Antenatal clinics are held at Paulton Hospital. These are important as they ensure that the mother and her baby are progressing well.
We have a Sister who is family planning trained and you should see her for family planning matters including coil checks. Coils and contraceptive implants may be fitted by appointment with Dr Barton. Please book a double appointment for these fittings with the practice nurse and the doctor.
These are held on Wednesday afternoons between 15.30 - 16.20 by Sister Davey. It is important for your child to be immunised against common childhood diseases. More information can be obtained from Sister Davey or the health visitor.
We have a family planning trained nurse and if emergency contraception is required you should contact the surgery during opening hours to request an appointment with the nurse.
Emergency contraception can also be obtained at the young person’s clinic, which is a drop in clinic at Paulton Hospital. This runs from 15:00 – 21:00 weekdays and at weekends.
Our asthma trained nurse holds a specific asthma/COPD clinic on Thursday & Fridays. We offer an annual review to anyone with asthma via a recall system and more frequently if your asthma is not well controlled.
Some minor surgery work is undertaken within the practice. You will need to make an appointment with your GP to discuss the problem. If the problem is suitable for in house minor surgery you will be asked to make a double appointment with both the GP and the nurse. You will also be asked to sign a consent form.
We have a physiotherapist who undertakes one session a week within the practice. This is held on a Thursday morning. You can self refer to the physiotherapist if you have had any of the following problems occur within the last 5 days:
You do not need to see the GP first.
A full diabetic check with the eye camera is offered to all diabetic patients on an annual basis. This is organised by the Diabetic Retinal screening Department and they hold clinics at the surgery throughout the year. We have a diabetic trained nurse, Eleanor Davey, who will be happy to discuss any questions you may have regarding diabetes.
Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), Epilepsy, hypertension, stroke and mental health clinics are run on a regular basis by recall system and patients will be contacted and asked to make an appointment.
We offer support to help patients stop smoking. Appointments can be made with either of the practice nurses for this or HealthCare Assistant. Click here to visit NHS Giving Up Smoking
The practice nurses offer travel advice. Please make an appointment to discuss your travel plans. The nurses will then be able to advise and administer any vaccinations which are required. Some vaccinations are free to patients, but others have to be paid for. Click here for charges. More information is available on the above tab.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will 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 second 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.
