We run a large number of clinics for particular patient groups - the list is long, but if you cannot find the information you are looking for below, please do phone through and ask us!
Antenatal Care - the Daisy team midwives offer total care for pregnancy, birth and the post-natal period.
Asthma and COPD - our specialist respiratory nurses, Kathryn and Annabel, help to diagnose and monitor patients and they work closely with the doctors to optimise treatment plans for each individual patient. We recommend annual respiratory reviews for all our asthma and COPD patients.
Blood tests - clinics run every day with our healthcare assistants, Terry and Sarah. We make sure patients who have to fast overnight for their blood tests are seen early!
Bowel Cancer Screening - with the GUTS (Guildford Undetected Tumour Screening) programme. The GUTS test is recommended for patients over the age of 50 with either bowel or abdominal symptoms or a family history of bowel cancer. Please ask our practice nurses for more details.
Cervical Smears - the first invitation for a cervical smear will be sent to you at age 25, followed by an invitation for a routine retest every 3 years for women aged 25-49, every 5 years for women aged 50-64. Patients over 65 will be invited if they have not been screened since age 50 or have had recent abnormal tests. Cervical smears are carried out by the practice nurses.
Chlamydia screening - self-testing kits are available for both males and females - please ask if you would like one. The confidential result will be sent to you at home. More details can be found at gocheckyourself.com
Diabetic Clinic - run by our specialist practice nurses who are trained in diabetic care and who liaise closely with the doctors, dietician and hospital diabetic nurses. We ask our diabetic patients to have their annual feet, eye and blood tests before coming to their full diabetic check-up, so the results can be discussed.
Family Planning - for contraceptive advice, depot injections, implanon and coil fitting. Dr Christie, Dr Turner and Dr Kacker provide the coil-fitting service. If you are interested in having one, please make a routine appointment to discuss it with one of them first and they will then arrange a suitable time for the fitting if it is appropriate for you. Please make your pill check appointments with our family planning nurses.
Hypertension Clinic - our Healthcare Assistants monitor patients who have straightforward hypertension. They work with the doctors and nurses to help make the diagnosis of hypertension, monitor control, and ensure routine blood, urine and ECG tests are up to date. We now carry out 24-hour blood pressure monitoring to aid in the diagnosis of high blood pressure.
Leg ulcer and wound care clinics - are run by our highly skilled District Nurses.
Minor surgery - Several of the GPs offer minor surgery and joint injection procedures. If you need a minor surgery procedure and it is appropriate to be done in Primary Care, we will arrange it for you in-house if at all possible.
