Clinics & Services

pregnantThe practice offers confidential advice and service covering all family planning care, including fitting of caps and coils (IUCDs) and implant contraceptives. Morning after pill service is provided from all our surgeries and from Withernsea Hospital.

Maternity Care

All doctors provide maternity care in co-operation with the community midwives and health visitors. Various options for maternity care are available; you may wish to discuss these with your doctor or midwife. Always bring a urine sample in a clean bottle to the clinic.

Smear Tests

Smear tests for women are intended to detect changes before cancer develops in the cervix (neck of the womb). The changes can be treated and cancer prevented. We recommend that all women between the ages of 25 – 65 should have regular smear tests unless advised to the contrary by the doctor. The practice nurse carries out smears.

A reminder is sent when your smear is due. If you wish to be excluded from the cervical smear screening programme, please come and discuss it with the practice nurse. Please do not just ignore the letter. If you still wish to be excluded from the screening programme you will be asked to sign a form to inform the health authority of your wish. The smear result will be posted to you directly.
