Anti - Coagulation Clinic
If you are on Warfarin, you will understand the importance of regular monitoring of your blood.
We run a clinic on a Tuesday afternoon to monitor this. The clinic is run by Mrs Pam Myers and supervised by Dr Chris Lord.
We have a very popular clinic for the under 5’s at 3:30 - 3:45 every afternoon except Wednesday. You do not need an appointment for this clinic. Your child will be seen quite quickly.

We also offer full post-natal checks for new mums and babies around the 6 week post natal period. You would normally get an appointment for this automatically but if you think there is a problem please contact us.
Travel Health & Holiday Vaccinations

Cervical smears are extremely important for all women between the ages of 25-65 years.
The regular uptake of cervical smears can dramatically reduce your chances of developing cervical cancer.
The test is simple and the appointment lasts for about 15 minutes.
All our practice nurses are fully trained in taking smears and results are carefully monitored.
