Child Development and Immunisations
Drs Burack, Haque, Symon and Sura undertake the 8 week child development check. You will be contacted by the surgery with an appointment time. The practice nurses are available to give routine baby immunisations during normal surgery times, normally immediately after the 8 week check wherever possible. Please ring for an appointment if you are not contacted.
Appointments can be booked with any of the practice nurses during normal surgery hours. We strongly recommend you respond when you receive an invitation to attend from the local laboratory
Contraceptive Services and Sexual Health
A full range of contraceptive services and methods are available at North Street for our patients. These include pills, injections, caps, emergency contraception, coils and implants. Patients can be referred to vasectomy services. There are three specially trained family planning nurses that you can see and also your own doctor.
Boys and girls under the age of 16 are very welcome to use these services and can do so without being accompanied by a parent. All patients, including under 16’s can be assured of absolute confidentiality when consulting with all problems, including contraception.
Occupational Health – Hepatitis B Vaccination
Hepatitis B Vaccination is not available for those who feel they need cover because of their occupation or other reasons. Patients should speak to their employer who is responsible for arranging vaccination.
The practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. We will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
We are currently not accepting any new referrals into this service. Speak to your GP to be referred to a appropriate provider.
