Clinics & Services
The IW NHS Trust informed the surgeries that it would no longer be providing a blood taking service for the GPs on the Isle of Wight. Whilst the surgery itself does not directly provide a blood taking service due to room capacity, we are able to offer a sevice that is based at Westridge, near the Tesco store. Please ring reception who will be able to book you an appointment for there. If you have any mobility issues you may still attnd St Marys for this, and certain blood tests will also have to be carried out there. The centre at Pellhurst Road no longer provides any phlebotomy service at all.
Your doctor, midwife and hospital jointly provide antenatal care. Expectant mothers are seen regularly in antenatal clinics. These are held at the local Children's Centre in George Street
Eight week Baby Checks
At around eight weeks of age all babies and their mums will be invited to a health-check by Dr Seiger.
Child immunisations are carried out by the practice nurse. The first set will be scheduled to coincide with your child's eight week check.
Recommended each autumn for the over 65 year olds, patients in residential homes, those suffering from chest, heart, liver, kidney diseases, diabetes or on long-term steroids.
The practice nurse can give advice on all family planning matters. An appointment can be made during surgery hours.
If you think you need emergency contraception while the surgery is closed please call the Out of Hours Service, Tel. 111
Cervical smears are an important screening test, offered routinely to all women aged 25 – 65, every three years. Appointments can be made with the practice nurse.
