We offer the following clinics and services

Asthma

A practice nurse runs these clinics and patients with asthma are invited to attend. The nurse will help supervise your asthma and advise you on your treatment technique.

Appointments can be arranged at any time.

Cervical Smear Testing

Smear tests are conducted by our Practice Nurses, and the Cytology Department in Leicester will send you a reminder when you are next due – normally 3 yearly for women aged 25-45, and 5 yearly for those over 45, unless advised differently by your GP.

When making an appointment, please specify that it is for a smear test.

Cryotherapy / Wart Clinic

We hold regular wart clinics at the Practice where liquid nitrogen is used to ‘freeze’ suitable skin lesions. You will need to a see your doctor in the first instance before being referred to this clinic.

Dental Services

The practice nor the out of hours doctors are able to provide support or advice for dental problems since this is not our area of expertise.  For all dental problems please speak with your dentist.

Diabetes & Coronary Heart Disease (CHD)

A diabetic clinic is held every Tuesday, for those patients whose condition has stabilised and who are not required to attend the hospital outpatient clinic.

This clinic is run by a GP and a Practice Nurse, and all CHD patients will be invited to arrange an appointment with a practice nurse.

Diabetic patients and CHD patients will be referred by their doctors to this clinic for an annual screening check.

Family Planning Clinic

Family planning advice is available from the Family Planning Nurses. Please be sure to ask to see one of them for advice / support on family planning.

Minor Surgery Clinic

The Practice runs a Minor Surgery clinic every Friday morning at the practice for removal of minor skin lesions, lumps and bumps.

To be referred to this clinic you must first see either your GP or the Practice Nurse.

Travel

A travel clinic is held regularly to give advice and to arrange the necessary immunisations for those people travelling abroad. Please allow plenty of time before travelling, as some courses of injections take up to 3 months to complete.

You will need to complete a ‘travel form‘ which is obtainable at the reception desk or you can complete online; this must be completed before making an appointment with the nurse.

Please note that travel vaccinations do not form a part of General Medical Services and will normally have to be paid for prior to any programme of immunisations beginning. The reception staff will advise at the time of making any bookings.
