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. You will need to complete a form in advance of any appointment so that the appropriate vaccinations can be identified and ordered. 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.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a form provided by the practice so the nurse can research and assess your requirements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. You will then need to make an appointment with the practice nurse.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to complete this form as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as a number of appointments may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your latest appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
When you make an appointment, tell the reception staff what it is for so that enough time can be arranged
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
National Insurance Certificates and the completion of Attendance and Disability Living Allowance forms for the DWP are free of charge.
