SERVICES WE PROVIDE
Patients are asked to have their yearly blood test two weeks prior to the appointment. Your Diabetic Review may now take the form of a Group Clinic, held by our Diabetic Nurse Laura or our Paramedic Mel, with the help of a facilitator. These groups take place on Tuesday and Thursday Mornings.
We can also refer patients to:
- Health Coaching for Diabetes
- Xyla Health and Wellbeing for patients in remission
- Diabetes Prevention Programme for Pre-Diabetes
Children's immunisations are with a Practice Nurse, usually in morning clinics but we can offer afternoon appointments.
Our Children's Page contains more information about what Vaccinations your child needs.
CERVICAL SMEAR CLINIC
Cervical screening reduces the risk of developing cervical cancer; it is not a test for diagnosing cervical cancer. It is a test to check the health of the cervix, which is the lower part of the womb (often called the neck of the womb). We offer the test to all women aged 25-64. This entails inviting women every 36 months in the age group 25-49 and every 60 months for women aged 50-64. Appointments should be made when the patient is mid-cycle of her menstrual period.
FAMILY PLANNING SERVICES
- Confidential advice and a full range of family planning services are available at the surgery.
- All doctors are qualified in family planning, but you can see any doctor you wish, even if it's not your "named GP".
- Emergency contraception (also known as the 'morning after pill') may be taken up to three days after unprotected sex. The earlier it is used the more effective it is. If needed, please do make an appointment within this time. If there are no routine appointments then tell the receptionist that this is an emergency.
If you would like to change your contraception, please book an appointment with a GP to discuss.
After consultation with a GP, you may wish to be booked into one of our Coil Fitting Clinics which take place on a Tuesday afternoon with either Dr Allen or Dr Fielding, assisted by one of our Health Care Assistants.
If you are on a contraceptive pill, we may do your pill review via text questionnaire.
We offer a minor surgery service for various procedures, including the removal of skin lesions and ingrowing toenails etc. Please make an appointment with your doctor to discuss this first. These clinics take place on a Friday Afternoon with either Dr M Patel or Dr Forrest, assisted by one of our Health Care Assistants
Medical examinations for special reasons eg. employment, fitness to drive or insurance are not undertaken during routine surgery times. A special appointment may be made with the doctor and you will be informed of the fee involved.
ENHANCED ACCESS HUB CLINICS
This service is provided in partnership with Alliance for Better Care (ABC) and East Grinstead Primary Care Network (PCN) to provide provision of evening and weekend GP appointments, along with additional appointments throughout the day.
The Extended Access Hub clinics offer face-to-face and telephone GP appointments from the Queen Victoria Hospital, or other local locations, and can be booked by our Patient Services Team.
As this Service is provided in partnership with a third party, our team will ask for your permission to share your details with the Hub Service. Please be aware you may be booked with a GP from another practice.
