In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a comprehensive range of clinics and healthcare services:
The following clinics are available by appointment with the practice nurses/assistant practitioners: Asthma, Smoking Cessation, Weight Reduction, Hypertension, Heart Disease Prevention, Diabetes, and Well Person. If you have a family history of cardiovascular disease or diabetes you will be advised about these conditions.
There may be occasions when the doctor requests that you have a blood test, similarly you may have an illness or be on certain medication which requires you to have regular blood tests. Blood tests are carried out by the practice nurse or assistant practitioner and if you need a blood test please book an appointment at reception.
It is recommended that people over the age of 65 years and anyone with a heart or lung condition, diabetes or any other debilitating illness have a pneumococcal and an influenza vaccination once a year. These vaccinations are usually carried out at the end of September. If you need a flu vaccination then please contact reception around the beginning of September to book an appointment. We do follow government guidelines regarding these vaccination protocols
We carry out a full range of contraceptive services including fitting coils, diaphragms, emergency post coital contraception, depo-provera injections and implants which are done by Dr Owen and Dr Rafferty. In addition to this regular check-ups are carried out for those who are on the pill. A regular cervical smear every three years is an important part of every woman’s health, as it helps prevent serious disease (It doesn’t hurt). Please make an appointment with the practice nurse if you need one.
The practice takes part in the national mammogram programme which offers three yearly screening to all women between the ages of 50 and 70 years old. However all women should be aware of breast changes and if you have any concerns please make an appointment to discuss the matter with one of the doctors.
This is held at Clarendon Surgery every Thursday morning 9.30 - 12.00. The doctor and Practice Nurse are both there and can provide information, advice and support to mothers.

Baby immunisations are also carried out during normal practice nurse sessions for those people who are unable to attend the baby clinic sessions.

If you have any lumps or bumps that you would like removed or which are causing a problem please make an appointment with one of the doctors in the first instance to ensure that this does not require a referral to the hospital.
