Clinics & Services

  • glucose_readingDiabetic clinics - the diabetic clinic runs in Wednesday mornings by Dr Strawson and from 14:00 to 16:00 on a Thursday afternoon by Dr David Mummery with nurse Elaine Nelson. The clinic is specifically designed to give patients with diabetes longer with both a doctor and nurse. Typically appointments last twenty minutes.  This gives you the patient a great opportunity to discuss your own needs and issues that you have dealing with this long term condition.
  • Retinal screening is an annual eye check-up applicable to all patients who have diabetes - this helps prevent blindness.
  • Cardio-vascular disease risk assessment - for all our patients aged 32 - 64. This programme aims to assess and offer treatment of lifestyle advice to all our patents who have an increased risk of developing this condition.
  • Tuberculosis screening - for patients that have recently come to this country from a high risk area. This program aims to identify and treat all those that have this condition.
  • Antenatal care - most of the doctors at the practice see patients for antenatal and postnatal care during their routine surgeries. Please pick the doctor of your choice and tell the reception staff it is for antenatal care so they can book you an appropriate appointment.
  • baby2Baby clinic - There are two baby clinics that run on Mondays and Thursdays. Dr Davison, Dr Patel and Dr Mummery run the clinic for baby health checks while the nurse Elaine runs the clinic for immunisations. We would encourage mothers to book their own post natal check just before their babies' appointment (in the same clinic on the same day). Please phone reception to book a 10 minute slot and one of our staff will give you an appropriate appointment.

News....

We have completed the installation of the New Telephone System!

The new telephone system tells patients where they are in queue, and can now handle more simultaneous callers in the morning when we are very busy. We allow patients to leave messages when the queries about their blood results or have an issue with a referral. The system reminds them that they can do many things on-line and we hope to encourage up-take of these services so that they can organise their medical centre activities at a time that is convenient to them. Remember that on-the-day appointments are released for patients use in the early hours, so you can book your own appointment at 07:00 in the morning rather than waiting to get through on the telephone.

 

Blood test and other queries line: Contact the practice between 09:30 – 13:00 Monday to Friday! (Please check under 'New Services' for more details)

We have resumed the E-mail consultation service from today(25th February 2014). Please check under 'New Services' for more details.
