Clinics & Services
To reduce the risk of cervical cancer, it is advised that smear tests are performed every three years on all women between the ages of 25 and 65. It is sometimes necessary to perform smear tests more often than this. The Health Authority will notify you when your test is due. If you have any questions regarding smear tests please feel free to discuss them with the practice nurses or doctors.
The doctors and nurses provide advice on all aspects of family planning. Implants and coils can be fitted at the surgery.
Child Immunisation Clinic
This clinic is held on Wednesdays with 2 practice nurses. Childhood immunisations are given by the practice nurse. If your child is ill it is important that you attend one of the ordinary doctors' surgeries, to prevent spread of infection to the other well babies.
These are run by the practice nurses and take place on a regular basis. For further details please enquire at reception.
They carry out blood tests, blood pressure control, smoking cessation and weight control working under the supervision of the practice nurses.
