This clinic is not run by a dermatology consultant, this is run by one of our GPs who has an interest in dermatology. You may be offered an appointment in this clinic if you have a skin lesion, a mole, issues with hair or nails, or for a follow-up appointment. These clinics are once a month, so if you have a more urgent need, such as a referral for suspected skin cancer, you may be offered an appointment sooner with another GP.

Nurse and Healthcare Assistant (HCA) Clinics

Our Healthcare Assistants carry out blood test clinics on a Monday morning, all day Wednesday, with a small clinic on a Friday afternoon. Please note that due to strict timings, Healthcare Assistants will not have capacity to carry out any other examinations during these Blood Test Only Clinics, such as blood pressure or weight checks. We have a self-service POD which you can use to record your weight or take your blood pressure.

We think it is very important that everyone, especially children, are fully immunised against serious infections.  If you think that you or your children are not fully covered please ask the doctor or nurse who are happy to advise.  On request we also provide vaccinations for, and give advice on foreign travel (see travel advice below). 

The NHS Health Check scheme is a national initiative whereby patients between the ages of 40 and 74 are invited to their GP practices for a series of health checks, including blood pressure and blood tests. If you are in this age range, you will receive an appointment for such a Health Check. Learn more about NHS Health Checks here, or watch this video from Public Health England. 

Clinics are held for review of patients with heart disease.  These are held by two practice nurses and supported by a doctor. 

Clinics are held by three of our practice nurses supported by a doctor. 

Four of our practice nurses have special training in this area of medicine and hold weekly clinics for Asthma & COPD.  If you have asthma or COPD it is important to have regular reviews. Please make an appointment at reception. 

Our nurses provide up-to-date advice on vaccinations and illness avoidance for overseas travel. Please note: recommendations change all the time, do not assume you are covered. There may be a charge for some of these vaccines. For more information visit our Travel Services page. 

Appointments are available with your own doctor or a female doctor to receive advice on women’s health matters including contraception and the menopause.  Routine smears are undertaken by the Practice Nurse.

Those patients on Warfarin tablets who require regular blood tests can have them done at the practice in a specific clinic on Friday mornings. Please note that appointments for this particular clinic are arranged by the hospital.

In addition to the monthly GP-led clinic, we also have a memory support worker called Carolyne Threadgold, who has a memory support clinic every other Friday.
