Our health visitors will also see each child to assess their development at different stages. A development assessment will also be offered at 7 - 9 months, 2 years and 3 years.
The practice offers chiropody assessments for patients who meet the NHS criteria for referral. Please make an appointment with your doctor who will refer you if appropriate.
Counselling can help you to deal with life problems. If you feel counselling might be of help to you, please see a doctor who may refer you to our counsellor Pam Newton or to other counselling services.

Once the midwife knows you are pregnant she will contact you to arrange your initial booking appointment where she will provide you with information you will need during your pregnancy and arrange any screening that may be required.
Follow up appointments will be held at the surgery, please contact reception to book these appointments.
