Our Clinics & Services

 

New Registration Medicals

 

All new patients registering with the practice are invited to attend for a registration medical. We hope you will make use of this service and help us by filling in a simple questionnaire on your past medical history, before attending.

 

Antenatal Care

 

This is available from your doctor here at the surgery and the midwife who is based at Bedale Health Clinic. The initial appointment with the midwife is booked here at the surgery but the actual appointment to see the midwife is always at Bedale Health Clinic. Follow up appointments are made by the midwife.

 

Child Health (including Surveillance)

 

All the doctors look after babies and children and see children for Child Health Surveillance in their surgeries. Health visitors attend and are also available for developmental checks and advice. The practice nurses immunise children.

 

Immunisation

 

Immunisation is encouraged for both adults and children. Please ask the receptionist for further details.

 

Children and Young People under 14 years

 

We would very much prefer to see children accompanied by their parents, except in exceptional circumstances.

 

Cervical Smears

 

This is a simple test, which detects changes in the neck of the womb, which may lead to cancer in later years if not treated. It is usually performed by the practice nurse, or your doctor if you prefer. The criteria for routine smears is currently undergoing change. Women are being screened from 25 years to 65 years. For those aged between 25 years to 49 years, routine screening will be performed every 3 years, for those aged between 50 years to 65 years, routine screening will be performed every 5 years.

 

Family Planning Services

 

Contraceptive services are available from your doctor upon request. Dr Laura Mezas fits coils and Dr Rachael Emison fits contraceptive implants.

For advice regarding foreign travel and immunization before foreign travel, please make an appointment to see the practice nurse, allowing at least eight weeks for the immunisations.

If you are a smoker and would like to quit, please ask at reception for further information. All our medical staff are happy to provide information or referrals to smoking cessation clinics or support networks.

We offer an annual health check to all patients over 75 years of age, who have not consulted one of our medical practitioners during the year. The health visitor will be happy to see you, or visit you in your home, to discuss your general health and well-being.

NHS Health Checks for 40-70 year olds

Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes or kidney disease.  But these diseases can often be prevented, and NHS Health Check can help by assessing the risk and giving personalised advice on how to reduce it.  Please ring the surgery to book an appointment to see the Health Care Assistant regarding this if you are not seen at the surgery in any chronic disease clinic.
