We have five practice nurses and a healthcare assistant who work in the treatment room. The treatment room is open from 08.00 until 18:30, and closes between 13.00 and 14:00 for lunch. There are also appointments available to pre-book for Saturday mornings between 09.00 and 12.00.
Patients are able to take their blood pressure on the self-use machine in the waiting room. This will print the readings, which you can give to the receptionist for recording on your medical record.
Child health surveillance appointments are carried out on Thursday mornings by Dr. Naeem and the health visitor.
During the afternoons there are various clinics including asthma, diabetes, travel, chronic disease, family planning and health screening. We also offer cardiovascular health checks by appointment if you are aged between 40 and 74 years, and do not suffer with existing coronary heart disease.
The practice nurses also carry out dressings, immunisations, removal of sutures, ear syringing, ECGs, smear tests, and assist with minor surgery procedures. They also run blood pressure clinics and give general advice on health and well-being.
