We have a team of attached district nurses caring for those who
cannot attend the surgery. If you need to contact a district
nurse please ring the surgery and a receptionist can contact the
nurse for you.
A counsellor attends the surgery on a regular
basis. Self-referral is not possible and an initial consultation
with one of the doctors is required.
All doctors provide full maternity services, including preconception
For the first 10 days or longer if necessary, the midwives will
visit you. After 10 days one of the health visitors will be in
contact with you and will arrange to visit you. The postnatal
examination is usually carried out at six weeks after the birth
along with a check up for the baby. Please make an appointment for
this in the postnatal clinic.
Attached midwives: 01249 456434
Health visitors: 01249 446155
All these are done at our weekly immunisation clinic on a Thursday
afternoon. We believe that all the immunisations offered are safe
and give good protection to children. We hope that all parents will
allow their children to benefit from the immunisation programme. If
any parent has a concern about immunisations they should discuss
this with a doctor, health visitor or the nurse manager.
Further information on children's immunisations can be found
We are able to offer travel advice and all vaccinations
with the exception of Yellow Fever.
As different countries have
ever-changing requirements and recommendations we advise that you
make an appointment as early as possible to plan the vaccination
programme you need. This appointment should be made with one
of our nurses who keep up to date with requirements.
We must have at least 4 weeks' notice
prior to your travel date; otherwise you will need to organise to
have these carried out at a travel clinic.
