Cardiovascular Appointments

Cardiovascular appointments are available in nurse clinics for monitoring patients with heart disease, stroke and TIA. You may receive an invitation to attend an annual review. It is important to attend your appointments to make sure that we have you on the best possible treatment for your condition.

Citizens Advice Bureau

Appointments are available to our registered patients for advice on benefits, housing etc on the last Wednesday of the month. Appointments can be booked through reception.

Counselling

Talking therapies are provided via a referral to the primary care mental health team and you will be allocated to one of the counsellors.

Diabetic Appointments

Diabetic appointments are available in nurse clinics. You may receive an invitation to attend an annual review. It is important to attend your appointment as good diabetic control reduces the likelihood of health complications.

District Nursing

Our district nursing service is available to help patients who need nursing assistance at home. The service can be accessed through the hospital or your doctor.

Family Planning

We offer a full range of family planning options including coil fitting, implants and emergency contraception. Please let the receptionist know if you need emergency contraception and we will try and fit you in as soon as possible. All of our staff have been trained in maintaining confidentiality.

We have a dedicated smear clinic twice a week with the nurse.

Health Visitor

Our Health Visitors are able to advise on the healthcare needs of many patients, including new mothers, young children and the elderly. They are involved in screening and immunisations and can advise on smoking cessation. They are based at Wilmslow Clinic and the telephone number is 01625 441197

Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy

We are no longer able to offer hypnotherapy or psychotherapy but can refer you for counselling.

Midwifery

A team who are associated with Macclesfield Hospital provides our midwifery service. There is no need to see your GP, you can book directly with the midwife when you find out you are pregnant. The midwives manage most of our antenatal care in conjunction with the GPs and Hospital Antenatal Departments.

Minor Surgery

Dr Thompson and Dr Speake run a minor surgery clinic in the practice for the treatment of minor surgical conditions. You may be referred by your GP. It helps avoid a long wait for hospital treatment for low priority conditions.

Travel Vaccinations

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse, who runs a clinic on every Thursday afternoon, to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the travel form before coming to see the nurse. If this completed form can be handed in at reception when you book the appointment six weeks prior to your travel, this will allow the practice nurse enough time to prepare appropriate course of vaccines for your travel.

Flu Vaccination

An influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients with heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes and residents of nursing and rest homes.

Please contact the reception staff in September for details of the vaccination dates and to make an appointment. If you are unable to attend the surgery, a home visit will be arranged to undertake this facility.
