Clinics We Offer
Chronic Disease Management
The practice operates recall systems to ensure that patients with ongoing medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, or asthma are offered regular supervision. The check-ups for these conditions are undertaken in regular surgery appointments by the doctors and some of the practice nurses. Many of the checks require blood tests to be taken by the health care assistants about two weeks prior to the review appointment.
Skin surgery is undertaken in the treatment room at the surgery by Anya Grist our Advanced Clinical Practitioner. Any patients who feel they may benefit from this service are asked to make an appointment with Anya Grist to enable appropriate arrangements to be made.
Our nurses are able to offer advice on a variety of contraceptive measures. We also hold Coil and Implant clinics at the surgery wiht our experienced ACP.
All contraception discussions and checkds can be booked by calling the surgery and speaking to a receptionist.

- Bereavement and loss,
- Relationship and personal problems,
- Family Problems;
- Work and unemployment issues;
- Anxiety and Depression;
- Emotional Problems.
Counselling is not about giving advice. It is intended to help people become more aware of their own resources, find options, and make choices that are right for them.
