From the 8th January 2016 the antenatal clinics will be held on alternate Friday afternoons 2.30pm - 4.30pm
Patients are seen by the midwife at the clinics by appointment and also by the doctors during surgery hours.
Thursday 11.00am – 12 noon
The baby clinics are run by Dr Wijethilleke and the health visitor for child developmental checks and immunisations and allow an opportunity to discuss other problems, eg sleeping, feeding and child health worries, with a doctor or health visitor.
Contraceptive care is provided by the nurse during surgery hours.
Well Woman/Man Clinics
This clinic is run during surgery hours by the nurse and is by appointment only.
Dr Wijethilleke carries out minor surgical procedures on Mondays at the surgery by appointment and he will be happy to advise you on this.
The doctor is happy to carry out medicals, eg insurance and HGV and taxi licences by appointment outside surgery hours. Please telephone the surgery for an appointment. Do ask at reception for the charges for these services.
A voluntary counsellor is available for counselling on Monday afternoons. Please ask the doctor for an appointment.
Patients Over 75 Years
If you are aged 75 years or over, you should be seen annually either by the doctor or the practice nurse. This can be arranged at the surgery or, if that is not possible, a home visit will be arranged.
Please make an appointment at least three weeks in advance of your holiday to ensure adequate cover. A charge will be made for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS. A list of these charges is held at reception.
An influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients with heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes and residents of nursing and residential homes.
Please contact the reception staff in September for details of the vaccination dates and to make an appointment. If you are unable to attend the surgery, a home visit will be arranged to undertake this facility.
