Clinics & Services
In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a wide range of clinics and healthcare services:
Care is led by the community midwife who will arrange booking , antenatal bloods and scans. Though the midwife is the lead professional, care is also shared between the doctors and The Rosie Maternity Hospital on the Addenbrookes site. Complicated and high risk pregnancies are referred directly for consultant led care.
We are pleased to advise on and provide all types of contraception, including pills, diaphragm, IUCD (coil), depot injections and implants. Please see a practice nurse. Implants and IUCDs can be fitted at the surgery by doctors with extra training in these procedures.
These are done by appointment with a nurse. They should be taken midway between your periods if you have them.Routine smears are repeated according to the Addenbrooke's laboratory recommendations and the national cervical smear screening program. Patients receive reminders by post.
Well Baby Clinic
Routine immunisations and development checks are offered for all pre-school children.
You will be notified by post when these are due but do not need to wait for this. The practice nurses run the clinic.
These are carried out by appointment with the nurse for foreign travel or protection at home. We ask patients to wait for 20 minutes after any injection in case a reaction occurs. There is a charge for some travel vaccinations not available on the NHS.
We offer a range of services from removal of ingrowing toenails, excision of problem skin lesions if medically necessary, diagnostic biopsies and other procedures. Please discuss your needs with your doctor.
