Clinics & Services

The practice believes in promoting better health, by advocating a healthy lifestyle, and by helping to prevent disease in the first place, and also by reducing the risk of complications in pre-existing disease.

Here are ways in which we can help:

  • girl_with_open_mouthChild Development.  The practice is involved in monitoring the development and welfare of young children.  The Health Visitors visit shortly after a baby has arrived home, and they will co-ordinate clinics etc.  The baby's own doctor will perform an examination in the surgery at about 6-8 weeks old, prior to the vaccination programme. The Health Visitors can be contacted 01252 533040
  • Childhood Immunisation. The practice runs its own immunisation clinics and children will be recalled to these at the appropriate time. The practice nurses will personally give the injections.
  • Cervical Smears. All women over the age of 24 are encouraged to have a smear test which is carried out 3 yearly until the age of 50, and 5 yearly beyond until the age of 65.  The practice will remind patients when this is due.  We employ trained nurses to run the smear clinic and doctors also take smears in surgery.  If you are in doubt whether your smear is due, just ask the receptionist. About 75% of eligible women in our practice have had a smear in the last 5 years.  Some of our nurses are also trained in contraception and are available for consultations or telephone advice.
  • Breast Screening. Women between the ages of 50 and 70 are recalled every 3 years for a mammogram at the InHealth Mobile Mammography Unit. Once you reach the age of 70 you are still able to continue with breast screening mammograms every 3 years but you will need to contact InHealth yourself to request an appointment. Call them on 0333 200 2062.  www.breast-screening.surrey.nhs.uk or www.inhealthgroup.com/services/breast-screening
  • If you are concerned about the possibility of a breast lump you should attend your own doctor, and not just rely on a recent or forthcoming mammogram.
  • Maternity Care. The practice carefully monitors the health of all pregnant mothers.  As soon as you are pregnant come and see your own doctor.  Most women will these days do a home pregnancy test which is extremely reliable.  So long as the pregnancy is uncomplicated you will be cared for largely by the midwife team, led by our practice Midwife.  We work closely with our local hospital, Frimley Park, and scans are carried out at 12 and 20 weeks to detect the risk of Downs Syndrome and spina bifida, as well as other abnormalities.  The idea of 'team midwifery' is that you will hopefully be delivered by a familiar professional.  Any medical problems are assessed by your own doctor and you will have a post-natal examination about 6 weeks after examination, in the surgery. syringe
  • Adult Vaccinations. Including an influenza programme starting in September each year and Pneumovax for protection against pneumococcal pneumonia


We also run the following Clinics:


  • Cardiovascular Clinic.  Those patients with high blood pressure, angina or a stroke, are followed up closely by their doctor or nurse.
  • Asthma Clinic.  All asthmatics are recalled at least once a year.  Their condition is assessed and the nurse is trained to improve inhaler technique. 
  • Travel Clinic. The practice provides information about medical aspects of foreign travel to registered patients and will vaccinate according to the latest advice. We are a registered Yellow Fever Centre. You do not have to be registered to receive this vaccine but patients must contact their own surgery for all other vaccines.

  • Quit Smoking Clinic. Stopping smoking is the most important thing you can do to improve your health. Stop smoking clinics are available to help you stop and give you a higher chance of success compared to trying on your own. Clinics are run locally and in severally local pharmacies.
