Here are some of the services and clinics we offer:

We offer a full range of services, including emergency contraception, oral contraception, depot and implant contraceptive preparations and the fitting and checking of caps and coils. Condoms are available free of charge from the practice nurse.

We provide a full range of antenatal and postnatal care. Midwife-led maternity services are provided at the New Forest Birthing Centre

Health Promotion

All the nurses offer a range of advice and support to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle e.g. stopping smoking, dietary advice, exercise, menopause. Women aged between 25 and 65 years will be invited to have a cervical smear at least every 3 years.

Minor Surgery

Some surgical procedures can be safely carried out on the premises, and two of the partners are accredited to perform them. We offer this service in an attempt to avoid long delays at the local hospital.

Diabetic Clinic

A weekly clinic for patients with diabetes is run by Dr Mayo and Dr Sheppard and our specially trained practice nurses.

Asthma/COPD Clinic

This is clinic is run by a practice nurse and is for patients who may require a change in their medication, newly diagnosed patients and those who require regular support.

Immunisations

Our practice nurses are happy to advise you about any immunisations that you should keep up to date. We encourage all patients with chronic medical conditions or aged over 65 to have a vaccination against influenza (‘flu) every year. Please make an appointment for one of our ‘Flu Clinics’ which are held from October to December. We can also provide vaccination against pneumonia.
