Clinics & Services
Cervical smears are recommended for all women aged between 20 and 65 years in order to detect pre-cancerous cells at the neck of the womb before they become dangerous; the process should be repeated every three to five years. This is usually undertaken by a trained practice nurse but a doctor can perform it if preferred.
One of the doctors and the practice nurse run a baby clinic on Tuesday mornings for eight week postnatal examinations and baby immunisations. We strongly recommend that you have your babies immunised.
Child Health Surveillance
In line with health authority requirements we screen all pre-school children for potential problems. Screening is available on Tuesday morning by a doctor and a practice nurse. If more convenient an appointment at the end of a morning surgery can usually be arranged on request. All childhood vaccinations are given by the doctors and practice nurses to infants eight weeks old and above. Click here for the current recommendations.
Further details of our child health surveillance programme are available on request.
Where possible, the practice uses national guidelines for the management of asthma. This will include periodical review of medication with a doctor or nurse, as well as home monitoring if required.
The practice tries to use national and European guidelines of good diabetic care wherever possible. Management will include periodical review by a doctor or practice nurse, as well as home blood sugar monitoring if required.
As part of the quality outcome framework (QOF), patients with registered diseases ie asthma, diabetes, CHD or COPD, will be invited for a health check and routine bloods annually, usually in the month of their birthday.

Vaccination against influenza is highly recommended for anyone with a chest complaint including those with asthma, heart conditions and diabetes and all patients over the age of 65. Clinics are usually held from the beginning of September.
Advice is given to patients who wish to stop smoking; please see the posters displayed in the surgery or ask at reception for the number for LESS (Leeds Smoking Services).
We offer a travel clinic run by the practice nurses. We are able to advise about immunisations required, malaria prevention and general health issues whilst abroad. We are also a registered Yellow Fever vaccination centre for which we charge a nationally agreed fee since the NHS does not cover this. See the above tab for more information.
