Blood Pressure Monitoring
There is a patient blood pressure monitor available for patient use in Spring Street Surgery waiting rooms.
Patients may be invited to come along to take their blood pressure on this monitor at any agreeable time during surgery opening hours.
Registered patients who have any concern regarding their blood pressure may also attend the surgery to use this monitor. The monitor will print out the results, which should be handed to reception with the patient name and date of birth written clearly, for interpretation by a GP.
If you have been advised by the surgery to submit your blood pressure readings on a regular basis using a home monitor, please use our Blood Pressure Review form.
Cervical Smear Tests
A cervical smear test is a quick, easy and reliable way to detect abnormal cells at the neck of the womb (cervix) that can lead to cancer if not treated early. Regular smear tests can prevent cervical cancer and it is important to get one done.
Women aged 25-49 years should have one every three years and those aged 50-64 every five years. If you have a history of abnormal smear results, you may need to have repeat tests more frequently. If you have had a hysterectomy (unless if was for cancer) or have never been sexually active, you will not need a smear test.
Childhood immunisations are administered by our nursing staff, please contact reception for an appointment time.
Please visit www.nhs.uk/nhs-vaccinations-and-when-to-have-them/ for the current child immunisation schedule.
A clinic is held at Spring Street Surgery and patients are invited in for review with the practice nurse and the GP. Please ask reception for more details.
