Patients who suffer from the above conditions should be reviewed regularly. Clinics are held by Sister Ogden and Sister Bennett in conjunction with the doctors and are by appointment only.
Cervical Smear Test
All female patients between 25 and 65 are advised to have regular smear tests every three years for 25-49 and every five years 50-64. Smear tests are important because they can detect early signs of the disease which is then easily treated. Please make an appointment for a smear test with the practice nurse
