Clinics/Services

Antenatal – Patients are seen regularly for their shared antenatal care by both the doctor/practice midwife and the hospital. An appointment is necessary although patients will always be seen if problems develop. If, because of work or other essential commitments, it is not possible to attend the antenatal clinic, the doctor is sometimes willing to see patients during the ordinary surgery for antenatal examinations.
Child Development Assessment (Baby Clinic) – Regular developmental examinations are performed by the doctor and health visitor in accordance with the guidelines laid down by the Health Authority. Due to changes in the health visiting department the health visitor clinics are now held at Crofton Baptist Church and Bromley Park Surgery. These clinics are intended for advice regarding well children. If your child is ill, please come to the ordinary surgery
Nurses Clinic – The nurse’s clinic is held daily and patients are seen by appointment. Wound dressing, suture removal, ear syringing and injections for those on regular maintenance therapy may be arranged.
Well-Woman Clinic – This clinic, conducted by the practice nurse, gives women the opportunity to discuss matters concerning general health, diet, exercise, smoking and alcohol consumption as well as issues related to the menopause (eg. HRT and osteoporosis). Blood pressure, urine examination and appropriate blood tests will be arranged.
Menopause Clinic – Menopausal advice is offered by the practice doctors and nurses.
Smear Clinic – Routine cervical smears are performed by the nurse by appointment during the smear clinic, although if the time of this session is impossible because of work or other commitments, smears may be arranged at other times through the nurse. Please remember to bring with you the date of your last menstrual period. You will be notified of the result. If you would like a urine examination, this can be arranged if a sample is brought to your appointment.

Family Planning – A comprehensive family planning and menopause service is offered by the practice which includes oral contraceptive pill prescription in addition to the fitting of diaphragms, implants and IUCDs (coils). Vasectomy and female sterilisation can be arranged through the hospital by the GP. To preserve anonymity and confidentiality all consultations regarding family planning are by ordinary appointment during normal surgery hours.
Well Man Clinic – These clinics are designed to give men the opportunity of discussing health matters relating specifically to men. In particular, blood pressure, weight, exercise, smoking, alcohol consumption and stress factors will be explored.

Health Promotion Clinics – According to the National Service Framework of the NHS we have specially conducted screening programs for heart disease with particular emphasis on assessment of risk factors; this includes blood pressure, anti-smoking, cholesterol management and diabetic management.

Full diabetic reviews, including foot pulses and neurotherapy testing, are regularly undertaken. Blood and urine examinations are arranged through the hospital.

Assessments will be made during the ordinary surgery, although the procedures themselves may be performed at other times.
Children’s Vaccinations – Routine immunisation against tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough, polio, measles, rubella, mumps and haemophilus, rotavirus and influenza, is routinely offered to all children, and full immunisation is actively encouraged by the practice for all these conditions. The timing of immunisation injections is discussed at the baby (development assessment) clinic, and you may obtain advice either from the doctor or health visitor. Appointment letters are sent out for babies first vaccinations, all other appointments are the responsibility of the parent or carer.
