Clinics & Services

These are run by our Health Visitors every Tuesday and Thursday from 1.30pm-3.15pm. Our Practice Nurses are also available to give child immunisations on Tuesday afternoon (by appointment). Every week one of the Doctors is available to perform 8 week baby checks. Appointments for the 8 week checks are arranged for you by our administration team.

The Doctors and Practice Nurses offer a range of family planning advice during their routine surgeries. A wide range of family planning services, including IUD and IUS (coil) and contraceptive implant insertion and removal, are available. Screening for STIs (including chlamydia) is also available. All consultations are treated in the strictest confidence.

Practice Nurses/Doctors will see registered and non-registered patients for emergency contraception. It is important that you are seen as soon as possible. If a routine appointment is not available please explain why you need to see the Nurse/Doctor, and the receptionists will do their best to arrange an appointment for you.

Our Practice Nurses provide a confidential service to everyone under 25, including under 16s, whether registered at the Practice or not. They can give information about sexual health such as contraception, sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy, and give emergency after sex contraception. Condoms are available free of charge – you just need to show your C card to the receptionist.
Some of our Nurses and Doctors are able to register patients for a C card, which will allow you to collect free condoms from 4YP registered services. Please ask at reception if you would like to register for a C card so that they can book you in with the right clinician.
For more information about 4YP go to www.4ypbristol.co.uk

All eligible women between the ages of 25 and 64 are advised to have a cervical cancer smear test - every 3 years up to age 50 and every 5 years over 50.
The national screening programme has a computerised call and recall system, and will send regular invitations to attend. Appointments can be made with our Practice Nurses by contacting reception.

Several of our Doctors are qualified to carry out minor surgery.

One of our Practice Nurses runs a cryotherapy clinic.

Our Community Midwives work with the Doctors to provide antenatal and postnatal care for our patients. Pre-pregnancy information and advice can be discussed with the Doctor or Midwife by appointment. It is important that you contact the surgery once you know you are pregnant to find out how you can make an appointment with the Midwife.

Our Practice Nurses run annual flu clinics. All patients with asthma, diabetes, kidney disease, immuno-suppressed illnesses, chronic breathing problems and coronary heart disease are advised to have an annual flu vaccination, as well as carers, pregnant women and all patients aged 65 or over. Pneumonia vaccinations are also advised for these patient groups; unlike the flu vaccination which is given annually, the pneumonia vaccination is only given once. Appointments can be made by contacting reception.

Private examinations and reports are not covered by the NHS. Doctors will provide these wherever possible (there will be a charge). Examinations can be arranged by contacting reception to make an appointment.
