Clinics and Services
We offer a range of services including the below. For more information, please visit our Health Review and Assessment Clinic.
If you would like to attend any of the below clinics, please visit our Consulting Room.
The midwife from Ashford and St Peter’s Hospital runs a clinic every week at York House and Goldsworth Park Health Centre. The doctors and the midwife both run the clinic.
Asthma / Respiratory clinic
We provide a service which follows locally agreed guidelines for the management of asthma and COPD within the community, using specially trained staff. You may also be seen by our healthcare assistant who supports the practice nurses with these clinics.
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit an annual review of your asthma symptoms, please complete our online Asthma Review form.
Child development checks
We feel it is essential that our children are protected from infectious diseases as far as possible. Dr Gaur and Dr Wikner run developmental-check clinics for babies aged 8 weeks (Mondays 14:00-15:30).
You will normally receive an appointment when your child’s injections are due. All babies are invited for their initial first primary immunisations which are arranged after or on the same day as their 8 week developmental appointment check, depending on which site this is carried out. All other follow up immunisations need to be booked by the parent via our appointment line. If you need any further information on when these are due please phone our enquiry line, 01483 767194.
We invite people with diabetes for health checks every 6 months.
Diabetic 6 Month Review
We will ask you to come in for a blood test with one of our HCA’s – and the specialist practice nurse will then contact you to discuss your results with you. This is to monitor your condition and ensure that any medication that you are taking is working as expected.
Diabetic Annual Review
We will ask you to come to the surgery so that we can test your blood and urine (with one of our HCA’s).
Two weeks later you will have a review with one of our specialist practice nurses so that they can help you to manage your condition.
We offer a comprehensive family planning service which includes coil fitting (copper and mirena), and implant fitting. This service is run by Dr Tahira Khatoon who has undertaken specialist training. Appointments can be booked in the usual way – please just let the receptionists know if you wish to book a coil or implant fitting.
General advice and pill prescriptions are available in normal surgery from all GPs, advanced nurse practitioners and also from our practice nurses.
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit a contraceptive pill review, please complete our online Contraceptive Pill Review form.
Joint Injections and Freezer Clinic
Dr Gaur has a Joint injection and freezer clinic on Tuesdays at York House.
These appointments are with the health care assistant.
A positive approach is taken to encourage a healthy lifestyle in relation to diet, exercise, stress reduction, obesity, smoking and alcohol problems.
Meningitis C Vaccine
All first year students who are at, or going to, college or university are eligible for the meningitis vaccine. Please ring reception for an appointment. Meningitis C vaccines are being introduced progressively to all children aged under 13 months and young people from ages 15-20 years.
Minor Illness Clinic
We have a prescribing advanced practitioner who runs a minor illness clinic. When booking these appointments, you will be asked what the problem is to ensure you are seeing the correct person.
New Patient Health Checks
These are carried out, mainly by our HCA’s, to a standard protocol, and will be offered to you when you join the practice.
NHS Health Checks
The NHS Health Check is your chance to get your free midlife MOT. For adults in England aged 40-74 without a pre-existing condition, it checks your circulatory and vascular health and what your risk of getting a disabling vascular disease is.
The health of our young adults is very important. Our practice nurses provide a general health check and also give young people a chance to discuss in complete confidence any concerns they may have.
These are given by the nurse after consultation. You will need to complete our online Travel Risk Assessment form. Please then arrange a travel appointment with a nurse (each person travelling will need a separate appointment) and bring the travel form to your appointment.
Appointments for this service are limited though and need to be made at least 6-8 weeks in advance of the anticipated travel date.
We are sorry, but if no travel appointment is available or your anticipated travel date is less than 6 weeks away – you will need to organise your travel vaccinations through a travel clinic. It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible – at least 6 weeks before you travel – as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.
Advice on a one to one basis for anyone wanting to give up smoking. Please book an appointment with the practice nurse.
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit a smoking review, please complete our Smoking Review form.
