Outside normal surgery hours (evenings, weekends and bank holidays) emergency cover for the practice is provided by NEMS Community Benefit Services Ltd Out of Hours service. The Out of Hours service provides medical care for patients that do not need Emergency Department Care. It is a service that is led by a range of clinical staff such as GPs, Nurses, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Emergency Care Practitioners.
Ante-natal clinics are held on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings (sometimes afternoon), by appointment and in conjunction with the community midwives who organise and offer their own appointments.
Asthma, Hypertension, Diabetes & Chronic Heart Disease Clinics
These clinics are held for regular review of patients with the above conditions. They are run by appointment with the practice nurse or doctor.
Child Health Surveillance and Baby Clinic
This clinic is held on Monday afternoons from 13:30 to 15:00. The doctor, practice nurse and health visitor are in attendance. Immunisations are dealt with by the doctor or practice nurse. The health visitor offers advice on problems not related to illness e.g. sleeping, feeding and toilet training. This is an open access clinic and an appointment is not needed for health visitor. Appointment only with practice nurse for Immunisations.

Regular development checks are performed at the appropriate ages by either the doctor or the health visitor. Appointments for these special development checks will be sent directly. Toddlers’ clinic: twice a month for over 1 year.
Contraception and Family Planning
Comprehensive contraception advice is available during normal surgery times. We offer oral contraceptives, injectable contraceptives. The morning after pill is prescribed where appropriate.
These are done by the practice nurse. Please inform the reception staff when you book your appointment so that extra time can be allowed in surgery. Our policy is to test every woman aged between twenty five years and sixty five years every 3 or 5 years—unless the consultant or laboratory recommends repeating the smear more often.
A variety of small operations and joint injections are performed by the doctors in the surgery. If the doctor recommends this a special appointment will be made. There is a minor surgery clinic once a month on Thursday morning.
The Practice offers advice and vaccinations for travel abroad. Most of the vaccinations are free on the NHS. We do charge for the vaccinations not available on the NHS and for certificates. If possible please give 2 - 4 weeks’ notice to enable us to complete programmes. More information is available on the above tab.
In accordance with the Department of Health guidelines, we recommend an influenza vaccine for the elderly and patients with chronic heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes and residents of nursing and rest homes. The vaccination is usually available in October/November.
These are available for patients not seen for 3 years and the over 75’s.
If you are taking warfarin tablets our practice nurse will take your blood here in the surgery so that you do not have to go to the hospital for your blood test.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
