We have a highly skilled team of nurses and health care assistants ("HCAs") who are fully trained in chronic disease management (eg diabetes and asthma), wound management, immunisations and health checks etc. Read on for further information about these services:
Smears are offered to women aged between 25 and 65.
The national cervical screening programme is a method of preventing cancer by detecting and treating early abnormalities which, if left untreated, could lead to cancer (usually over a number of years). Most smears are now carried out by our practice nurses and for most women are quick and easy. Smears are only necessary at the appropriate intervals, but if you have worrying symptoms between smears please make an appointment to discuss them. If you are very anxious about having a smear again please come and talk to us about it.
