Do I have Cancer?

If you are concerned that you may have symptoms that could point to cancer please visit the following website. If you have a risk of a particular type of cancer that is greater than 3% it does not mean that you have cancer, or even that you need further tests, but you may do, and so you should arrange an appointment with your GP to discuss it further.

HPV vaccine

The HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccine has been offered to all girls in school year 8 for over ten years. From September 2019 the vaccine will also be offered to year 8 boys.

This is because the evidence is clear that the HPV vaccine helps protect both boys and girls from HPV-related cancers (such as cervical cancer, some mouth and throat cancers, and some cancers of the anus and genital areas).

School Immunisation Services will be offering the HPV universal programme in all schools for September 2019. The first dose will be given in Year 8 and the second dose will be given in Year 9.

There is no catch-up programme for boys in the older year groups hence only boys in Year 8 from September 2019 will be eligible for the HPV vaccination.

More details about the HPV vaccination here.

First Contact Practitioners-Physiotherapists

We are pleased to have some First Contact Practitioners (FCP)-Physiotherapists coming to the practice.

  • They will be able to see patients with musculoskeletal problems; such as back pains, knee pain, elbow pain etc.
  • They will be able to assess, treat and refer on if necessary.
  • If you have had an injury and think you may have broken a bone, it would be better for you to see one of our Urgent Care Practitioners (UCP) first in our Urgent Treatment Centre.

Our FCP-Physiotherapists are here on Wednesday afternoons and Friday mornings.

Please book to see them at reception.
