Antenatal Clinics

pregnant_stomach

Antenatal clinics are led by community midwives. Pregnant women are asked to book antenatal care at around the tenth week of pregnancy.

The first ultrasound is at 12 - 13 weeks and the second at 20 weeks.

Your doctor would like to see you for review at least once during your pregnancy. Otherwise, antenatal care is monthly until 28 weeks, fortnightly until 36 weeks and then weekly until delivery.

Child Health Clinics

Children's health clinics are held regularly at The Oaks, Stoughton Road and Wodeland Avenue surgeries. 

The health visitor will weigh and examine babies and give advice; doctors will undertake development checks and advise on any concerns over progress and behaviour. 

These clinics are also intended for childhood immunisations. Please check at your local surgery for specific times and dates for vaccinations, or on the vaccination tab above.

We do not encourage children or babies who are unwell to attend these clinics for fear of spreading infection.

We have nurse-led asthma clinics at some of our surgeries. Your doctor or surgery receptionist can give you further details.

Diabetic Clinics

A doctor, nurse and podiatrist team run diabetic clinics for patients, where we offer full diabetic care. You may be referred to one of these clinics rather than the hospital for diabetic care.

Contraceptive and pre-conceptual advice and care is provided by all the doctors at all sites during surgery hours.

Well Woman Advice

All doctors are happy to perform smears, postnatal checks and discuss women's health issues.

Flu and pneumococcal vaccinations are recommended for all patients over 65 and patients of any age with heart, lung, kidney or diabetic problems. Residents of nursing and residential homes are all advised to be vaccinated.

Parking at Wodeland Avenue

The car park at our Wodeland Avenue site is often full and we need to reserve space for our staff. Please note that patients can park on the road directly outside free for up to 2hrs.

Telephone lines

We have been experiencing an unusually high volume of calls which has meant some patients have had difficulties contacting us. Please note that you can book, change and cancel appointments on line.

New on line appointments service

We have moved to a new appointments system. Patients currently registered with our online booking system will need to re-register for the new system. Appointments can be made and cancelled using this system. Please go to the appointments section for details. Note that you can register for this service on line.

Please let us know of any change in your contact details by completing the online form at the bottom of the home page.

Emergencies  
In the case of a life-threatening problem, dial 999 for an ambulance.  It is now advisable for anyone suffering acute, severe chest pain (especially if associated with sweating, pain in the neck or left arm or faintness) to dial 999. Any suspected "heart attack" is better dealt with directly by the paramedics in the Surrey Ambulance service.  The nearest casualty department is at the Royal Surrey County Hospital (01483) 571122
