Clinics & Services
We have dedicated phlebotomy clinics for routine blood tests. You may only book an appointment for blood tests that have been agreed by one of our doctors or nurses. If the doctor has not arranged a follow-up appointment, ring after 2pm a week later, when the receptionist should be able to give you a message from the doctor about your test.
For patients on warfarin, we have an INR testing machine at the surgery. Our healthcare assistant can test a finger prick blood sample and we can usually calculate your new dose immediately.
Child Health Surveillance
All the doctors are qualified to carry out these examinations.
6-8 week examinations are done by the doctors and normally arranged to coincide with the Tuesday Baby Clinic.
Let reception know if you are booking your child in for this reason.
We have a nurse led minor illness clinic most days. Reception can book you into this clinic.
We are able to offer some minor surgery procedures and joint injections. Please ask the doctor about this service.
Cervical Smear Testing
We offer a cervical smear service on any weekday. Make an appointment with one of the nurses.
Diabetes, COPD & Asthma Clinics
We will ask you to attend these nurse led clinics if necessary.
These are held annually from late September. Please book via reception if you qualify.
Our midwife, Sister Julie Daley, runs regular antenatal clinics at the surgery
Our health visitors run a baby clinic at the surgery every Tuesday afternoon, jointly with one of our nurses. Ask reception to book an appointment for this clinic. Most early immunisations are done here, as well as the 6 to 8 week check by one of the doctors. The parents of new babies will receive a letter requesting they bring their baby to an eight week check. Please let reception know this is the reason for your appointment.
Contraception & Family Planning
All the permanent doctors and nurses are trained in family planning.
Dr Henderson fits contraceptive coils (IUCD and IUS) and Dr Ko fits contraceptive implants.
You should see one of the doctors if you want to start a new method of contraception, but you can usually see the nurses for routine check-ups after that.
For information about contraceptive choices, see Family Planning Association.
We can give advice on sexual infections and do some testing at surgery.
For full screening for sexual infections, you can go to the local Integrated Sexual Health Clinic at Cardiff Royal Infirmary without needing a referral.
Telephone 029 2033 5208 for an appointment.
We have an attached counsellor, who is able to provide short term therapy for some emotional and psychological difficulties. Please ask one of the doctors if you think you might benefit from seeing the counsellor.
The nurses can give advice and most injections needed. For further information and advice click here
