Treatment Room procedures

 You may book an appointment with a nurse for cervical smears, removal of stitches, immunisation for babies, dressings for wounds, vaginal swabs, etc.

Contraceptive services and minor operations:

 We provide full range of contraceptive services including implants and coils for which you need to see the doctors and nurses in surgery before the procedure can be carried out. You need to see a doctor for Minor operations such as joint injection and removal of skin tags, small lumps, etc.

Monitoring of chronic conditions

 Anyone with a condition such as hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, asthma, chronic lung problems, heart disease (previous stroke or heart attack), underactive thyroid or epilepsy are required to attend the surgery on a regular basis (as discussed with your healthcare professional) to have any checks and investigations for you carried out.

 Most checks for conditions are carried out on once a year to check that your symptoms are under control and you do not have any problems with your medication. Please book an appointment after April each year. Please do not wait for an invitation to book your appointment.

 It is very important to keep these appointments when they are arranged, please notify us if you cannot attend and rebook your appointment.

 You need to bring all your medications with you at the time of your appointment.

Travel immunisations

We no longer provide travel immunisation services. There are alternative providers in Peterborough including Chemists and Supermarkets. Please do your research and chose the best option according to your needs.

Seasonal flu vaccine

 Each year the seasonal flu vaccine is delivered after the 15th of October.

 Any patient over 65 or with asthma, COPD, diabetes, and certain heart conditions is welcome to come in for a seasonal flu vaccination on any morning between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m.

Services for women

 Pill checks: We also invite women who are taking the contraceptive pill to attend the surgery for a yearly “pill check” and to discuss alternatives such as the implant and the coil which are long term reversible contraception methods.

 When you are pregnant: A trained midwife is attached to the practice who provides complete maternity care in association with the doctor. If you present yourself to the practice we will inform the midwife who will contact you – she books her own appointments.

 Cervical smear appointment: There are national screening programmes in England to screen for cervical cancer and breast cancer. All women between age 25-65 are eligible to have cervical smear which can detect early cancer or changes leading to cancer before this becomes dangerous – please keep your appointment for a smear if it has been booked.

 Breast mammogram: Helps to detect breast cancer before it becomes obvious to you – women are sent appointments after age 50 every 3 years – please keep the appointment when you receive one.
