Regular clinics are offered with the healthcare assistant. New patient reviews for all newly registered pateints over the age of 16yrs old. Heart disease risk checks for 40-74yrs old are offered every 5 years to determine if you will benefit from advice and treatment to prevent heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

The practice provides a full range of contraceptive services including fitting coils and implants.
It is recommended that women should have smears every three years from 25 to 49 years and every 5 years between 50-65 years old. Please make an appointment with our practice nurse.

We still perform some minor surgery at the Practice, such as Ingrowing Toe Nails, skin lesions. Cosmetic procedures are now not usually performed at the Practice or in secondary NHS. Please make an appointment to discuss your suitability for any of these procedures.
If you have a dental problem please contact your dentist - not your GP. Dentists will provide emergency treatment. If you do not have a dentist you can contact the Nottingham Emergency Dental Service (NEDS) via the NHS 111.
For a lot of common illness there is no specific cure and they will resolve with time and simple remedies available without prescription. Your community pharmacist is available to advise you. Ordinary coughs and colds, sore throats and stomach upsets fall into this category. Viruses, which do not respond to treatment with antibiotics, generally cause them. Please therefore don’t expect your doctor to prescribe a drug for every problem. Discussion and advice may be far more useful and free from side effects. We feel it is important that all families should keep a reasonably stocked medical cabinet at home to deal with minor ailments.

It is important to make this initial telephone appointment with the Practice Nurse as early as possible and complete the attached form at the top of this page - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
The surgery provides on the NHS the following vaccines:
Malaria Prophylaxis is not prescribed by the surgery and the local pharmacist will be able to both advise you on this as well as precribe the medication if needed at a cost.
If your travel requires additional vaccinations such as Yellow Fever/Rabies we will advise you to attend a travel clinic and they will be able to advise you of what you need.
