Services We Offer

Family Planning

Our Nurse Practitioner and Specialist Nurses provide advice on all methods of contraception including pills, coils, implants and condoms.

Chiropody

We have two Chiropodists who see patients at our Moor Park Surgery.  Please note this is a private service and therefore there is a charge.  For more information and to book an appointment, please contact Reception.

Baby Clinics & Child Health Surveillance

The Doctors are involved in carrying out 8 week assessments.  The Practice nurses carry out routine childhood immunisations and these are by appointment only on a Wednesday and Thursday morning.

Vaccinations and Travel Advice

The Practice Nurses are available by appointment to give advice on routine immunisation and travel vaccinations. Most immunisations are available without prescription. Please allow at least 8 weeks before you are due to travel.  Please contact the appointments line if you require an appointment to discuss travel vaccination.

Flu, Pneumococcal and Shingles Vaccinations

In accordance with Department Of Health Guideline we recommend an annual flu vaccination for patients aged 65 years and over and patients with chronic heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes and residents of nursing and residential homes.

Annual vaccinations start early October. All patients who have chronic heart, lung, liver, renal (kidney) disease, on immune suppressing therapy (steroids and chemotherapy), diabetes, sickle cell disease sufferers, HIV positive patients, organ (inc bone marrow) transplant recipients and those have no spleen are recommended to receive vaccination to protect against infection with the “pneumococcus”, the commonest bacteria involved in pneumonia and other respiratory infections. All patients over 65 years of age are strongly advised to have pneumococcal vaccinations.

Cervical Screening (Smear tests)

There is a “call and recall” system to remind you about “smear tests” which are carried out by appointment with the Practice Nurses. Women aged 25-49 years will be recalled every 3 years for routine tests, or as directed by the laboratory analysing the tests. Women aged between 50-64 years will be recalled every 5 years.

Chronic Disease Management
