Clinics & Services
The doctors, with the assistance of the community midwife, provide maternity services including ante-natal and post-natal care, consultant shared care and midwife led care.
The doctors will be pleased to provide confidential contraceptive advice during surgery appointments. Emergency contraception is also available. Trained practice nurses can advise on contraception and a full range of contraceptive services are provided.
A cervical smear is recommended as a routine measure every three years for all women between the ages of 25 to 50 years old and every five years for women over 50. This service is provided by our practice nurses by appointment and as part of a well woman check. Patients are informed by post of their result.
We wish to support women (inclusive of trans and non-binary) so that cervical smears are a positive experience. If you are able, please could you complete the following survey https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8GC5F7F which will help us to understand people's experiences.
If you have any issues, past or present, with cervical screening experiences and prefer not to complete the survey but would like a friendly listening ear, please contact Helen.firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to discuss your experiences with you.
All women at the practice aged between 50 and 71 are invited for breast screening (mammography) every three years. Women over 71 can ask the doctor to refer them for screening or self refer. Patients are informed by post of their result.
Minor injuries (small cuts, sprains, insect stings, etc.) can now be treated at the surgery. There might be a wait to be seen. Serious injuries (including broken bones) should attend A&E at Ipswich Hospital.
A clinic for the treatment of warts, verrucae and other suitable lesions is held on a regular basis. Please ask at reception for further details
Care of the Elderly
All patients on long-term regular medication are advised to attend for six-monthly medication reviews.
