- Menopause advice

- Flu And Pneumonia Injection Clinics
These are held each year, usually in September and October. These injections provide valuable protection against flu in at risk patients, such as patients with heart, lung and kidney problems, diabetics and the elderly.
The pneumonia injection is currently recommended for over 65s and younger people with certain medical conditions who are at risk.
The Department of Health states that we are not able to provide flu or pneumonia vaccination for our patients who do not fall into the above categories, but we will be able to advise you on where you will be able to obtain the vaccination.
Cervical Screening (Smear Tests)
All women aged 25 to 64 are offered a cervical smear test as part of the national cervical screening programme every 3 years from age 25-49 and every 5 years from age 50-64. Please note you will be invited by the screening programme and we can not take a smear without this invitation.
You can book an appointment with our Practice nurse. Alternatively, you can visit one of the local Pharmacies who offer private consultations, and speak with the Pharmacist, especially if you are in need of Emergency Contraception (Morning After Pill).
Services In Addition To The NHS
An appropriate fee will be charged for services carried out that are not part of the NHS. A list of fees is displayed in reception.
