Clinics and Services
We provide a full general practice service and offer patients specialist advice and support in the following areas:
New Patient Health Checks
The practice nurse on request will give all new patients a health check. This can give the doctors an insight into your medical background, pending receipt of your full notes which will be forwarded to us automatically by the Health Authority. If taking repeat medication at the time of registration it is advisable to have your check soon after registering.
Family Planning Advice
The doctors and practice nurse offer pre conception and contraceptive advice, treatment and monitoring within their routine surgeries.
The community midwife works as part of a team with our doctors to provide full maternity services from pre-conceptual care through to pregnancy, labour to postnatal care. The midwife and doctors liaise closely. Antenatal care is provided by our midwife who sees patients every Tuesday between 14:00 – 16:00.
Cervical Smear Screening
It is recommended that women aged 25 – 49 years have a smear every 3 years and women between 50 – 64 years have a smear every 5 years. We will notify you when your smear is due. The ideal time to have your smear is mid-cycle but if this is inconvenient you may come to have your smear at any time that you are not menstruating.
An appointment should be made with the practice nurse on a Monday, Thursday or Friday.
