Child Health Surveillance Services
We run a child health clinic for pre-school children at Woodcross every other Tuesday from 13:30 – 15:00. In order to book an appointment you will need to call the Child Health Surveillance team 01902 444692 between the hours of 2.00pm - 4.00pm Monday to Friday. Please note these clinics are not for sick children because of the risk of infection to other people's babies and children.
If you are unable to attend the above clinic, the Child Health Surveillance team also run a clinic every other Friday between 1:30pm and 3:00pm at Phoenix Health Centre, Parkfield Road.
Midwives visit the practice twice a week and run antenatal clinics. They can deal with all issues relating to pregnancy. If you are pregnant please make an appointment to book in with the midwives.
Cervical smears are available under the screening programme and when clinically indicated. Please make an appointment with one of our practice nurses.
We offer a full range of advice and information regarding contraception options.
Review Clinics (For Long-term Conditions)
We run a number of special review clinics. If you are receiving treatment for a long-term condition or have had particular health problems in the past, you will be invited for an annual review with our highly trained nursing team. At this review, you will be given an opportunity to discuss any health issues that you have and any medication you are taking will be reviewed.
