Our practice nursing team provide a wide range of services. These include cervical smears, dressings, immunisations, blood tests, and ear syringing.

 

We hold a daily Phlebotomy clinic each morning for blood tests.  Please telephone reception to make an appointment. 

 

We request that all new patients have a health check with our nurses. They are trained to give advice on a wide range of health issues including weight problems, raised blood pressure and prevention of heart disease.

 

Each year we carry out a flu vaccination campaign. We recommend that all people suffering from heart disease, lung disease (including asthma), diabetes, kidney failure or those on drugs that reduce the body's resistance to infection should be immunised against influenza every year. The campaign starts in October annually. If you feel you come into one of these categories then contact us early in October to arrange your appointment.

Travel Vaccinations

Please note that currently we do not give complex travel vaccinations. If you are going away to more than ONE country you will need to contact a local travel vaccination clinic provider. If you are only going away to one country please complete the usual form. For travel vaccinations please complete and return the request form or you can collect it from reception as soon as you know you need travel vaccinations/advice. For any advice on this matter please contact us via telephone or email.

 

Immunisations
