Effective contraception is not simply about preventing pregnancy – we try to educate our patients about the avoidance of sexually transmitted infections and general sexual health.
Age is not a barrier to seeking contraceptive / sexual health advice. Your medical records are confidential and young patients should seek contraceptive advice if they are, or are thinking about becoming, sexually active.
Contraceptive / sexual health advice is provided by our team of doctors and nurses. They can provide you with information to enable you to make the right contraception decisions for you.
We also have a number of leaflets about contraception – please enquire at the surgery.
The surgery has facilities to insert coils and contraceptive implants, as well as providing the depo-injection and ‘the pill’.
Our diabetes clinic is run by Sister Rhona Roberts and Sister Sian Jones.
All patients with diabetes are automatically invited to the clinic periodically. Patients who are experiencing difficulties with their diabetic control and management will be seen more frequently but all diabetic patients at the practice will be invited to the clinic at least annually.
We run a flu jab clinic from September.
Ask at reception for further information.
Heart Disease/Stroke Care
Patients with coronary heart disease and patients who have had a stroke will be invited to our Cardiovascular clinic which is run by our practice nurses.
All patients with heart disease and all patients who have had a stroke are automatically invited to the clinic periodically. Patients who are experiencing difficulties with their management will be seen more frequently but all eligible patients at the practice will be invited to the clinic at least annually.
Patients with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can attend our respiratory clinic and may be asked to attend from time to time to make an up-to-date assessment of their breathing function and to make sure that we are treating them as effectively as possible.
The clinic is run by Sister Rhona Roberts and Sister Sian Jones.
