Clinics & Services
In addition to GP consultations the practice a range of clinics and healthcare services:
Chronic Disease Management
The practice offers advice on the following
- Heart disease
Appointments for these clinics can be made through reception.
Cervical Smears - arrange a special appointment in the surgery with a doctor or the practice nurse.
Antenatal & Postnatal - antenatal and postnatal care is provided by the doctors during normal surgery hours. When making an appointment you should tell the receptionist that you are attending for these services. We are happy to give advice about planning a pregnancy. We also have a midwife-run clinic once a week in the surgery.
Contraception/Sexual Health - fitting and removal of contraceptive implants, removal of coils and screening for sexually transmitted infections. The contraceptive implant Nexplanon is fitted by Dr Gillespie and Dr Whyte. If you are interested in Nexplanon please make a GP appointment to discuss this first. You will then be asked to return for a longer appointment to allow time for fitting.
Wart Clinic & Minor Surgery - the practice runs a wart clinic every 3 weeks. Generally we advise the use of a proprietary wart paint daily for at least 8 weeks before attending the wart clinic where freezing treatment can be carried out. The wart clinic runs from 09:15 -12:15. Removal of small lumps can be arranged by referral to a local practice.
Travel Clinic - if you are travelling abroad to a country outside mainland Europe and North America you will most probably need vaccinations and possibly anti-malarial tablets. We ask that you make an appointment with our practice nurse at least 6 weeks prior to travel. Further information is available from the above tab.
