Blood tests (Phlebotomy)
Monday and Thursday
This clinic is run for the purpose of taking blood from patients as requested by your doctor to help aid diagnosis and treatment for medical conditions.
Early appointments are avaliable for patients who need a fasting blood test.
| || || Cervical smears |
A smear test is a simple and usually painless examination to check the health of a woman’s cervix (the entrance to the womb). We recommend every woman who is or has been sexually active have regular smears:
Age 25-50: every 3 years
Age 51-65: every 5 years
The test only takes a few minutes, and it could be a life saver. By detecting pre-cancerous cells, a smear test can cut the risk of cancer by up to 91%. If you are anxious or embarrassed about the personal nature of this procedure we can help you to overcome this. We also offer a chaperone service should you need it.
We use a computerised system that will automatically remind you when your smear is due. When you receive this, please make an appointment with the GP or practise nurse of your choice. The Health Authority will notify you of your smear result.

Our Child Development Clinic gives our health visitors the chance to see how your baby, toddler or child is developing for their age. The clinic also gives you the chance to ask questions and gain any help, reassurance or guidance you need as a parent.
Every child is different and achieves new skills at varying ages. The checks we do are for general health as well as:
• Big physical skills, such as walking, throwing, kicking
• Small physical skills, such as turning pages and using a pencil
• Vision and object recognition
• Hearing and communicating
• Social skills
We also carry out childhood vaccinations.
