New patient checks and well patient checks

Existing patients are encouraged to have a check up at least once every three years. These checks cover the assessment of the risk of heart disease, smoking, weight,diet, blood pressure and alcohol intake.
Please bring a urine sample with you when you attend.

We recommend that every sexually active woman under the age of 65 has a regular smear test. Our policy is to do this routinely every 3 years. When you book an appointment with the practice nurse please let the receptionist know that it is for a smear test to allow us to allocate sufficient appointment time. Please bring a sample of urine to the appointment.
We provide basic immunisation for travel abroad. (e.g Hepatitis A , Typhoid and Polio). The advice is free, together with certain travel vaccinations available on the NHS. However, for certain overseas destinations it may be recommended that you have additional vaccinations not available on the NHS. (e.g.rabies, malaria etc) We are unable to provide and administer these complex vaccinations and recommend that you consult a specialist travel vaccine provider.
