Service We Provide
We provide a full range of services to patients at the surgery premises. We run a child health surveillance clinic every Wednesday afternoon, at which we do immunisations and developmental checks. The health visitor attends these clinics every other week. We have an antenatal clinic every Thursday afternoon. Contraceptive services are provided by the practice, including the fitting of coils. We run a dedicated diabetic clinic.
Some services may from time to time be provided by other practices or providers. We teach medical students from St George's Hospital.
A comprehensive family planning service is offered including the fitting of implants and coils.
They can book with Dr or Nurse Anne for any antenatal check.
Patients can also self refer directly to local hospitals:
Well Baby Clinic
Developmental checks and children’s immunisations are offered to all our children.
The childhood vaccinations are given in rapid succession at two, three and four months to protect small babies from whooping cough. It is very important that your child has this vaccination. There are few reasons for not giving it.
If you are concerned that your child is unwell and perhaps should not have a vaccination on a particular day, please still bring the child to the surgery so that your doctor can assess whether or not they should have the vaccination. It is now very rare for a child not to be able to have the whooping cough vaccination. There is a very real danger of your baby being damaged if they contract whooping cough in the first year of life.
We run a diabetic clinic twice a month. Patients are seen by the practice nurse and the doctor, if necessary. We work closely with the diabetic specialist nurses from Mayday Hospital.
Patients with asthma are invited to see the doctor or nurse during normal surgery times. We believe this to be more convenient for patients than holding a dedicated asthma clinic.
If you require vaccinations for your holiday please download and return the completed form to the surgery at least one month prior to your appointment.
If you need Yellow Fever or any other private vaccine, please complete the form, get a medical summary from the Moorings Surgery and then take it all to Keston House to make an appointment.
