GP Services are busier than ever before! Delivering more appointments but in a different way. For an explanation please see Latest News on the right of the screen. 

All the healthcare staff working in general practice are facing a big increase in demand for their services, so your patience is really appreciated.

Clinics & Services

In addition to the normal surgeries held we provide a range of clinics and services aimed at keeping you healthy and improving your wellbeing. Please specify if you need an appointment for any of the clinics.

Well Women Clinics

The practice nurses hold regular clinics for advice on all methods of family planning (including injections, the coil and ‘morning after’ contraception), pregnancy counselling, cervical smear tests, the menopause and HRT, hormone implants and post-natal checks.

Ante-Natal Clinics

Our team of practice midwives hold weekly ante-natal clinics at Burvill House Surgery on Monday andTuesday afternoons. 

Baby and Toddler Clinics

The Health visitors run weekly clinics for babies and toddlers on Thursday mornings from 10:00 – 11:30. No appointment is necessary for weighing and general advice, but you do need to arrange one for immunisations and developmental checks. To prevent spread of infections, unwell babies should not be brought to this clinic. 

CHD and Diabetic Clinics

All patients with coronary heart disease or diabetes need regular check-ups. Doctors and the practice nurses run fortnightly diabetic and CHD clinics. Patients are called to these clinics for their reviews according to their medical requirements. We also have the services of a Diabetic Nurse Specialist who will assist the Doctors with the more complicated diabetic cases. 

Asthma and COPD Clinics

People with asthma also benefit from coming to a clinic. The practice nurses manage the appointments and have a recall system for all patients suffering from respiratory disease. We have the services of a COPD Nurse Specialist to see patients with this condition on a regular basis. 

Minor Surgery and Cryotherapy

All of our doctors are qualified to perform minor surgery and joint injections. We also use liquid nitrogen (cryotherapy) to treat warts and some other skin conditions. Please see a doctor first to discuss treatment options. 


Travel Immunisations, tetanus and polio boosters, babies’ and children’s immunisations (including the MenC vaccine) and flu jabs are all given by the practice nurse and, with the exception of yellow fever are all free.
