Pregnant women seeking urgent midwifery advice should phone the Labour Ward at Torbay Hospital (01803 654631) or Derriford Hospital (01752 763610), depending upon where they are booked.


Child Surveillance

The Doctors work closely with the Health Visitor and do regular checks on all pre-school children (by appointment only). The Health Visitor holds regular clinics on Thursday afternoons, from 2.00pm - 3.00pm. Please contact the surgery if you require further information.


Well Person

The Doctors and Practice Nurses provide health checks on request for any adult patient. In addition every woman between the age of 25 and 49 are currently recommended to have cervical smears every three years, and every five years for women between 50 and 65. It is currently advised that all patients should receive five Tetanus, Diphtheria and Polio vaccinations, at different times, in order to provide lifetime protection. Please talk to either of our practice nurses to check if you are safely covered.


Minor Surgery

The Doctors are trained to perform a variety of minor surgical procedures under local anaesthetic, at the Health Centre.


Diabetes

diabetesAll diabetics are invited to undergo a regular diabetic review (usually every 6-12 months). They should make a routine appointment with the Health Care Assistant who will perform a blood test, and to make a further twenty minute appointment with the practice nurse, about two weeks later for a review. Arrangements can be made to visit housebound diabetic patients.
