In addition to the standard GP and nurse appointments we also offer the following NHS services:

 

Ante/Postnatal Care

This service is provided by the GPs and our visiting midwife. Most women book into the nearby University Hospital Lewisham, but some may choose to go to other near-by hospitals. If you suspect you may be pregnant we advise that you do a home pregnancy test first.  

Patients can now self-refer to the midwife without seeing the GP first or if you would prefer to see a GP please contact the practice as normal to book and appointment.  

The first scan is offered at 10-12 weeks, so please see the doctor / midwife well before then.

 

Asthma

Although we do not provide a clinic specifically for asthmatics our nurses are well equipped to treat patients with asthma or patients who believe they may be asthmatic. Please book a routine appointment with a Practice Nurse.

 

Child Health

Baby Clinics

GP Baby Clinics and Practice Nurse Immunisation / 8 week check baby clinics are held every Wednesday Afternoon - to be seen in either of these clinics contact the practice to book an appointment.
