse Practitioner. Patients are advised to attend at least once a year and will be contacted via the post of their next appointment. Your letter will also contain blood test forms for you to arrange your test prior to attending the clinic.
INR Clinic is held on a Monday and Thursday. Patients who are prescribed warfarin and DOAC/NOAC medication attend to check their INR and results are available immediately. Testing is performed by our Health Care Assistants and either a GP or our Advanced Nurse Practitioner will adjust the dose of the medication before the patient leaves the surgery.
The doctors are able to perform some minor surgical procedures in our dedicated clinics, for example excising small lumps and injecting some joints with steroids. Once a GP has assessed you, you will be added to the waiting list and contacted when an appointment is available.
The practice nurses have specialist training in asthma management and can help with advice about inhalers and lifestyle.
All asthmatic patients, especially children should attend the clinic at least once a year.
For advice about travel vaccinations and healthcare whilst abroad please make a double appointment with the practice nurse. This appointment should be at least 8 weeks before your holiday as late on incomplete courses of immunisation may not offer full protection. Please be aware there is a charge for some vaccinations.
Dr Bamber will fit, check and remove coils and will insert or remove contraception implants. You will need to see her personally first at a routine appointment to discuss your requirements.
Once you receive a letter from Cervical Screening Wales informing you due for a smear test please call us and book an appointment with one of our practice nurses.
