The Practice is fully equipped to carry-out minor surgical procedures. These are normally performed in the Treatment Room on Monday afternoon. Your doctor will refer you for surgery following which an appointment will be sent by post. This will be approximately 2-3 weeks before the procedure is to be carried out.
The surgery also has facilities for the treatment of minor injuries such as lacerations, bruises, dislocations, burns or the removal of foreign bodies including those in the eyes. You should report to the Receptionist who will make the necessary arrangements for you to be seen by a doctor or a nurse.
All the doctors in the practice have postgraduate training in Family Planning and will provide advice on all forms of contraception and coil fittings where required. Appointments are available during normal surgery hours. Emergency Contraception is also available.
Pregnancy testing and all antenatal and postnatal care is available through the surgery in association with the community Midwives and hospital Obstetrician. Pregnancy checks are provided by both doctor and midwife appointment.

Phlebotomy (Blood Testing)
Your doctor may ask you to attend for a blood test, or you may require these regularly as part of your treatment. Appointments for these tests are made in advance through the Receptionists and are available at both The Knoll and Kingsley. Appointments with the Phlebotomists are always in the morning. Please note we will contact you with the result of your blood tests; if you do not hear from us either by phone or letter within 14 days no action is required.
