This clinic is run by the midwives.

General Health Care
It is the policy of the practice to try to prevent ill health in addition to try to minimise the effects of ill health. It is for this purpose that you may find the Doctor checks things like your blood pressure when you attend for a sore throat. You may also be advised to attend a health check with the nurse when you attend for a minor matter.
There will be occasions when having attended the surgery the Doctor feels that your illness is self-limiting and does not require any treatment with a prescription medicine to make it better. This does not mean that the Doctor feels that you have wasted your time or his/her by attending.
Other local NHS services
As well as our practice, there are many other local NHS services you can contact for health advice, information or treatment. Before you do, remember that you can treat many minor ailments such as colds, coughs and indigestion by keeping a well-stocked medicine cabinet at home.
