All of the following listed services are available as part of normal surgeries:

Book appointment with Practice Nurse via Reception.
The surgery-based Diabetes Clinic is run by Dr Mather and the surgery's a Practice Nurse. The Clinic provides the vast majority of care needed for patients with all types of diabetes mellitus. This includes insulin initiation and other types of care that in the past were provided in hospital-based clinics. The practice is able to offer this type of service as a result of Dr Mather's experience working in the Diabetes Centre in Worcester for 10 years and partly due to the upgraded skills of Debbie Hammond.
Bookings for this clinic are arranged by Miss Kirsty Jennings and any queries should be directed to her.
Our nurse practitioner is trained to teach female patients how to check for any changes in their breasts. If you notice any lumps please arrange to see your doctor as soon as possible.
Cancer of the cervix can be prevented and all female patients between twenty–one and sixty-four years are advised to have regular smear tests. These are important because they can detect early signs of disease, which is easily treated. A call and recall system is operated by the Health authority to remind you when your test is due. Please ask at reception for an appointment.

If you are not eligible for a free influenza vaccination you can obtain one for a charge at local chemists. Our reception staff are instructed to redirect to the chemist those patients who are not eligible.
