Our Services


Antenatal care is the care you get from health professionals during your pregnancy. It's sometimes called pregnancy care or maternity care.

You'll be offered appointments with a midwife, or sometimes a doctor who specialises in pregnancy and birth (an obstetrician). Majority of your Antenatal care will be at Coleman Street where the midwives are based.

Once the baby is born our team will be in touch to help you register your child to the GP surgery. If we do not hear from you within a week we will register the child on your behalf. 

Once the child is 5 weeks old our team will be in touch to get you booked in for your post-natal care and baby check.


If you are due a blood test for any reason our staff will text you to let you know your blood form is ready to collect from your GP reception. The text you receive will also have a link to book your test via SwiftQueue. 

If we do not hear from you, we will give you a call to let you know your blood form is ready and how to book your blood test.

Cervical Smears

What is a cervical screen? 
All women aged 25 to 64 are invited by letter to cervical screening (a smear test) to check the health of their cervix. It's not a test for cancer, it's a test to help prevent cancer.

During the screening appointment, a small sample of cells will be taken from your cervix.

The sample is checked for certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV) that can cause changes to the cells of your cervix. These are called "high risk" types of HPV. If these types of cells are found, you will be invited back for further testing. If none are found, you will not be invited back till you are next due a test.

The nurse or doctor will tell you when you can expect your results letter.

When to book:
You will be sent a text when it is your time to book, with a link to book an appointment. If you do no respond one of our team will be in touch to book you in. 

In the final instance if we have not heard from you, you will be sent a letter and you can call us to book an appointment or book online.

Childhood Immunisations

Our team will contact you when it is time to book your child's immunisations. Please see the NHS vaccine schedule. 

Once your child has had the 8-week immunisations the nurse will book them in for their following appointments for their 12 week and 16-week immunisations. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.


We offer different forms of contraception for all our patients at the practice. We provide injections, implants, coils and the contraceptive pill.

For more information on which form of contraception suits you please visit the NHS website

If you wish to have an implant or coil, then you would need to contact the practice for a routine appointment with one of our GPs. They will discuss this with you further then add you to a waiting list, should these forms of contraception be suitable for you. Once on the waiting list a member of our non-clinical team will call you to book an appointment for this to be completed. 
If you require a removal or replacement, then you can contact the practice and ask them to add you to the waiting list (you do not require a GP appointment for this) and a non-clinical team member will call you to book this appointment.

If you wish to have the contraceptive injection you will need to contact the practice and book a routine appointment to discuss this with a GP. If you are suitable for the contraceptive injection, then the GP will advise you to book in with a member of our nursing team to get this administered. These injections are administered every 3 months.

For the contraceptive pill you will need to contact the practice and book a routine appointment to discuss this with a GP. If you are suitable for the contraceptive pill the GP will prescribe this for you. The contraceptive pill requires a yearly review with a nurse, or you may require a review every 6 months if your blood pressure fluctuates.

District Nurses

There are district nurses who are available to see you in your home if you are unable to get to the practice. They help with the following: dressings, removal of sutures, injections and advice on the care of the chronically sick and terminally ill. Advice on incontinence and applying pads along with other aids. To contact a District Nurse please telephone 01332 564900

Ear Syringing

Our nursing team provide an ear syringing service for our patients. You will need to contact the practice and book a 20-minute appointment for this procedure. Prior to your appointment, for the 7 days leading up to this you will need to put olive oil in your ears twice a day, once, in the morning and once in the evening. With the blockage softened, the nurse will be able to syringe your ears with minimal issue. 

Extended Access

We provide an extended access service to accommodate for patients who require evening or weekend appointments. Within these appointments we have GPs, first contact physiotherapists, health care assistants, nurses, and advanced nurse/ clinical practitioners.
We have pre-bookable and on the day appointments for our evening clinics and our Saturday appointments can be pre-booked during the week through our reception team.

Please see our opening times for our extended access hours


We can arrange interpreters for any of our non-English speaking patients,  please let us know if you require this service at the time of booking your appointment.

Although the reception team aren’t medically trained, it is important this information is taken, to be given an appointment with the appropriate clinician.

It is also important that we have your most up to date contact details.

Long Term Conditions

Anybody with a long-term condition will be called in once a year for a review of their condition. You will be called in by your birth month if you are born between April-December. If you are born between January-March your birth month will be reallocated to align with our process. You will be asked to attend a community blood clinic to have your blood tests (for conditions other than asthma and COPD). If you are diabetic, you will be offered an appointment to have a foot examination. If you have asthma or COPD, you will be seen by one of our respiratory nurses.

The long-term conditions that we manage are:

  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Coronary Heart Disease
  • Dementia
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Failure
  • Hypertension
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Mental Health
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis (if not seen by rheumatology)
  • Stroke/Transient Ischaemic Attack
  • Asthma 
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease 
  • Previous Bariatric Surgery
  • Coeliac Disease
  • Gestational Diabetes
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Pre-Diabetes

If you have more than one long-term condition, you may need to have more than one appointment. For example, if you have hypertension and asthma, you will see the healthcare assistant for your hypertension review and a nurse for your asthma review. However, if all your long-term conditions only require you to see the healthcare assistant, you will only need one appointment.

If you have diabetes, once your blood results are received, you will be booked in with one of our nurses to discuss your ongoing care plan. This can be done face-to-face or by telephone. 

If you are on medication, once your initial long-term condition review is completed, you will be booked in with one of our in-house pharmacists to review your repeat medication. You may not necessarily be contacted for this appointment, as the pharmacist will review your medication based of your bloods and questions answered. They may contact you by telephone if they have any questions. Your medication will be re-authorised until your birth month of the following year, allowing you to request your medication as normal.
