DIABETIC CLINIC Long-term complications of diabetes can be minimised or avoided by good diabetic care and control. Appointments can be booked with our nurse and involves monitoring control, educational advice and health screening for the annual review including an appointment with the podiatrist and dietician as appropriate. All those suffering from diabetes welcome.
CERVICAL SMEAR CLINIC We offer all women a cervical smear test every three to five years in accordance with the NHS cervical screening schedule, or more frequently if it is indicated. This is a simple screening test which can give early warning of cancer of the cervix (neck of the womb) when it is at a treatable stage. As it is possible to develop these pre-cancerous changes at any age it is important that women have the test done regularly. Appointments can be made at the reception desk.

MINOR SURGERY We offer a minor surgery service at the practice including joint injections. Please see a GP in order to arrange this.
