A cervical smear is a simple and painless examination which detects any changes in the cervix (neck of the womb) which, if left untreated, could develop into cancer. Early changes are curable, so it is wise for women to have regular smears, once every 3 years for those aged under 50, every 5 years thereafter.
If you are planning a pregnancy, the nurses will be pleased to discuss any queries you may have about this. Make sure you are protected against rubella (german measles) by arranging to have a blood test. Folic acid is a vitamin which is important in preventing spina bifida. Women planning a pregnancy, and those already pregnant, should take 400 micrograms of folic acid a day until they are 12 weeks pregnant. This can be purchased very cheaply from supermarkets and pharmacies.
Most of the nurses in this practice provide full family planning services, in conjunction with the doctors. We offer contraceptive injections, as well as implants and coil fitting by special appointment.
It is important that young babies are protected against diphtheria, tetanus, polio, whooping cough, meningitis (HIB & C), pneumonia, mumps, measles, and rubella. Our practice nurses run child immunisation clinics every Tuesday from 2:00 - 4:00pm. We strongly recommend that your children are immunised to protect against these illnesses.
There is a Lloyds pharmacy next to our surgery, which provides all the usual pharmacy services.
For non-NHS services, such as employment, driving or insurance medicals, we charge the standard BMA fees, as stated on our tariff sheet. We put our NHS work first and may be unable to undertake private work at busy times.
