Child Welfare Clinics
Developmental checks are offered to all infants. Invitations to this clinic are sent by the Health Visitors.
Clinics are held each week and are run by our trained diabetic nurses.
Family Planning Clinic
A full family planning service is offered at the surgery on Monday evenings. Consultations are with a female GP and include the fitting of caps and coils and the insertion and removal of Implanon contraceptive implants.
Patients may consult their own GP for the oral contraceptive pill, or morning after pill within normal surgery hours but not all GPs fit coils or Implanon.
Our nurse-run family planning clinic, held with appointments on various days, deals with pill and coil checks and gives general contraceptive advice.
Flu vaccination clinics
Due to coronavirus, the government has this year increased the number of people eligible for an NHS flu vaccination. As well as those aged over 65 or in high risk groups, people aged between 50-64 who are healthy will be invited for a free flu jab for the first time.
St Mary's Surgery strongly encourages everyone who is eligible for an NHS flu job to get vaccinated. This will not only help protect them this winter, but also their families and the NHS.
The surgery's vaccination programme will be a phased roll out in line with vaccine deliveries. Our flu clinics are run at weekends so that we can safely manage larger numbers of people coming into the building. Patient safety continues to be a priority for us all and all patients coming for their flu vaccinations will be screened on entry to the building, including having their temperatures taken at the door. Social distancing rules will be followed and there will be a one-way route for each patient through the surgery.
St Mary's flu clinics are expected to run through the autumn and into winter. The next dates are 17th October and 7th November. More dates will be released in due course.
If you are signed up to receive text messages from us, we will contact you when you are due your flu jab. All you then need to do is contact us to book your clinic date and time.
To book your appointment, please phone us (select option 1 at the menu) or contact us through askmyGP.
The pneumococcal vaccination is now part of the childhood immunisation programme and it is also offered to all patients over the age of 65 and those under the age of 65 who are at increased risk of developing pneumonia. It is usually a single vaccination.
Please check with the surgery if you do not believe you have been vaccinated and think you need to be.
Dr Knight is qualified to perform minor surgery. Any such requests must be arranged with a doctor.
