Many minor operations can be done by your doctor in the surgery, often avoiding the need for you to attend the hospital. Please make an initial appointment with the doctor to assess the problem. If you require a minor operation that can be done in the surgery we will schedule you for the next available clinic. These are undertaken monthly and the maximum wait should be no more than eight weeks.
Free NHS Health Checks
We offer full Health Checks to all patients aged 40 - 74. We will be systematically asking all our patients to come for one of these over a 5 year rolling period. However if you would like to have a health check before your recall please ask at Patient Services.
Screening Transgender Patients
This leaflet is for Trans (Transgender) and non-binary people in England. It tells you about the adult NHS screening programmes that are available in England and explains who we invite for screening.
We use 'Trans' as an umbrella term to embrace the diverse range of identities outside the traditional male/female definitions. These include transgender, gender fluid and non-binary. Find more Trans health information on NHS Choices at www.nhs.uk/trans-health.
