Noticeboard

There is currently a three month wait for heart monitor results.

It is vital that you keep the surgery up to date with your current contact details as occasions can arise when we might need to contact you urgently. Increasingly we are using text to communicate reminders and other updates to parents/carers and we need your current mobile number to do this. 

From the 1st February 2019, all sick note requests must be made by the patient themselves. A form can be completed at the surgery and will be placed through to the GP who will decide if they are able to issue this to you. It will take three days to process your request. 

The High Street and Whitfield Surgeries have a Patient Participation Group, If you wish to join please contact Sarah Jarvis on 01304 206463, She  will be happy to help you.

All our patients now have an allocated GP, if you are unsure who your GP is please feel free to contact the practice. A member of our reception team will be happy to help you.

Clinics & Services

Family Planning

All the doctors are qualified to provide a full range of contraceptive services which are available free of charge at an ordinary appointment. This includes emergency morning after pill. We also provide a coil fitting clinic once a month with Dr Stevens. Please ask at reception for more details or to make an appointment.

Cervical Smear Tests

Smear tests for women involve examination of the cervix (neck of the womb) to check for changes which can occur. This test is usually done mid-cycle by the Practice Nurse. We recommend that all women aged between 25 and 64 years have a smear taken every three years. 

The computer recall system should ensure that all eligible women receive a reminder when they are due for a smear. Please respond promptly to avoid unnecessary administration. You will be notified by the William Harvey Hospital Laboratory of your result directly to your home address.

We currently hold a Baby Clinic on a Thursday morning with a GP and Practice Nurse. Appointments are generated and sent out to all babies and children. 

Babies who are unwell should not come to the Clinic but should be seen by their own doctor in surgery.
