Services We Provide
We run a range of clinics. For an appointment or further details please call your nearest surgery.
This clinic is run by the midwives every Wednesday at Burham. If you become pregnant you will be given a booking appointment at which the midwife will ask you a few questions and carry out some general health checks. Your first appointment with the midwife will usually last for an hour. After this you will be seen regularly throughout your pregnancy at the practice or at the local hospital or both.
The Practice provides a full range of contraceptive services including Intrauterine Services ("Coils") and Subdermal Implant insertion and removal.
Minor operations including removal of minor lumps and bumps can be performed in our treatment room by Dr Pile. Sessions are held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday each month from 1.30pm – 3.00pm at Burham.
Please discuss your need for any minor surgery with Dr Pile who will then arrange for you to be given a Minor Operation appointment.
Blood tests can be performed most days but appointments will generally need to be before 10.30 in order to ensure the specimens are ready for the Laboratory collection. Please speak to a receptionist who will be pleased to find you an appropriate appointment. Please also note the early morning clinics we run from 7am on Tuesday at Eccles and Burham on a Wednesday.
If you are taking Warfarin the Practice can monitor this for you. Please speak to a receptionist who will be happy to make the appropriate arrangements.
We run clinics specifically for the flu injections during the "flu season". These will be starting in September so please keep an eye out for the advertising later in the year.
Child Health and Vaccinations
The vaccination jabs which children receive in their early years - between birth and when they first go to school - are very important in helping them build protection against infections such as meningitis, diphtheria, polio, measles and mumps.
These diseases are in circulation and an infection can cause serious complications, particularly for a child. But it is not only the child who is protected, vaccination programmes protect the whole population by making it harder for a disease to spread to others.
It is particularly important that children are fully up-to date with all their jabs before they start school for the first time, which is when they come into contact with more potential sources of infection.The vast majority of parents do ensure their child has been fully protected, but there are many children who are missing doses and therefore at risk.
All new babies are invited for a check-up when they are 8 weeks old and they will normally receive their first immunisations at the same time. Please call reception to book an appointment.
More information is available on the NHS Choices website but if in any doubt that your child is missing important vaccinations you should speak to your GP.
There’s no point spending hours choosing your swimwear, beach bag and flip-flops if you barely think about the bugs and other health risks that could ruin your holiday.
