Antenatal clinics are led by the local community midwifery team, in partnership with the GPs, and are held on Wednesday mornings at Windhill and on Tuesday mornings at Cliffe Avenue. Please contact your usual surgery to book appointents, as directed by your midwife.
Contraception and Sexual Health
The practice runs a drop-in Contraceptive & Sexual Health service every Monday evening in the Emerald Suite, between 4 and 6.30pm. Our nurses are able to give advice, issue condoms, discuss emergency contraception and prescribe contraceptive pills and injections, and to discuss the need for screening for sexually transmitted infections. A Gp is usually on hand to discuss more complex issues and where appropriate, fit contraceptive implants and remove coils.Coil fittings and implant removals may be booked in advance by speaking to a doctor or family planning nurse.
Please note that this service is only available to patients of the practice. Male patients may be asked to book a separate GUM clinic appointment ( see our "Sexual Health" webpage) to discuss sexual health problems. Please also note that we will not routinely perform smear tests in this clinic, unless an internal examination is required for another reason.( smear tests should be arranged by appointment with our practice nurses, via reception)
The practice currently recalls women at three-yearly intervals if under 50 years of age and every 4 1/2 years thereafter. A reminder will normally be sent but if you believe your smear test is due please speak to the receptionist.
(Warfarin) held weekly at both premises by a member of the practice nurse team.
