Travel Clinic

We offer a comprehensive service for patients travelling abroad including advice and immunisation. This service is available on Thursday afternoon.


Teeth And Eyes

Regular attendance at your dentist or optometrist is advised. Their examinations can disclose conditions which require medical treatment and are helpful in maintaining your general health.


Health Promotion

We are keen to do anything we can to help prevent illness. Much depends upon your own lifestyle - not smoking, alcohol in strict moderation, not being overweight, regular exercise, a well-balanced diet with plenty of roughage and making time to relax away from the pressures of the usual routine are all very important. However, there are some procedures and checks we can help with.



The practice nurses are qualified in cervical cytology, wound care, minor injuries, asthma and diabetes. Consultation for these services can be made directly without seeing the doctor.
There is also a qualified Family Planning nurse who can see patients for oral contraception, depo injections, diaphragm/cap fitting and discussion about IUCD and natural family planning. Please ask for an appointment at reception.

We use computer to store background information on all our patients including dates of birth, telephone numbers, current medications and illness. The information is password protected and only available to staff. We are registered under the Data Protection Act 1984.


Antibiotic Policy

Most coughs, colds and sore throats go away by themselves and don’t need antibiotics. We try to reserve antibiotic usage for infections which are bacterial in origin and will therefore respond successfully to them. Your views on this matter will always be taken into account when deciding on a treatment plan.


Pregnancy and Medications

If there is any chance that you may be pregnant please let your doctor know as most drugs are not safe in the first few months of pregnancy.
