Family Planning and Contraceptive advice
The doctors and practice nurses can give advice about all sorts of family planning. We can fit coils, caps and contraceptive implants. We can also arrange emergency contraception: please get in touch as soon as possible and mention that it is urgent when making your appointment.
We run a drop-in Family Planning Clinic every Tuesday at Oxford Terrace from 5 pm to 6 pm, you don’t need to make an appointment.
This clinic is held at Rawling Road, please arrange your appointment before attending.

Fortnightly, on a Wednesday afternoon. We send letter to invite every diabetic patient to this clinic regularly. In the clinic you will see a doctor, practice nurse, chiropodist and dietician.
Cervical Smears (Cytology)
We strongly recommend that women have a cervical smear every 3 years from age 25 to 65. Just make an appointment with a practice nurse. You will get a letter telling you the result. If you have any questions or worries, please telephone or see the practice nurse.
A number of our doctors perform minor surgical procedures here in the practice for convenience and speed of treatment.
This includes removal of many benign skin lesions such as skin tags, warts, raised moles, cysts, small fatty lumps (lipomas), treatment for ingrowing toenails as well as steroid injections to joints for arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis etc. Removal of lesions is done through our Minor Surgery Clinics. Steroid joint injections can be given in a regular GP appointment if deemed appropriate.
Please see one of the GPs to discuss and arrange treatment.
