SERVICES PROVIDED AT THE SURGERY
Dr Loudonsack and Dr Cepeda-Lucas will perform minor operations. Examples of procedures include removal of cysts, moles, skin lumps, toenails and cautery and muscle injections. The doctor will need to discuss the relevant procedure with you before carrying out the minor operation in the appropriate clinic.
Anti-coagulant Near Patient Testing – available to patients from other practices.
If you are prescribed Warfarin we offer a blood testing and dosing service at the practice. Please inform reception to arrange an appointment and register your details.
The doctors provide full antenatal and postnatal care. The community midwife holds her own clinic at Longton Health Centre on Monday morning and
appointments can be made up to 4 weeks in advance. Post-natal (6 week) checks are carried out by the GP and appointments are made during normal surgery time up to 2 weeks in advance.
Community Child Health Clinic
Wednesdays - 11am to 1pm.
The practice provides a full child health service for all locally registered children up to the age of 5 years. Immunisation and developmental checks are carried out in conjunction with the health visitors linked to the practice. They are in attendance to give help, advice and support on a weekly basis. This is a very popular clinic where you may discuss any problems with the Health Visitor, Practice Nurse or Doctor and/or simply get to know other mothers with young children in your area. For vaccinations please attend the clinic at the time notified in your invitation letter.
Contraception including Contraception Implants and Injections – available to patients from other practices.
All the partners and the practice nurses provide advice on all methods of contraception, including fitting caps/coils, contraception implants and injections. This, like all services provided by the practice, is completely confidential.
