Child Health Promotion
We monitor the health, well-being and development of children under the age of 5. A clinic is held on Tuesday afternoon from 1.00pm for baby medical examinations and immunisations with the doctor and Practice nurse. These are by appointment only. The Health Visiting Team now run drop in clinics in local locations. Please ask reception for further details.
Blood Samples (phlebotomy)
We will offer to take all necessary samples at the practice but you can instead choose to attend a hospital clinic.
If you are 75 years of age or older and have not had a consultation in the last 12 months, you may ask for a health check to be carried out. If, due to your health, you are unable to attend surgery, this health check may be carried out in your home.
