Blood tests (Phlebotomy)
This involves taking blood samples from patients to aid diagnosis and treatment for medical conditions.
Early appointments are available for patients who need a fasting blood test.
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: 1st invitation for a smear
- Age 25-49: Every 3 years
- Age 50-64: Every 5 years
- Age 65+: Only those who have not been screened since age 50 or have had abnormal test results.
About the Test
The test only takes a few minutes, and it could be a lifesaver. 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 Practice Nurse of your choice. The Health Authority will notify you of your smear result.
To find out more about having a cervical smear, please see your GP or contact our reception.
This clinic helps patients with diabetes to manage their blood sugar, medical condition and lead healthy, active lives.
Over 2 million people in England are living with diabetes, a condition which results in too much glucose (sugar) in the blood. To remain symptom-free people with diabetes must monitor their diets carefully and manage regular treatments such as injections and tablets.
To find out more, please speak to your GP or contact our reception for more information.
These can be done by a member of the nursing team throughout the day after being requested by your doctor.
Our family planning service covers advice and provision of all types of contraception from the Pill and condoms to fitting caps, implants and IUDs (coils). Your GP will discuss your requirements and recommend suitable methods for you.
