The under 25s drop in clinic is now being managed slightly differently. All under 18s should visit either St Mary's in Newport or the Health and Well Being Centre in Ryde as directed in the advert above. Under 25s are still being seen as drop-ins on Wednesday afternoon from 14.00.
A full range of family planning care, including coil fitting and emergency contraception, is available from the surgery. Family planning advice is available from your own doctor during a normal surgery appointment or you can make an appointment in our family planning clinic, which is held as per the above schedule.
We strongly believe in the preventative value of regular cervical smears. Having a cervical smear performed is a simple, painless procedure. Patients are regularly called by the computer programme operated by PPSA.
The fitting of an intra-uterine device (coil), diaphragm (cap) or implant requires a special appointment which you may arrange after discussion with your family planning nurse or doctor.
You do not have to be registered with a practice in order to obtain family planning advice. Patients of this practice are able to attend any of the other local surgeries for contraceptive advice if they wish. Similarly, patients of other local surgeries are welcome to attend us for contraceptive advice.

The aim of influenza immunisation is to protect those who are at increased risk of complications should they develop flu. Immunisation is therefore strongly recommended for adults with any of the following:
|Asthma and other chronic lung diseases
||Coronary heart disease
In addition, patients aged 65 or over, and those in nursing and residential homes are also advised to have flu vaccinations as are pregnant women, children, carers and patients who are immuno-suppressed and those living with them. The vaccine is usually given each year between September and December and special clinics are held at the surgery. We don't usually write to patients to invite you to attend the flu clinics, as we usually advertise locally and place promotional banners outside the surgery. You can usually book your flu clinic appointment from early September.
If you would like to discuss flu vaccinations, please speak to a practice nurse.
- All patients aged 65 and over
- Patients aged 55-65 with chronic diseases of the heart, lungs or liver, or with diabetes
- Patients aged 2-65 with chronic renal disease, sickle cell disease or who have had their spleen removed.
If you fall into one of these categories and would like to be immunised against pneumococcal disease, please discuss with the practice nurse so that an appointment can be arranged for you. Most people will only need to have the vaccine once. You may need a second dose if you have certain conditions such as a damaged spleen or no spleen, or problems with your kidneys. Please speak to our nurse if you think this applies to you.
All patients with learning difficulties are offered a full annual health check. These are undertaken by one of our GPs and usually supported by our Health Care Assistant. Health checks can be done in the surgery or at the patients' place of residence, whichever is best for the patient. The health check involves monitoring blood pressure, height, weight, BMI and where possible a blood test to check for any other health problems. In addition the GP will discuss a patient's health and wellbeing as appropriate with the patient and / or their carer.
