Health advisory clinics
All women aged 25-49 years are offered a smear test at three year intervals, with the interval increasing to five years until the age of 65, where appropriate.
All men and women from the age of 16-74 are offered a health check every three years. The health checks are by appointment only.
Child health and immunisation
We recommend full immunisation for all pre-school children. Development and health checks are performed by the doctors, by appointment.
Please read the recommended NHS vaccination schedule.
This is performed under local anaesthetic in the surgery, as arranged by the doctors.
The aim of promoting health is to try to identify risk factors at an early stage and prevent them from causing ill health. For this reason, we will ask about drinking and smoking habits and measure your blood pressure and weight from time to time.
This is especially wise in people with a family history of heart disease, diabetes or stroke. Examinations are offered for all new patients and for existing patients every three years.
Please visit our Health Review and Assessment Clinic if you have been advised by the surgery to complete a health review or assessment.
Acupuncture is available to our patients on the NHS and privately to others.
Full pregnancy care and postnatal checks are available in conjunction with the community midwife. Doctors look after their own patients.
Antenatal clinics are every Thursday at Swaffham.
All aspects of family planning advice are available.
An influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients that are over 65 years old, or those with heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes and residents of nursing and rest homes.
Our specialist Asthma nurse will ensure all our asthma patients are monitored on a regular basis, either via telephone, online or face to face.
If you have been advised by the surgery to do so, please complete our Asthma Review form.
