ANTENATAL CLINIC (Midwife)

PRIVATE MEDICALS & INSURANCE REPORTS
Some medical examinations and services (e.g. for employment, sporting activities or insurance purposes) are not covered by the NHS. You will need a special appointment for these. The receptionist will advise you of the fee which is recommended by the British Medical Association.
NHS England runs a recall system for cervical smears which are generally carried out by our nurses. You will be sent for automatically when your test is due, but if you have any worrying symptoms please see the doctor or nurse at any time.
FOREIGN TRAVEL IMMUNISATIONS (Nurse)
If you are going abroad we offer a travel service. Please make an appointment to see the nurse with whom you can discuss your travel plans and receive any immunisations you need. There is a charge for parts of this service. A full list of charges are available at reception and on the practice notice boards.
Recall systems are run for our non-insulin diabetes and asthmatic patients. You will be invited to attend, but please contact the doctor or nurse at any time if you have any worrying symptoms.
