Home Visits

If a home visit is required, please make your request between 8.30am and 10.30am. Details will be then given to the duty doctor, who will then contact you by telephone.

Please do not request a home visit unless you or the patient are too ill to come to the practice. Remember, a doctor can see five patients at the surgery in the time it takes to attend one home visit. Please use the service responsibly.

In the event of a life threatening emergency, such as severe chest pain, extreme shortness of breath or collapse dial 999 to call an ambulance immediately.

3 C's - Chlamydia, Contraception and Condoms

Please don't be embarrassed to ask regarding any of the above, to any member of staff.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the UK, affecting both men and women. Most people who have it will have no symptoms, without a test you will probably not know anything is wrong. If you or your sexual partner are left untreated it can cause infertility (not being able to have children) and long term pelvic pain.  If you are under 25 years of age and are sexually active you should be tested for chlamydia.  The test is simple – just one quick and painless test that you do yourself. You do NOT need to be examined!  Please ask a clinician or pick up a testing kit in the toilets in reception, if you are aged between 15-24 years of age.  See the following website for more details on the chlamydia screening programme: http://www.chlamydiascreening.nhs.uk/index.htm.

Contraception

See our contraception page for more information Click here

Condoms

Contraception protects against unwanted pregnancy but condoms protect against STI's (sexually transmitted infections).  If you are aged between 15 and 24 years of age you are eligible for free condoms, please ask at reception or when seeing a clinician.
