Cervical Smear Testing

Smear tests are conducted by our Practice Nurses, and the Cytology Department in Leicester will send you a reminder when you are next due – normally 3 yearly for women aged 25-45, and 5 yearly for those over 45, unless advised differently by your GP.

When making an appointment, please specify that it is for a smear test.


Diabetes & Coronary Heart Disease

A diabetic clinic is held every Tuesday, for those patients whose condition has stabilised and who are not required to attend the hospital outpatient clinic.

This clinic is run by a GP and a Practice Nurse, and all CHD patients will be invited to arrange an appointment with a practice nurse.

Diabetic patients and CHD patients will be referred by their doctors to this clinic for an annual screening check.


Family Planning Clinic

Family planning advice is available with the practice nurses, but you are also free to seek family planning advice by seeing your own doctor in normal surgery time.


Immunisation

Routine immunisations for children are organised through the Leicestershire Immunisation Department. An appointment card will be sent to you through the post.

  1. Immunisation clinics are held Mon-Fri when available

If you have any questions about immunisations please speak to the receptionist or practice nurse.


Travel

A travel clinic is held weekly to give advice and to arrange the necessary immunisations for those people traveling abroad. Please allow plenty of time before traveling, as some courses of injections take up to 3 months to complete.

You will need to complete a ‘travel form‘ which is obtainable at the reception desk or you can complete online; this must be completed before making an appointment with the nurse.

Please note that travel vaccinations do not form a part of General Medical Services and will normally have to be paid for prior to any programme of immunisations beginning. The reception staff will advise at the time of making any bookings.
