Clinics & Services

Antenatal Clinic baby_and_pregnant_mum.jpg

Our antenatal clinics are run by midwives at the surgery. We offer shared antenatal care between the midwife and the doctor. Sometimes patients will need to be seen in hospital as well. The doctor will arrange for referral to the hospital where necessary. Thereafter patients will normally be seen alternately between midwife and doctor or at 4-week intervals.

Breast Screening

All women will be called for screening between the ages of 47 and 70, with the first screen being before the age of 50, usually in the year they become 48. Routine Breast Screening examinations are held at Ipswich Hospital.

Cervical Screening

This will normally be carried out by the practice nurse. All patients are written to from the Cervical Screening Service with the result as soon as this is available - usually about 4 to 6 weeks but this varies from time to time. If you wish to discuss your results further, please make an appointment with your doctor.

Ear Syringing

To book an appointment for ear syringing the patient must first be assessed by a GP or Nurse practitioner to ensure that ear syringing is required. Once assessed the patient will need to follow the instructions in our patient information leaflet with regard to oiling ears prior to syringing.  

All patients must complete an assessment form which must be brought along to the ear syringing appointment.   Unfortunately the procedure cannot be carried out if the assessment form has not been completed.
