All GP's at the practice are able to give contraceptive advice. Additionally Dr Claydon will fit coils. Dr Claydon fits and removes all contraceptive implants (arms) in the minor surgery clinics.
Dr Claydon holds a minor surgery clinic once a month. These are for removal of benign moles, skin tags, cysts, joint injections and aspirations, and for contraceptive implants and removals in the arm. To access this service, you must first be assessed by one of the GPs as being potentially suitable for minor surgery at the practice. If so, you will be placed on the list for minor surgery at the next available session and an appointment sent to you. However, Dr Claydon, as the surgeon, retains the final decision whether you can be safely operated on at the practice. Dr Claydon will also conduct joint injections in a regular clinic but you must book an extended appointment for this purpose - again you must be assessed by one of the GPs as needing this service.
Please book a travel clinic appointment at least 6 weeks where possible prior to your planned travel to discuss necessary immunisations and medications. It should be noted that only some vaccinations are supplied free of charge on the NHS; others, and all medications (e.g. malaria, antibiotics) are issued on private prescription payable to a pharmacy of your choice, with an additional practice charge for all medications issued. More information is available on the above tab.
