Clinics and Services
Chronic Disease Clinics
Special clinics for patients suffering from Chronic diseases such as Heart Disease, Hypertension, COPD and Diabetes are held at both surgeries. Patients suffering from chronic diseases will be offered an annual review with a specialist nurse. Appointments are usually arranged during your birthday month.
We offer Antenatal clinics at both sites led by Midwives Fleur Charlton (Portland) and Jackie Sumner (Hatherley).
Our nurses are trained to provide a number of services. Please call nurse reception if you require a service that is not listed here.
Family planning clinic
You can discuss you contraceptive requirements with any of the doctors or Nurse Practitioners. For routine ‘pill checks’ you can also book an appointment with any of our practice nurses.
Nurse Practitioner Sarah Gallagher and Dr Sally Davies are trained to fit contraceptive devices.
Please see our Sexual Health page from the Health & Lifestyle drop down menu for information on other services.
Tests can be performed by our practice nurses. Women should have a test every three years from the age of 25. You will be notified by letter when your smear test is due. If, after three notification letters and a doctor's letter, a patient fails to attend for a smear, the responsibility for the smear test will rest with that patient.
