Cervical Smears

These are performed by our practice nurses by appointment. If you are a woman aged between 20 and 64, we advise you to have regular cervical smears - three yearly between ages 25 and 50 and five yearly between 51 and 64.

Please make an appointment with a practice nurse for a smear in the middle part of your menstrual cycle - ideally days 10 to 14. 

Childhood Immunisations

We offer baby and childhood immunisations.

You can book your child's immunisations at Reception with any of our Practice Nurses or contact us online

It's important that vaccines are given on time for the best protection, but if you or your child misses a vaccine, please contact us to arrange a catch-up appointment.
