All doctors are happy to review asthma during routine appointments but more time is available for explanation and teaching in the dedicated Asthma Clinic. More complex asthma patients are reviewed by our Specialist Respiratory Nurse, Cathy O'Brien, on Thursday afternoons.
Unfortunately there is currently no funding available for the provision of blood tests in our practice. However, the Practice offers a limited number of appointments with a phlebotomist on Thursdays for those patients who are unable to attend clinics at the local hospitals.
The Health Visiting Team will arrange routine screening by appointment. Where medical checks are required these will be done by your GP. Dr Wallbank runs a Post-Natal Clinic on Tuesday afternoons and Thursday mornings and initial 8 week baby checks are offered at the same time so that your baby can be given their first childhood immunisations at that point by the Practice Nurse.
It is important that we have up-to-date information on your child's immunisation history. Please discuss any concerns around immunisation with a doctor or nurse. Our practice nurses run dedicated clinics for childhood immunisations on Thursday and Fridays.

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:

The vast majority of the work that is carried out within general practice is paid for by the NHS. However, some activities are not covered by the NHS and the practice makes a charge to cover the costs involved.
