There is a district nurse team allocated to the practice. They provide nursing care for those patients of all age groups in their own home, to those patients who are housebound and need long term care, wound/ulcer dressing, insulin injections and care of patients who may be terminally ill.
The district nurses liaise with your doctor, other members of the healthcare team and social services to ensure the best possible care is provided.

Mother & Baby Checks
These are carried out during a GP appointment when the baby is 6-8 weeks old. The immunisations necessary will be done by the nurse at a separate appointment.
These are the routine vaccinations that are offered free of charge on the NHS to all babies and children in the UK which are provided by the practice. Other vaccines as your child gets older are provided at school.
If you require travel vaccinations please make an appointment six weeks prior to travel. A charge will be made for certain immunisations that are not covered by the NHS. Find out more in our Travel Room.
Every other Thursday in the afternoon.
We offer a blood test service at the practice between 07.30 and 11.30 Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week. You must be referred by the GP or nurse to have a blood test and you must contact the surgery to book your appointment. Remember to bring your blood form along with you to your appointment.
You can book your appointment online as long as you have got a blood test form.
