The health visitors and a doctor run this clinic to detect any health problems that your child may have as early as possible.
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.

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:
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
Patients may see a nurse or health care assistant for advice, support, nicotine replacement and medication for stopping smoking. Further information about local stopping smoking and local services can be found at smokefree NHS.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
