Clinics & Services
Attendance is by appointment.
Mums-to-be with no health concerns need not see a doctor. Please leave your name with reception or let us know and a midwife will contact you to arrange an appointment. Click here for advice about diet and lifestyle before and during pregnancy.
Joint clinic run by health visitors and GPs. Please remember to bring your baby’s red book.
Run by our practice nurses. We normally see patients with asthma and COPD at least once a year even if the patient has been well. Regular monitoring helps us to anticipate and hopefully avoid problems before they arise.
Child Health Surveillance Clinic
The health visitors and a doctor run this clinic to detect any health problems that your child may have as early as possible.
Heart Save Clinic
We participate in a Stockport programme to identify people who are at particular risk of heart disease so that we can try to help those people reduce their risk of a heart attack or stroke.
A nurse and a doctor run this clinic. Many of our diabetic patients can be cared for by the practice rather than at hospital outpatient clinics. We have more time and can offer more thorough care for diabetic patients at this clinic rather than just seeing these patients in our ordinary surgeries.
All of our doctors would be happy to discuss your family planning needs. If you are interested in an IUCD (coil), IUS (Mirena) or contraceptive implant (Nexplanon), please make a telephone appointment with Dr McEwan.
One of our nurses runs a travel clinic and can discuss your vaccination needs for holidays or your job. Please speak to reception. Please state the date of travel and destination. See Fit for Travel for more details on what vaccinations you might require.
These can be done at the surgery. UK Immunisation Schedule.
Minor Surgery and Cryotherapy
We operate regular clinics for minor surgery: Removal of lumps and bumps, freezing of verrucas and other skin lesions, joint injections.
Patients Over 75 Years
If you are aged 75 years or over, you should be seen annually either by your doctor, the practice nurse, district nurse or health visitor. This can be arranged at the surgery or, if that is not possible, a home visit will be arranged.
Seasonal Influenza And Pneumonia Vaccine
In accordance with Department of Health guidelines, we recommend an influenza and pneumonia vaccination for patients over 65 and all patients over 6 months in a clinical risk group:
- Chronic respiratory disease, eg. Asthma, COPD, chronic bronchitis/emphysema, children previously admitted to hospital with serious lung infections.
- Chronic heart disease, eg. Past heart attack, angina, heart bypass, heart failure.
- Chronic kidney disease
- Chronic liver disease
- Chronic neurological conditions, eg. Past stroke or TIA (mini-stroke), Parkinson’s disease.
- Immune problems or those on medication which suppresses immune system. eg. Chemotherapy, azathioprine, methotrexate, long term steroids.
- Pregnant women, including those who have recently been pregnant or given birth.
- Patients living in a nursing or care home.
Influenza and pneumonia vaccination may be offered to people who are in receipt of a carer’s allowance, or those who are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if the carer falls ill. This is at the GP’s discretion, in the context of other clinical risk groups in their practice. People who are employed as a carer should be provided with the appropriate vaccinations by their employer. If you are eligible for the flu vaccination, please print off this form and bring it with you on either of our open flu clinics as listed in the noticeboard. Flu Vaccination Questionnaire
