Clinics and Services

Antenatal Care

Antenatal care is the care and help you receive from health professionals during the course of your pregnancy. It is important you take good care of your own health and that of your unborn baby during pregnancy.

When you find out that you are pregnant please register your pregnancy by completing the following online referral form or call the Midwifery team directly on 01865 220457. An initial appointment with your GP is no longer necessary unless you are on regular medication or have existing medical conditions which may impact your pregnancy. If that is the case, please contact us to request a GP appointment.

Asthma and COPD Clinics

Our practice nurses are specially trained in asthma and COPD care. During their clinics, they keep an eye on how you're doing and make sure your treatment is working well.

If you have asthma or COPD, it's important to have a check-up every year to review how you're feeling and how your treatment is going. If you have asthma, we'll send you a questionnaire to fill out about your symptoms. If it shows that your asthma isn't well controlled, we'll set up an appointment for you with one of our practice nurses.

We'll contact COPD patients when it's time for your annual review. We'll ask you to call us to schedule an appointment with one of our nurses.

If you are concerned about your asthma or COPD and need to speak to one of our nurses please request an appointment

Bowel Cancer

Everyone aged 60 to 74 years who is registered with a GP and lives in England is automatically sent an NHS bowel cancer screening kit every 2 years.

The programme is expanding so that everyone aged 50 to 59 years will be eligible for screening. This is happening gradually over 4 years and started in April 2021 with 56 year olds.

Make sure your GP practice has your correct address so your kit is posted to the right place.

If you're 75 or over, you can ask for a kit every 2 years by phoning the free bowel cancer screening helpline on 0800 707 60 60. You can also call this number if you are eligible for bowel cancer screening and didn’t receive your test kit.

Breast Screening

Anyone registered with a GP as female will be invited for NHS breast screening every 3 years between the ages of 50 and 71. You'll get a letter in the post inviting you. Screening is by appointment only and there is no drop-in service. The screening office runs a rolling programme which invites women by area. The requirement is that all women will receive their first invitation before their 53rd birthday. Women aged 71 or over can contact the local breast screening unit on 01865 235621 to make an appointment every 3 years. Women with breast symptoms should see their GP.

Cancer Care

If you have received a cancer diagnosis the surgery is here to help. We will write to you to offer you an appointment with your GP and/or one of our social prescribers depending on the help you need.

Patients will also be offered an appointment within the first year of their diagnosis so we can discuss the impact that the cancer or its treatment has had on you (both emotionally and physically) and offer help with this.

If you are worried about your cancer and need to speak to a healthcare professional please don’t feel like you have to wait for this review.

Cervical Smears

Childhood Immunisations

One of the most important things that a parent can do for their child is to make sure that they have all their routine childhood vaccinations. It’s the most effective way of keeping them protected against infectious diseases.
Ideally, children should have their injections at the right age to protect them as early as possible and minimise the risk of infection.
