Vaccinations and Immunisations

Cervical Smears

Health Checks

Chronic Conditions – Annual Monitoring

The Practice actively encourages parents to have their children immunised. This not only protects the individual child against serious infectious diseases such as meningitis, measles, whooping cough, polio etc but also helps to maintain an appropriate level of immunity within the general population.

Immunisations are carried out by practice nurses Vicky Parr and Clare Brewer, on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1.30pm - 3.00pm.  No appointment is needed and the nurses are happy to discuss any queries you may have regarding your child’s immunisation needs.

Further information is available on the NHS website, please click here to view.

This is a free test to reduce the risk of you developing cancer of the cervix.  ALL women age 25 to 64 years of age are eligible for this test.  More information can be found here.

You can make an appointment for this with the practice nurses.

If you tell the receptionist you want a smear appointment, you will be given a wide choice of appointment days and times, and it is possible to book in advance, or on the day.

If you have any concerns or questions about what is involved in a smear test, please feel free to make an appointment, or speak to the practice nurse on the phone, who will be happy to chat things through with you.

Appointments can be arranged throughout the week with the practice nurse for regular health checks, e.g. blood pressure, asthma, COPD, cervical smears, adult and child vaccinations (including advice about holiday vaccinations), well woman/well man and family planning advice.

As part of our commitment to providing care in an efficient manner, from 1st April 2024 we are changing the way we review our patients who require annual monitoring. The aim of the new system is to proactively invite Patients for a combined review of their conditions in the month of their birth. Apologies if you have recently been reviewed, there will be a transitional period whilst we move to our new system, and we would ask that you please be patient with us.

The overall aim of the NEW recall system is to proactively invite Patients for a combined review of their conditions in the month of their birth.  Reviews will be undertaken on an annual basis but Patients with more complex needs or Patients with blood results or a BP outside of the desired target range will need to be seen on an interim basis or until they reach the desired target range.

This should ensure a better awareness of when patients are due for their review and should ensure that patients are not called in unnecessarily several times a year.

You may need to attend for Bloods or provide a Urine sample for analysis prior to your review, so we can discuss the results at your review appointment – our Admin / Reception Team will advise you of this. Failure to attend for bloods, if needed, prior to your review may result in the review being re-scheduled.

Apologies if you have recently been reviewed, there will be a transitional period whilst we move to our new system and we would ask that you please be patient with us, we are trying to make improvements to our processes which will in turn improve the overall experience for you, the Patient.

If you have any questions in relation to the above, please ask one of our Team who will be happy to assist or refer your questions on to an appropriate Team member.

Thank you
