Clinics & Services
Clinics are held by specialist practice nurses with additional help from the doctors and hospital specialists for the following:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Patients who have these conditions may be invited regularly to attend a nurse led clinic for supervision of their medical condition.
We provide full antenatal and postnatal maternity care with deliveries usually at Great Western Hospital. We work closely with the midwives who carry out antenatal clinics in the surgeries.
We provide a full service including the fitting of coils and caps, insertion of implants and we offer advice about and prescribe the contraceptive pill.
The Health Visitor is available as follows:
Every 2nd Wednesday of the month between 10:30 and 12:00 at Ramsbury Surgery (drop in clinic).
All women from the age of 25 to 65 are encouraged to have a smear. Those from 25-50 every 3 years and those 50-65 every 5 years. These are carried out either by the Practice Nurses or Doctors.
A counselling/psychology team are attached to this practice and access to this service is by Doctor’s referral. Patients are then invited to make their own appointment and are initially offered self-help, coping strategies and courses such as stress management. Further appointments are arranged as needed.
This is carried out within the practice where appropriate. We have our own equipment for cryotherapy.
