Regular clinics are offered with the healthcare assistant. New patient reviews for all newly registered patients over the age of 16yrs old. Heart disease risk checks for 40-74yrs old are offered every 5 years to determine if you will benefit from advice and treatment to prevent heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
If you are over 75yrs old you will have a named doctor allocated to you to take responsibility for your care.

It is recommended that women should have smears every three years from 25 to 49 years and every 5 years between 50-65 years old. Please make an appointment with our practice nurse.

We still perform some minor surgery at the Practice, such as ingrowing toe nails, skin lesions. cosmetic procedures are now not usually performed at the Practice or in secondary NHS. Please make an appointment to discuss your suitability for any of these procedures.
For a lot of common illness there is no specific cure and they will resolve with time and simple remedies available without prescription. Your community pharmacist is available to advise you. Ordinary coughs and colds, sore throats and stomach upsets fall into this category. Viruses, which do not respond to treatment with antibiotics, generally cause them. Please therefore don’t expect your doctor to prescribe a drug for every problem. Discussion and advice may be far more useful and free from side effects. We feel it is important that all families should keep a reasonably stocked medical cabinet at home to deal with minor ailments.
Blood taking clinics are now available only in Highcroft Health Centre but are available everyday Mon-Fri between 08:30 – 11:45 by appointment, please contact them on 0115 883 2300 to book an appointment.
