Clinics We Offer
Cervical smears are recommended every 3 years from 25-50 years of age, and every 5 years from 50-65. You should be notified if your smear is due, but if in doubt, do ask.
Routine smears are performed by all our practice nurses. They can also be performed by any of the doctors.
We offer a fully comprehensive family planning service in normal surgery times. If required, a female doctor, nurse or nurse practitioner is generally available. Annual pill checks can be done by a practice nurse.
If you require a contraceptive coil or implant fitting, please discuss with your doctor or nurse first.
We provide a maternity medical service and work closely with local midwives. When you are pregnant you will be asked to attend an antenatal clinic with the midwife and further care will be planned. Depending on circumstances and patients’ choice, care can be arranged with York, Pontefract, Leeds General Infirmary or St James’ Hospitals.
Parentcraft classes for future mothers and fathers are held regularly, arranged by the midwives and health visitors.
Clinics are run regularly each week so please call the surgery to book your child’s required immunisation. Always remember to bring their red book to be updated.
If you do not know what immunisations your child currently need, please still make an appointment with our nurse in the above clinic to discuss their requirements.
We can refer patients to other agencies such as community nursing, midwifery, community psychiatric nursing, MacMillan nursing and social services. The medical centre offers facilities for physiotherapy, chiropody, psychology, and counselling, as well as some visiting consultant services such as psychiatry.
