Our team of nurses offer clinics and advice on the following:

You can book an appointment for any of the above by telephoning the surgery on 0117 9352 318

 

Baby Immunisation Clinic

Baby immunisations commence at 8 weeks old and follow a programme of immunisations as recommended by the National guidelines. You will be sent an invitation when your baby is due their first immunisations.

Every child under the age of 5 will have a designated Health Visitor. They offer emotional support, health care and lifestyle advice to young families. This could be in your own home or in a variety of alternative settings, including the surgery or children’s centres. They work closely with the doctors, having regular meetings to ensure good co-ordination of your child’s care.

Routine Checks by the Doctor

You will be asked to take your child for routine check-ups with the doctor at 7 weeks. If you have any worries or queries concerning your child you can, of course, discuss them with the doctor or health visitor at any time.

Immunisation Schedule

 

Dressing Clinics

Dressing clinics are available for patients who may require a longer appointment or specialist treatment regarding their dressings.

 

Health Promotion

Promoting good health is very important and we try to make the most up-to-date information available to our patients via this site and in the ‘Health Information Area’ in the waiting room at the surgery.

All new patients on registering with the surgery will be asked to complete a health questionnaire. The nurses will then check through this and offer an appointment if necessary. Please provide as much information as possible.

 

Smoking

In this clinic we offer advice on how to give up smoking, offer follow up appointments and prescribe Nicotine Replacement Therapy or Zyban (no smoking drug) as appropriate.

 

Treatment Room

Our treatment room nurses offer a range of services such as smaller dressings, ear syringing and injections.

 

Weight Management / Healthy eating

Our Nurses can offer dietary advice on how to lose weight and a GP can prescribe drug therapy if thought appropriate. The British Nutrition Foundation can work out your Body Mass Index (BMI) .
