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.
The LTDM clinic is run by Healthcare Assistants, Practice Nurses and Doctors, all working together. If you have any of the following conditions, asthma/COPD, diabetes or heart disease you will receive a letter once a year offering you an appointment at the practice to see the LTDM team for your annual review.
The review will be for all conditions you might have so you won't be asked to come several times for different conditions. Patients who have conditions which require us to carry out a blood or urine test will have an initial appointment with the Healthcare Assistant who will take a blood sample and fill in a basic questionnaire with the patient as well as checking height, weight and blood pressure.
A follow up appointment will be made to see the Doctor/Nurse team once the test results are returned to us. The LTDM clinic team will spend as much time as it takes to review your conditions and make any adjustments necessary to your medication.
There will also be time available for you to get any advice or help needed in managing your condition. If there are any problems, the LTDM team will make any necessary follow-up appointments.
Please note that the Asthma review form must only be completed by those patients aged 16 and over.
Should you choose to complete the Asthma review form we request that you are seen here at the Practice for review during the following year.
For patients who are due an annual asthma review.
Please would you answer the questions on the form below and submit it to us.
If your symptoms are deteriorating or you have any concerns, please make an appointment to see the respiratory nurse or a doctor as well.
Asthma Annual Review Form
The Practice only provides immunisations that are free on the NHS. Malaria prophylaxis is not available from the Practice and patients are advised to book an appointment at a private travel clinic should this be required for your trip. Details of local private clinics offering malaria prophylaxis and other private vaccines can be found below.
Please click on the link below, which will advise you on the vaccinations you may need for the country/countries you are travelling to. It will also contain advice about other risks you may encounter whilst travelling.
If you need a vaccination please complete the following health questionnaire and send it to our practice nurses via the Send button at the end of the questionnaire. Alternatively, please print the form and post it to the surgery address or drop it into Queens Square Surgery.
The nurses will look at the health questionnaire to see if you need any of the free NHS vaccines available. The Surgery will then contact you to arrange an appointment if necessary.
Travel injection appointments should be booked 6-8 weeks before your holiday or business trip.
Any vaccines that are not provided on the NHS will need to be obtained from the private travel clinics. In order to obtain advice regarding any other vaccinations and malaria prophylaxis recommended and other precautions needed whilst travelling abroad and not provided by us, we suggest you make an appointment with one of the private travel clinics listed below:
