Latest information:

Due to a recent release update the System online website has made the following change:

Ordering of repeat prescriptions have now been limited to 5 medication per request forcing patient to log off and then logging back in to order the remainder. This has been discussed with TTP and the limit will be removed on the next system update.

Family Planning

By appointment for advice on a variety of methods. We offer, in confidence, full family planning services, as we believe that family planning is an important part of health care. Our services cover a wide range:

  • Pill
  • Mini pill
  • Morning after pill

The practice nurse is well trained and available for discussion, and any enquiries you may have.

Smear Tests

We recommend our female patients aged up to 50 have a smear test every 3 years, and over 50 every 5 years. This is a simple painless procedure, which takes a couple of minutes. Make an appointment to see the practice nurse.

Flu Vaccincation syringe

We strongly advise you to have a flu vaccination every year if you:

  • Are over 65 years old
  • Need regular asthma inhalers
  • Have chronic chest problems
  • Suffer from angina or heart problems
  • Are a diabetic
  • Have any other serious health problems

We also offer the pneumococcal vaccination to everyone who needs a flu vaccination. This is a single injection to protect you from pneumococcal pneumonia and this injection will last for some years.

Other people who should have the vaccine every year are people with:

  • No spleen
  • Celiac disease
  • Lung fibrosis
  • Long-term steroid treatment
  • Kidney problems
  • Transplants

We commence vaccinations against flu every October. Please give your name into reception to enable us to contact you if you wish to be vaccinated as soon as the vaccine arrives. Names are taken in September ready for OCTOBER. If you do not enter your name, you may be unable to obtain a vaccine, as only a limited number are available.
