Blood & Smear Tests
Blood Tests are available Monday to Friday pre-booked appointments only. These can be booked with on-line if you are set up to use these services or via our website. These appointments are for patients aged 16 years and over.
Blood tests are done by the nurse and you must have a form or have been advised by the GP or nurse to have a test. If you are advised that you need a fasting blood test this means that you cannot have anything to eat or drink apart from water for 12hours before the test.
There is a machine in our waiting room in the surgery that you can use to take your blood pressure, record your height, weight and BMI. You are welcome to use this when the practice is open. Please present to reception who will issue you with a token and instructions to use the machine.
These are used to screen for cervical cancer. By detecting this early it can be better treated. Women will be sent reminders for regular smear tests once over the age of 25. Routine smear tests would be every 3 years until the age of 50, after that it will be every 5 years. Smear tests are usually performed by the nurse.
Child Health & Immunisation
Baby clinics are run by most of the doctors for child developmental checks and immunisations. They also allow an opportunity to discuss other problems e.g. sleeping, feeding and child health worries, with a doctor or health visit.
