Child Health Development Clinic
Child health surveillance checks are arranged for all children registered with this practice and are performed by Dr Whyte and our local health visitors. These take place at the age of eight weeks.
A principal clinical psychologist holds a clinic within the medical centre every Thursday.Patients are referred to the clinical psychologist after consultation with the doctor.
All doctors offer counselling appointments where patients may benefit from more than the routine 10 minute appointment. The decision is made by the doctor as to which patients should be allocated a longer consultation. A locality counsellor holds a clinic every Wednesday morning. The counsellor can help with depression, relationship problems, anxieties, stress, bereavement, coping with life crises, self-confidence and self-image. Referrals are made as necessary by the GP. However, anything talked about in a session is completely confidential unless otherwise agreed with the counsellor.
Nurse-led emergency contraception appointments are available daily. You may also attend any pharmacy for this.
The practice is pleased to give advice on family planning including the insertion of coils and the contraceptive implant. We operate a computerised recall system for cervical smear tests. Cervical smears should be carried out every three years for women aged 25 to 60.
The Practice Nurse carries out childhood immunisations. Please phone to book these appointments as they are in set clinics.
