Clinics & Services
Antenatal clinics are held at Paulton Hospital. These are important as they ensure that the mother and her baby are progressing well.
We have a Sister who is family planning trained and you should see her for family planning matters including coil checks. Coils and contraceptive implants may be fitted by appointment with Dr Barton. Please book a double appointment for these fittings with the practice nurse and the doctor.
These are held on Wednesday afternoons between 15.30 - 16.20 by Sister Davey. It is important for your child to be immunised against common childhood diseases. More information can be obtained from Sister Davey or the health visitor.
We have a family planning trained nurse and if emergency contraception is required you should contact the surgery during opening hours to request an appointment with the nurse.
Emergency contraception can also be obtained at the young person’s clinic, which is a drop in clinic at Paulton Hospital. This runs from 15:00 – 21:00 weekdays and at weekends.
Asthma and COPD
Our asthma trained nurse holds a specific asthma/COPD clinic on Thursday & Fridays. We offer an annual review to anyone with asthma via a recall system and more frequently if your asthma is not well controlled.
Some minor surgery work is undertaken within the practice. You will need to make an appointment with your GP to discuss the problem. If the problem is suitable for in house minor surgery you will be asked to make a double appointment with both the GP and the nurse. You will also be asked to sign a consent form.
We have a physiotherapist who undertakes one session a week within the practice. This is held on a Thursday morning. You can self refer to the physiotherapist if you have had any of the following problems occur within the last 5 days:
- Joint sprain
- Neck or back pain (not ongoing problems)
- Sports injury
You do not need to see the GP first.
A full diabetic check with the eye camera is offered to all diabetic patients on an annual basis. This is organised by the Diabetic Retinal screening Department and they hold clinics at the surgery throughout the year. We have a diabetic trained nurse, Eleanor Davey, who will be happy to discuss any questions you may have regarding diabetes.
Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), Epilepsy, hypertension, stroke and mental health clinics are run on a regular basis by recall system and patients will be contacted and asked to make an appointment.
