Clinics & Services
These are run by the practice nursing team, though the diabetes specialist nurse from St George's Hospital is often in attendance. Appointments are by invitation only. If you have diabetes you will be referred to the clinic by your doctor or practice nurse.
Antenatal appointments are to be made with a GP in routine surgery. The first consultation and all postnatal consultations require a double appointment. Please inform the receptionist at time of booking.
The baby clinics are run by a doctor and health visitor for child development checks and immunisation and also allow an opportunity to discuss other problems, e.g. sleeping, feeding and child health worries. Eight week checks are by booked appointment with the doctor and practice nurse. Mothers should make the appointment at least one week ahead and the baby MUST be 8 weeks or just over. We will not immunise babies under 8 weeks old. On Wednesday mornings there is a health visitor-led clinic for weighing and advice.
Asthma check appointments are to be made routinely with a practice nurse. Please make a double appointment.
