All GP practices are contracted to provide Essential Services, that is, basic treatment of ill people.
We also provide the following Additional & Enhanced Services:
The 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.
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 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.
Minor operations are offered by arrangement with your own doctor. For legal reasons, an adult must accompany anyone under 16. You will be asked to sign a consent form.
These are held every Thursday at 2.00pm at St Nicholas' Surgery. For your convenience, practice nurses will give childhood vaccinations at any of their general clinics at all our surgeries. You can get information on the childhood vaccination schedule in the health & lifestyle section on this webpage.
All babies registered with the practice will receive an appointment by post to see a doctor shortly after the age of six weeks. The health visitor will carry out other child health surveillance on the basis of need.

The surgery provides a number of additional CDM clinics e.g. coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, epilepsy and mental health reviews. Patients will be invited to attend. It is important that you attend the clinic even if you are seeing your own doctor regularly or attending hospital. Much of the management of CDM clinics is now linked with our Long Term Conditions Clinic you can find out more about this clinic on this website.
If you are not on a regular review and would like a health check, please book an appointment with the health care assistant.
The practice has developed a new innovative approach for managing patients with Long Term Conditions. If you have asthma, COPD, diabetes, ischaemic heart disease, epilepsy, high blood pressure, heart failure or have had a stroke/TIA you might receive an invitation to this new clinic. The project is currently targeted at those patients who have more than 1 of the above problems but hopefully will be rolled out to all patients with Long Term Conditions in future years.
The clinic consists of one single longer appointment for all your conditions. Prior to the appointment you will be sent a Health Needs Assessment form to complete so we can concentrate the appointment on the areas which concern you the most. A GP & the practice pharmacist will also review your record; before your appointment; and might make suggestions to the practice nurse to improve your care.
The appointment will focus on increased education, creating personal goals & encourage self care/management. As part of the appointment you will create an agreed personal care plan for the next 12 month period.
If you want to find out more about your condition and how you can help manage it the is lots of useful information available on this website. Please visit our long term conditions section.

The practice nurses provide advice and vaccination for all foreign travels. Please complete a holiday questionnaire (available from reception) and return it to the surgery at least eight weeks before you intend to travel. The nurse will then check if you require any vaccinations and any necessary appointments can be made.
St Nicholas' Surgery, Withernsea and St Patrick’s Surgery, Patrington are registered Yellow Fever Centres. Some vaccinations may incur a charge.
Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:
It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travelto allow the vaccines to work.
From time to time you may request a report, letter, certificate or medical examination from your doctor. This is outside the core medical services provided by the NHS. You will be asked to pay for these services. Please ask at reception for a list of fees.

If your body has become dependent on booze, stopping drinking overnight can be life-threatening, so get advice about cutting down gradually.
A good place to start is with your GP. Be honest with them about how much you drink.
