Clinics & Services
Phlebotomy (blood tests)
Blood test can be performed in surgery between 8.00 and 13.00. For services outside these hours there is more information here.
Antenatal Clinics are held on Tuesdays with the midwife.
We have a Social Prescriber who is on hand to help with any area's that impact on your health but are not medical. For example issues with housing or loneliness. To speak to the social prescriber contact the surgery and this can be arranged. For more information visit https://derbycitysouthhealthcare.co.uk/page1.aspx?p=2&t=3
Anti-Coagulation Therapy (warfarin)
Nurses Julie Harrington has consultation slots for patients on anti-coagulation therapy, and also visit housebound patients to deliver this service
Coils and Contraceptive Implants
Dr Saunders & Dr Makava are experienced in coil and implant fitting enabling the Practice to offer this service to patients.
We immunise against infectious diseases which can cause death and disability and strongly recommend that all children should receive their full course of immunisation.
Other immunisations (e.g. Hepatitis B; Flu or Rubella) are advised according to age or risk. Please ask our reception staff for details.
Minor Surgery and Diathermy
Sessions are held at regular intervals for the removal of skin lesions, moles, warts etc that are causing discomfort. However, we cannot remove skin lesions for purely cosmetic purposes.
It is essential that patients have an appointment with the GP first so that the lesion can be properly assessed. If we are able to remove it at the surgery, we will arrange for patients to have an appointment at the minor surgery clinic.
For more information contact Live Life Better Derbyshire on 01246 515550.
Contraception and Sexual Health
The doctors and nurses at surgery can give information on all forms of contraception. Most can be provided at the surgery including coils and implants. Other providers of contraceptive services in Derbyshire can be accessed here.
We can also give advice about and test for sexually transmitted disease, although sometimes we may advise you that it is more appropriate for you to visit a specialist centre.
Our practice is collaborating with NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) which is providing NHS numbers for patients that may be suitable for electronic repeat dispensing prescriptions.
The information is obtained from NHS prescriptions submitted to the NHSBSA. A member of our clinical team will contact these patients soon to explain the benefits of this service.
We mainly work with Royal Derby Hospital, London Road Community Hospital and Queens Hospital Burton. For information on their services please visit https://www.uhdb.nhs.uk/
