Cervical Screening

This is provided by appointment with the practice nurses.

Child Health Surveillance

You will be invited for a 6-8 week baby check. This appointment will include a post natal check for mum.

Childhood Immunisations

Parents/guardians of children will receive notifications via the local Community Health Services when immunisations are due. We strongly advise that your child has all the recommended vaccinations to prevent these serious diseases. Each vaccination is given as a single injection into the muscle of the thigh or upper arm.

Why should I immunise my child?
Immunisation is a way of protecting your child against serious disease. Once children have been immunised their bodies can fight those diseases if they come into contact with them.

If a child is not immunised they will be at risk from catching the disease and will rely on other people immunising their children to avoid becoming infected. However, if more people choose not to immunise their children, then the number of children at risk of catching a disease will increase and outbreaks of the disease will occur.

The recommended NHS vaccination schedule gives children the best chance of developing immunity against these diseases in a safe and effective way and minimises their risk of catching the diseases.

Further reading
There are some excellent websites that will answer all your questions and queries about immunisation and vaccination.

The NHS website contains a comprehensive, up-to-date and accurate source of information on vaccines, disease and immunisation in the UK.

Maternity Services

All the doctors provide maternity services and work with the community midwives. The midwives connected to our surgery are Caroline Thomas and Tracy Taylor-Ciano.

Most antenatal follow-up is provided by our midwives and they hold clinics here at the surgery. You can also make an appointment to see your doctor during ordinary surgery hours.

The midwife will give you contact numbers should you need to speak to them or you can reach their team office on 01903 285 269.

Minor Surgery

The doctors can arrange for minor surgical procedures and joint injections to be carried out in the surgery. Your doctor will advise you about this.

Vaccination and Immunisations

Children: Your children will normally be called automatically for their routine vaccinations. We strongly advise that they have all the recommended vaccinations so that they are fully protected against diseases such as meningitis, measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, polio and whooping cough. Vaccinations can be arranged at other times if your child has missed any injections.

Adults: We recommend you keep up to date with your tetanus and polio boosters. We also recommend that all adults over 65, or who suffer from asthma, lung disease, heart disease or diabetes, have a flu jab every autumn. Certain people may also be advised to have a pneumonia vaccination as well.
