This practice provides all usual general medical services. These include:
Some of the doctors carry out various minor surgical procedures, for example removal of cysts and lumps and freezing with liquid nitrogen. Please enquire at the reception desk as to which doctor can help you.
Child Health Clinic
This is held by a doctor, a health visitor and a practice nurse at the Stapleford surgery on Wednesday mornings . The aim is to provide routine health development and advice for children under the age of 5 years. Immunisation of children is carried out during these clinics. It is not a surgery – unwell children should be seen during ordinary surgery times to minimise the spread of infections.
Routine ante-natal care is undertaken by a doctor in conjunction with the community midwife.
