Nursing in general
Our nurses can advise on many aspects of your health including vaccinations, travel immunisations, diet, smoking cessation, well person clinics and family planning. They administer vaccinations, baby immunisations and flu jabs, perform ECG’s, cervical smears and ear syringing. They attend to dressings, remove stitches and assist with minor operations and coil fittings.
Nurses also run specialist clinics for diabetes and asthma in liaison with the doctors. You can consult the nurses by telephone if you wish. Please inform the receptionist

Certain patients require an annual review to ensure that the medication they are taking is still effective and at the correct dose. It may be that you are under a Consultant or Specialist but it is our doctors who are prescribing the medication and therefore legally responsible for ensuring it is still effective. They may not continue to prescribe your medicines without having seen you. Your annual review should be booked in the month in which your birthday occurs for ease of remembering. See Clinics

If you are having a fasting blood test e.g. for lipids, please inform the receptionist when booking to ensure an early appointment.
If the doctor or nurse asks you to bring in a specimen to be sent to the hospital laboratory, please ensure that it arrives before 12 noon. The container should not leak and should be labeled with your name, date of birth and date of sample. Specimen containers are available at reception.
Please allow 3-4 days for blood/urine results and 1-2 weeks for X-ray results to come from the hospital. Some results may take longer. You should ring the surgery 5-6pm to obtain your results. This allows the doctors time to deal with their mail. We will contact you should any result need further investigation, however, we would ask you to ensure you follow up any tests by calling the surgery.
The practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. We will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of the results.
