Asthma, diabetes, COPD or heart conditions
If you suffer from a chronic disease such as asthma, COPD, diabetes or you have a heart condition, the majority of your care will be carried out by our nursing team. You will be invited into surgery for an annual review usually around your birthday month. You do not need to see a doctor before seeing the nurse.
We offer a full range of family planning services, including morning after pills and fitting of coils and diaphragms. We also offer pre-conceptual counselling.
Ante-natal and Post-natal care
We work closely with the Midwives to provide this.
Advice on Menopause
We offer advice on HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy), including hormone implants.
Cervical Smear Tests
This is a simple test which is offered to women between the ages of 25 and 64. It can help prevent cancer of the cervix (neck of the womb). We strongly recommend that all women in this age group have this test every 5 years, unless they have had a hysterectomy. We normally notify patients of the result of smear tests, by letter, within 6 weeks.
Some minor surgical procedures are carried out in the surgery by Dr. Hunter and Dr Patel.
