These clinics are run by our GPs and our practice nurses. The clinics provide the ideal opportunity to ensure that you and your child are progressing well eight weeks following delivery. We offer the facility to ensure that your child is fully immunised in line with the national recommended vaccine schedule. We invite you to attend all three appointments at the same time to reduce the frequency with which busy new mothers need to attend the surgery.
Expectant mothers who have taken a positive pregnancy test at home should contact the Community Midwife Centre directly on 01522 573772 for their initial appointment.
Our nursing team is able to offer advice and regular health checks to patients diagnosed with asthma, diabetes, chronic lung disease or heart disease.
Our GPs and nurses are able to offer patients advice regarding contraception as well as being able to perform long acting reversible contraception procedures including coil and implant fittings.
Our Health Care Support team are able to offer advice and support to patients who wish to give up smoking.

Patients who are currently receiving anti-coagulation treatment can attend our in house Warfarin Clinic. Sandra and Suzanne run this clinic on Wednesdays from both Saxilby and Skellingthorpe sites and provide a flexible service to all that require Warfarin treatment. Home visits can also be arranged in certain circumstances.
The Glebe Practice is pleased to be able to offer our patients access to routine GP appointments at evenings and weekends.
The new service is part of an extended access service which has been commissioned by NHS Lincolnshire West Clinical Commissioning Group.
The appointments will also be available on bank holidays and across the Easter, Christmas and New Year periods
Extended hours appointments are for pre-bookable non-urgent appointments.
For urgent matters at evenings and weekends, patients will continue to access the GP Out of Hours Services at Lincoln County Hospital via NHS 111 or the Minor Injuries Unit at John Coupland Hospital.
The service is being delivered by a collaboration of GP practices in the area. If a patient wishes to attend an extended hours appointment, they will need to travel to another local GP practice or a central GP practice hub and will not see their own GP.
Ultimately, this is about allowing a patient to see a GP or practice nurse at a time that is convenient to them.
To arrange an appointment or for more information on when and where appointments are available, speak to the practice receptionist or member of the practice team
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 4 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 travel to allow the vaccines to work.
If four weeks have lapsed, you can get information about specialised travel vaccination centres at www.travelturtle.co.uk.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
