Clinics & Services
In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a comprehensive range of clinics and healthcare services:
Chronic Disease Management
- Heart disease
If you have one of these diseases we offer regular monitoring consultations with nurses specially trained in those fields. You will be sent a letter inviting you to attend for a thorough health check and lifestyle advice. We advise patients to take up these appointments even if they are regularly seeing a GP.
These are available each morning, by appointment with our phlebotomist at the practice. Alternatively you can attend the Pathology Department at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital between 9 and 4 on a week day without appointment.
We operate an automatic recall system and all eligible women should receive a reminder when they are due for a smear. If you are concerned about having a smear please talk to your doctor.
Various minor operations may be undertaken within the surgery. This will need to be discussed with your GP initially and an appointment for the procedure will usually be offered within a week or two.
All GPs in the practice can offer help with contraception including prescribing the pill and also fitting coils (IUDs)
This clinic is run by the midwives. If you become pregnant, you should first consult a GP, who will then arrange for you to be given a booking appointment with the midwife. You will be seen regularly throughout your pregnancy at either the surgery or the hospital.
Child health and Immunisations
All new babies are invited for regular check-ups and offered the recommended schedule of immunisations by appointment. An open access clinic for queries about your baby's health is available on Tuesdays 09:30 – 10:30 at Muscliffe Primary School, staffed by the health visitors.
General Nursing Services
Including ear syringing, minor injuries, first aid and general health advice.
Please complete a travel form (available from reception or to download) if you are querying about immunisations and malaria treatment for travel abroad. You will be offered an appointment to provide the recommended regimes. In some cases these items are not available under the NHS and you will be advised of the charges.
Please ask if you would like help with giving up.
