Practice Nurse Services
Unless otherwise stated, all services are by appointment only
It is very important that all children receive the recommended vaccinations. The Baby clinic is available every Tuesday between 13.30 – 14.15. This is a drop in clinic. No appointment required. This is a well baby clinic when the doctor and practice nurse can provide help and advice about your child’s welfare and development. If your child is poorly, please contact the surgery to arrange an appropriate appointment. If you would like to see the Health Visitor a clinic is available every Wednesday afternoon, at the Health Centre, between 1.30 pm and 3.30 pm (no appointment required)
It is important once you have been diagnosed with a respiratory disease that you see the nurse on a regular basis. The doctor or nurse will advise you how often you will need to be reviewed. Your inhaler technique will be monitored together with other factors to enable you keep your symptoms well controlled and ensure you maintain a good quality of life. Prescriptions can only be renewed by attending the respiratory clinic.
Heart Risk/blood Pressure Clinic
Regular review will help us to ensure your treatment is effective and your symptoms are well controlled. With your co-operation we can work together to prevent any further illnesses occurring.
Many people travel abroad without having the appropriate vaccinations. Your travel agent should be able to advise you if vaccination is required. If you are in any doubt, make an appointment to discuss this with the practice nurse. Most vaccines are kept in stock at the surgery and can usually be administered when you attend. It is important, where possible, to plan two months ahead to enable vaccination courses to be completed before travelling.
Due to the demand on nursing services we ask the majority of patient to attend the Cornerstone clinic or North Manchester General Hospital, the times of which are available from the reception desk. If you find it extremely difficult to attend these alternative locations, please inform the receptionist who will endeavour to book you with the practice nurse.
Our practice nurse provides a well woman clinic. She is able to advise people regarding Family Planning and Hormone Replacement Treatment and most importantly cervical cytology (smear tests).
Over 75 Years Health Care
With an aging population, it is important that our over 75 year old patients are seen on an annual basis. You will receive a reminder to attend. If, however, you have not seen a nurse or a doctor for over 12 months, please do not hesitate to contact the surgery to arrange an appointment with the practice nurse for an over 75 year screening check.
There is also a family planning clinic available at Newton Heath Health Centre. This is a drop in clinic (no appointment required). Please ask the receptionist for times of clinics.
