Clinics & Services
Patients can be seen in general clinics which can include health checks, annual reviews, dressings, Asthma reviews, anti-coagulation, spirometry and also specialist Diabetes annual reviews. Child immunisations are help throughout the week and we always try to be flexible when booking appointments as we understand how busy mums are. The Health Authority call children in for these immunisations according to the age of your child, however sometimes the practice will contact you directly if your child has not been immunised.
