Clinics & Services

In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a wide range of clinics and healthcare services:

Dr Alexander has a special interest in diabetes. He runs a clinic  where he is assisted by practice nurse Doreen Brown. All diabetics are asked to attend at least once a year for a full check.

Asthma Clinic

Asthma clinics are run by our practice nurses who have undergone special training in asthma and chronic chest complaints. Patients are encouraged to attend at least once a year.

Pre-conceptual Counselling

This is advice on how to look after yourself before you get pregnant. Please ask your doctor for further information.

Maternity Care

If you think you are pregnant, please arrange an appointment with our midwives. Your care will be shared between your doctor, our midwives and the hospital. We have an antenatal clinic run by our midwives, on Thursday afternoon between 13:30 – 16:30.

Under Fives 99351926

Our practice nurses administer baby injections on a Thursday at a well baby clinic. We recommend that babies have immunisation against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, haemophilus influenzae B, meningitis and polio at two, three and four months and are immunised against measles, mumps and rubella (German measles) at 12 - 15 months. If your child is unwell, it is more appropriate for them to be seen in surgery rather than at the well baby clinic.

We recommend that pre-school children have a booster against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough and polio at four years.

Consent for Vaccinations

Would all parents/legal guardians of newborn babies please note that their informed written consent must be given prior to the commencement of a vaccination programme for babies. A grandparent or other person cannot do this. Once written consent has been given for a programme to commence, another person may then bring babies to the clinic for vaccination.

Smear Clinic

Women aged between 25-49 years are invited to have a smear every three years. Women aged between 50-64 years are invited to have a smear every five years.

Our practice nurses run a smear clinic on a Tuesday afternoon between 13:30 – 16:30 and on a Friday morning between 08:15 – 10:15. For women who are unable to attend these clinics, we have special arrangements - please ask at reception.

Steroid Injections syringe

Steroid injections (not knees) are administered at the surgery. It is necessary to see Dr Moore or Dr Hugh Alexander in surgery beforehand.

Travel Immunisations

Our practice nurses can advise you on the vaccination requirements for your holiday. Please ask at reception for details. You will be asked to complete a questionnaire before attending. There may be charges for some vaccines but you will be advised of this at the start of the course. See the above tab for more details.
