Our practice hosts the following services and clinics. To attend one of these clinics please ring our reception.
Asthma appointments are available in nurse sessions. We have the facilities to monitor your asthma control and give you up-to-date advice on the best treatment. On your repeat prescription you may be invited to the asthma clinic for your medication review.
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.
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 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.
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.
We offer a full range of family planning options. Dr Taylor and Dr Hayes specialise in coil fitting and implants, for other family planning services, including emergency contraception, you can make an appointment with any of the doctors. 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.

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.
Dr Speake runs 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.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to seek advice with a travel vaccination clinic. If they advise any vaccinations they should provide you with the necessary paperwork confirming this.
If you wish us to perform the vaccination you will need to make an appointment with the practice nurse, and provide the paperwork for the vaccination/s required two weeks prior to the appointment in case we need to order the vaccination. To ensure that you have the necessary vaccinations please book the appointment with the nurse at least 6-8 weeks before your date of travel. This will allow the practice nurse enough time to prepare the appropriate course of vaccinations.
The travel vaccines that are provided free on the NHS are:
- Hepatitis A (including when combined with Typhoid or Hepatitis B)
- Tetanus, Diptheria & Polio combined vaccine
If you require other vaccinations you will need to contact a private travel clinic.
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.
