Medical Services 

Your body is a little like a car – as it ages areas can function less well or can become defective. 
We make sure our cars are regularly serviced and have a yearly MOT to get the best out our cars, maybe we should be as kind to our bodies.
Your Heath is important. Regular health checks and screening can pick up conditions early allowing early treatment and hopefully prevent or reduce complications from undetected conditions.

Our “See and Treat” appointments are suitable for a variety of skin lesions and moles
Skin lesions can be assessed and treated on the same day or later if preferred.

The incidence of Melanoma is increasing. If you notice a new mole or a changing mole as an adult, you should have it examined to exclude melanoma.
Melanoma diagnosed early is almost always curable and while it is not the commonest of skin cancers it causes the most deaths.
Lifetime risk of melanoma for men is 1 in 55 and 1 in 56 for women.

Vasectomy is a procedure to render you permanently sterile and you will no longer be able to father children.
It is the most reliable form of contraception once the “all clear” has been given
We use the minimally invasive technique.

Home: What We Do

We offer Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) – Harmony Test to look for chromosomal abnormalities during pregnancy.
We can also arrange referrals for pregnancy scans and offer pre delivery screening for Group B Streptococcal infection.

Some skin lesions, warts and verrucae are suitable for treatment with cryotherapy.
Cryotherapy “freezes” the skin lesions or warts and may need several treatments

Skin has many functions including providing a protective barrier, preventing loss of moisture, regulation of body temperature and production of vitamin D.
Skin conditions can stop the skin functioning properly and be challenging and disruptive to daily life.
We offer longer appointments to assess your skin condition.
