Our practice nurses are available from Monday to Friday, by appointment for advice, information and support on a wide variety of health issues including; patient health screens, diet and lifestyle advice, weight management, ECGs and blood samples, clinics for Diabetes, high blood pressure, heart and respiratory diseases, contraceptive care, cervical smears and breast screening, immunisation (childhood and for travel abroad), influenza and pneumonia.
It is recommended that all women have regular cervical smears. You will be notified by post when your smear is due. Smear tests can be performed by either the Practice Nurses or the Doctors. A smear test is an essential part of any well women check-up. It involves a small inconvenience but it is very worthwhile as it enables us to detect early and treatable diseases of the neck of the womb. The Doctors and Nurses would be happy to further discuss this test with you.
The practice offers minor surgery such as the removal of small lumps and the freezing of warts..
These Nurses provide general nursing care to patients who are ill at home or housebound. They also run daily clinics in the Treatment Room for dressings, blood tests, ear syringing and injections.
Available at Little Hulton Clinic. Please ring the clinic directly on 0161 790 4283.
Available at the antenatal clinic on Wednesday mornings. Please make appointments at reception.
A trained phlebotomist is available by appointment in surgery for most blood tests.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
