Clinics & Services
In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a range of clinics and services:
We offer development checks on all children. We carry out the six-week check on our patients. The health visitors perform the other routine checks.
We offer advice to both men and women on all aspects of family planning.
We can give advice on giving up, provide treatment to aid stopping smoking and there are smoking cessation clinics held locally.
Two of our practice nurses specialise in diabetes and organise regular check-ups. This is especially important for diabetics who are not seen at the hospital.
We perform minor surgery in our treatment room. Many people find this quicker and more convenient than going to hospital. Typical operations performed are the removal of in growing toenails, minor “lumps and bumps” and joint injections.
Asthma clinics are held at both The Park Surgery and Nafferton by two of our practice nurses. These clinics aim to improve the control of asthma symptoms and help you to understand the treatments that are currently available, enabling you to take control of your asthma and lead a normal. Make your asthma check appointments through the reception.
TRAVEL HEALTH ADVICE
These appointments are held at The Park Surgery. Please advise the receptionist if you think you need vaccinations for travelling abroad and make sure you plan in advance and contact the practice at least eight weeks prior to departure. Please be aware that you cannot always have all your vaccinations at one time. You also need to be aware that some of these immunisations are not available on the NHS and there may be a fee charged for them. More information can be found on the above tab.
We recommend that every woman between the ages of 24 years and 6 months to 64 years have a cervical smear. Letters are sent out to remind patients when their smear is due. In the East Riding, it is recommended that a smear should be carried out every three years for patients aged 24 years & 6 months - 50. For patients aged 51 – 64 the recommendation is five years.
Working closely with the community midwives, we provide a complete antenatal and postnatal service.
MENOPAUSE AND HRT
The doctors and practice nurses can give advice about the menopause. There are various ways of keeping fit and healthy at this time, including hormone replacement therapy.
Any patient known to have heart disease will automatically be offered an annual check-up organised by our practice nurses.
