Clinics We Offer

Chronic Disease Clinics

We provide routine testing for all patients who are at increased risk and who would normally have an annual review.

Please contact the surgery to make further enquiries if you are due your annual blood tests.

Baby Clinic

Lisson Grove and Woolwell surgeries each have health visitors assigned to them. They can be reached on direct lines which are 01752 314175 for Lisson Grove area and 01752 434188 for Woolwell area. The health visiting service is available for all ‘well’ babies and advice on children under five.

Cervical Smears and Breast Screening

All women between 25 - 64 should have regular cervical smears. Between 25-49 smears should be taken every 3 years and every five years thereafter up to the age of 64, unless there is a clinical need for it to be done sooner. Please make an appointment with the Practice Nurses who will be able to see to this for you.

All women currently in the screening program will continue to be invited.

Ladies aged 50 – 65 will automatically be invited to the Breast Screening Service for a routine mammography on a three yearly basis. This is held offsite. 

Chlamydia Screening

As a Practice, we are being asked to actively encourage 16-24 year olds to have regular screening. Therefore, we are inviting you to collect a screening kit from the surgery; you will not need an appointment with a nurse or doctor to discuss the test. 

It is advised that the test is done when sexually active, thereafter annually or on changing partners. Chlamydia is a serious disease and can lead to infertility if left untreated. It can often present with no symptoms which means you may not know you have it. 

The Chlamydia Screening Office will notify you of the results via your preferred method of contact. In order to do this you will need to be able to give two forms of contact, e.g. an address and mobile phone number. They will also arrange any treatment if the test is positive and arrange partner tracing. 

If you are unsure about completing the test or have any questions, please contact the surgery for further advice.

Diabetic Clinics

Patients with diabetes are asked to make an appointment at least annually to have a thorough check-up and advice on management. Clinics are run by our Practice Nurses and patients are asked to have blood tests done in advance to enable a complete check up. All diabetics are also advised to attend retinal camera screening annually.

We continue to see our Diabetic patients in surgery for annual blood tests, blood pressure, urine check and foot check. Please contact the surgery if you are due your annual review.

When all the results are back, you will be followed up by the Practice Nurse on the telephone unless you need to be seen in surgery.

Family Planning

All the doctors provide a full range of family planning services in addition to which our Practice nurses are also family planning trained. The services are available throughout each weekday but, when booking, please let the receptionist know that this is the service you want so that you consult with an appropriately qualified person. 

Maternity Care

Minor Surgery

We are able to provide a comprehensive minor surgical service (removal of cysts and lumps, dealing with ingrown toenails etc). If you would like to consider using this facility, please make an appointment with your doctor to discuss your needs. Please note that appointment availability will depend on clinician availability and the urgency of clinical need.
