Clinics & Services
Nurses Clinics and Services
Our Nurse Practitioner can see patients for their asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes and contraception needs.
Registered Nurses can deal with general health checks, ear care, smears, blood tests, ECGs, dressings and removal of sutures.
Ronna and Vanessa can see patients for contraceptive needs to include repeat contraceptive pill, change of contraceptive pill or for those wishing to discuss and start oral contraception
Immunisation is a way of protecting ourselves from serious disease. Once we have been immunised, our bodies are more able to fight those diseases if we come into contact with them. It is important that your child has their immunisations at the right age. This will help keep the risk of your child catching these diseases as low as possible.
You will be sent reminders of when your child is due for their immunisations.
Please see the Vaccinations Section for detailed information.
The Podiatrist has a consulting room in our Hassocks Surgery. She is not employed by the Practice and patients who are eligible to use her services must be referred by their doctor.
Family Planning Service
We are pleased to announce we are now part of the C-Card Scheme in partnership with Sexual Health West Sussex. If you are already registered on the scheme you can pick up condoms from all 3 Practice sites. If you wish to register for the scheme make an appointment to see Vanessa or Ronna. The scheme is open to anyone aged 13-21 years of age. Screening for sexually transmitted diseases and counselling for contraceptive needs can also be provided as part of the C-Card service we offer.
If you would like advice on any aspect of contraception, fertility awareness or sexual health, we have female doctors and practice nurses available.
We advise all patients over the age of 65 to be vaccinated against influenza.
It is also recommended for patients with heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes and residents of nursing and rest homes.
If you are aged 65 or over we also offer immunisations to help protect you against pneumococcal infection which can cause diseases such as pneumonia, septicaemia (blood poisoning) and meningitis.
We encourage all our patients to share the responsibility for their health, both in preventing disease and treating existing disease. Prevention really is better than cure. Many of the most serious diseases can be prevented by a healthy lifestyle and without drugs.
For our patients' wellbeing we provide the following services:
- Diabetic clinics
- Asthma clinics
- Hormone Replacement Therapy
- Travel advice and immunisations
- Smoking Cessation clinics
In two of our surgeries we have blood pressure machines in the waiting rooms. These are available to you at any time during surgery opening hours.
