Clinics & Services
All the doctors are qualified to provide a full range of contraceptive services which are available free of charge at an ordinary appointment. This includes emergency morning after pill. We also provide a coil fitting clinic once a month with Dr Stevens. Please ask at reception for more details or to make an appointment.
Cervical Smear Tests
Smear tests for women involve examination of the cervix (neck of the womb) to check for changes which can occur. This test is usually done mid-cycle by the Practice Nurse. We recommend that all women aged between 25 and 64 years have a smear taken every three years.
The computer recall system should ensure that all eligible women receive a reminder when they are due for a smear. Please respond promptly to avoid unnecessary administration. You will be notified by the William Harvey Hospital Laboratory of your result directly to your home address.
Child Health / Immunisation Clinics
We currently hold a Baby Clinic on a Thursday morning with a GP and Practice Nurse. Appointments are generated and sent out to all babies and children.
Babies who are unwell should not come to the Clinic but should be seen by their own doctor in surgery.
Dr Karthik carries out joint injections and minor surgery. Please ask at Reception for an appointment for these services.
Each patient with asthma is invited to have an annual review with our Practice Nurse. Please contact Reception regarding times for this clinic.
