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.

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.
Our nurses can provide patients with travel vaccinations and advice. Patients must complete and submit the practice travel questionnaire at least four weeks prior to travel. The nurse will then determine your vaccination status and travel needs and contact you to arrange an appointment. If four weeks have lapsed, you can get information about specialised travel vaccination centres at www.travelturtle.co.uk.
