Current guidance suggests that all women between the ages of 25 and 49 years should have a smear test once every three years. Those aged 50 to 64 should be screened every five years and those aged 65 and over should only be screened if they have not been screened since aged 50 or have had a recent abnormal result. These tests are to detect the early signs of cancer of the cervix which can be successfully treated at this stage. Please note that the test also picks up other non-cancerous conditions. We have a recall system and women are invited by letter or telephone call to attend when their smear test is due. Results are usually available in four to six weeks.
See our health promotion page for more information on cervical smears.
Diabetic Eye Screening
Previously, diabetic patients were able to see their optician for their annual eye screening. This is no longer possible; diabetic patients now need to be seen by the centralised service, currently at St Peter's.
Not all the services that we provide are done under the NHS and some services may incur a fee. These include medicals for occupational reasons, passport applications, private sick notes and insurance forms. Please ask at reception for details if you think you may incur a fee.
The practice offers a minor surgery service including removal of small skin lumps, freezing warts, joint injections etc. Patients should make an appointment in the usual way and, following their initial consultation, will be invited to have the minor operation performed. We also offer this service for patients from other practices following a referral from that patient's own GP.
