Requesting Clinics and Services

If you would like to request an appointment for any of our clinics and services, please make an appointment in the following ways:

Please visit our Health Review and Assessment Clinic if you have been advised by the surgery to complete a health review or assessment.

Our surgery offers the following clinics and healthcare services:

Maternity

Our district midwives co-ordinate maternity care in the practice. If you have a positive home pregnancy test, please contact reception to book your first appointment with the midwife.

They can arrange a referral to the hospital when necessary. Your antenatal and postnatal care will be shared between the midwife and your own doctor.

Ladies hoping to conceive, or in early pregnancy, are advised to obtain folic acid and vitamin D supplements from a pharmacy. To find your local pharmacy, please use our Local Pharmacy Locator Tool.

Child Health and Immunisation

We recommend full immunisation for all pre-school children, commencing at 2 months. The Child Health Development based in Ipswich sends out appointments.

Please let our own Care Navigators know if you are unable to attend. Your health visitors offer developmental and health checks for infants and children and will refer you to your doctor when relevant.

Women’s Health

Most women aged between 25 and 64 should have a cervical screening taken every 3 to 5 years. This is to detect any changes in the cells of the cervix which might lead to the development of cancer.

Early detection can prevent this happening. You will receive a reminder but please contact us if you think your recall is overdue.

We do have clinicians trained in family planning if you would like to discuss your options.

Sexual Health for Young People

We are committed to reducing teenage pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections, and as part of a local initiative, our doctors and nurses are able to provide free condoms to under 23’s.

A chlamydia screening service is available to anyone aged 24 and under. Please request a self-testing kit at the surgery. It is a fully confidential service.

For more information, please visit www.icash.nhs.uk.

Smoking Cessation

Our practice nurses or our health care assistant, offer support to anyone wishing to give up smoking. We also have a trained smoking cessation advisor from OneLife Suffolk available. If you have been advised by the surgery to, please use our Smoking Review form.

Minor Surgery

Some minor surgical procedures can be undertaken at the surgery. Your usual doctor can discuss this with you when relevant.
