Our Practice Nurses hold regular clinics for Asthma, Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease and Hypertension. The Practice is keen to ensure that you have access to the advice and treatments to maintain good health. Regular check ups for these conditions can improve your health so it is important for patients in these categories to see the Nurse at least every 12 months or more often if you need more advice. Please do your best to keep your appointments.
The Nurses’ duties also include travel injections, cervical smears and contraceptive advice. They are available to see patients by appointment only. Please note: Some travel vaccinations will incur a fee. Occupational vaccination will be invoiced prior to the vaccination programme commencing.
Children’s vaccination clinics are held on Thursday afternoons by appointment.
For more details regarding the Children's Immunisation Schedule look in the Health and Lifestyle section under Further Information on the right hand side of this page.

A family planning service is available from all the Doctors and Nurses. There is a 'Drop in' contraceptive clinic on Thursday afternoons, from 4.00pm to 5.30pm. No appointment needed - just turn up.
Non NHS Medicals
The Doctors can provide medical examinations for special purposes such as pre-employment, elderly drivers, insurance policies. These appointments require 30 minutes and need to be arranged with as much notice as possible. You will be informed of the service fee on booking your appointment.
Occupational Health Service
Market Street Medical Practice does not offer an occupational health service. It is the responsibility of the employer to determine risks to employees' health. If your employer believes it to be necessary eg Hepatitis B immunisation and you are not employed by the NHS, we can enter into a contract with your employer. He/she must pay the fee prior to the appointment being arranged.
Patients Over The Age of 75 Years
The practice will offer a consultation, if requested, to patients over 75 years who have not been seen by a GP in the previous 12 months. This will include a general health check.
Patients Not Seen Within Three Years
The practice will offer a consultation, if requested, to patients between 16 and 75 years, who have not attended surgery in the previous three years. This will include a general health check.
