Clinics & Services
At Attleborough Surgeries we run a wide range of different clinics for health screening, chronic disease management and many other patient services.
We offer a range of specialised clinics and services. Please ask reception for further information.
Family planning and sexual health services
Our specialist family planning nurses and doctors will advise you on the best method of contraception for you. We provide a full range of family planning services including the provision of the Pill, condoms and the fitting of the contraceptive implant and a full range of coils.
Cervical smears are routinely recommended every 3 years for women between age 25 and 49. After this every 5 years until 65 years old. You will be sent an invitation to attend from Screening Services when your smear is due. Even if you do not wish to have a smear, please discuss this important issue with your doctor or nurse.
Baby and child immunisations
You will receive a reminder card for your child's vaccination schedule and will need to make an appointment with the practice nurse.
Flu and pneumonia
We offer immunisations each autumn to all patients over 65 years old or those, including children, who have conditions such as asthma, diabetes, chest and heart disease.
Antenatal clinics are held weekly by the midwife at the surgery.
Postnatal appointments are offered with the practice nurse at the time of the baby’s 1st injection.
Phlebotomy Service (blood tests)
We provide a phlebotomy service at the surgery. Appointments should be made with one of our healthcare assistants.
INR clinics are run by our Healthcare Assistants for those patients who are taking warfarin.
Minor surgical procedures may be carried out by your doctor. Suitable appointments can be arranged.
Some medical examinations and services (e.g. for employment, sporting activities or insurance purposes) are not covered by the NHS. You will need a special appointment for these. Further information and fees charged for the most common services can be found on this website under Non-NHS Services.
