The community midwife runs an ante-natal clinic on Wednesday mornings to provide ante-natal care and support to expectant mums. She will be happy to discuss your wishes for your care and confinement and will make all the necessary arrangements. Most ante-natal care is shared between the Primary Care Team and the Hospital. Please ring the surgery to make an appointment for our ante-natal clinic. To contact a midwife at all other times, please ring 0114 2268301.
These are run by the health visiting team at the following locations/times:
Ecclesall Library (120 Ecclesall Rd South) – 1st & 3rd Wednesday of each month 10am – 11.30 no appointment needed.
St Luke’s Church (Blackbrook Road) – Every Tuesday 10am – 11.30 – no appointment needed.
A Health Visitor and Nursery Nurse are present at these sessions.
If you need to contact a Health Visitor at any other time – please ring 0114 3053224 option 3.
Counselling services are available at the Practice. If you have a problem which you think may be helped by counselling, please make an initial appointment with the GP who will refer you to the relevant therapist as appropriate.
A team of district nurses works closely with the Practice providing a range of services to patients who are housebound and unable to attend surgery for treatment. Referrals to the district nurses are normally made by the Hospitals or the GPs.
The nurse and both GPs are trained in family planning and can give advice and treatment.
Health Care Assistant
The main role of the healthcare assistant is to take blood samples but she is also trained to check blood pressure, undertake new patient medicals and administer certain vaccinations. Please be aware that blood samples have to be taken before 14:00 to ensure prompt delivery to the laboratory.
Minor surgery and joint injections
The doctors are qualified to perform some minor surgery and joint injections. Please make an initial appointment with the doctor to discuss such problems and a further appointment will be arranged if appropriate.
The nurse can advise on a range of health matters and give vaccinations, check blood pressure, syringe ears, remove stitches, dress wounds and helps monitor long-term illnesses such as asthma and diabetes. When booking with the nurse, please inform the receptionist what the appointment is for so that the appropriate length of time can be allocated.
Travel vaccinations are also available at the Hallamshire hospital travel clinic, larger Boots and Superdrug pharmacies as well as Rowlands pharmacy locally.
PLEASE NOTE THE TRAVEL QUESTIONAIRE (YOU WILL FIND THE LINK TO THIS BELOW) MUST BE COMPLETED AND HANDED INTO RECEPTION AT LEAST 8 WEEKS BEFORE YOU TRAVEL.
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 that you complete the travel questionnaire and hand it in to reception at least 8 weeks before you travel. The Practice Nurse will check what vaccinations you require and a member of the reception team will contact you to make the 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.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
To obtain results, please ring or call into reception after 1:00pm at least 1 week after the test.
Please note: Test results cannot be given to a third party for any patient aged 16 years and over.
