The doctors and nurses provide advice on family planning, including oral contraception, depot (injectable) contraceptive preparations and the fitting and checking of coils. A practice leaflet is available on the fitting of coils.
Conditions such as skin cysts, moles, ingrowing toenails, etc can be removed under local anaesthesia. Some problems can be helped by specific joint injections.
These are carried out by our specially trained practice nurses. We operate a call and recall system and all our female patients between the age of 20 and 64 will be sent regular follow-up appointments to attend for this investigation. You will receive written notification of your smear result, usually within 4 weeks of the test. If you have not had a smear within the last 3 years please ask for an appointment.
