GP telephone and face-to-face appointments: at the moment more than half of our appointments are face-to-face. Some patients prefer the convenience of a phone call. We can also offer video consultations at your request, please let the team know when you book the appointment so this can be set up. We also have some weekly routine home visit slots for our housebound patients.
Nursing appointments: we have an experienced practice nurse offering smears, wound checks, immunizations, and injections as well as long-term condition and minor illness management.
Healthcare assistant clinics include health checks (NHS health checks for those over 40, diabetes health checks, and pre-diabetes health checks), injections, blood tests, ECG’s and 24 hour blood pressure
Phlebotomy: we have three phlebotomists who take blood tests (over 16’s) and also help with our flu vaccine program. Children who require blood tests will be referred to the hospital for this, so please speak to the GP about this.

Self check POD: in our waiting room at the Lonsdale you are able to check your own blood pressure, height, and weight and have this information entered into your record automatically (if you wish). Please ask reception when you arrive and they can help you with this.
