Our Clinics & Services


Blood Tests

 

We hold phlebotomy clinics at the practice on a Monday and Friday morning. Alternatively, you can attend Greenford Green clinic in Wadham Gardens where a daily service is provided. You may also choose to attend clinics at Hillview Surgery in Perivale or Ravenor Park in Greenford if more convenient. Full information on local clinics is available from reception.

 

Maternity

 

If you are pregnant, it is important to book to see a doctor here as soon as possible so that your maternity care can be arranged. The earlier you see a doctor, the more likely you are to be accepted at the hospital of your choice. When you call to book, please advise the receptionist that you are pregnant in order that we can arrange to have your antenatal pack ready for you when you attend.

 

We provide shared care with hospitals and the community midwifes who you will see regularly from the 24th week of your pregnancy.

 

Please note that you should try to take folic acid before you get pregnant and for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy to reduce the risk of infants being born with neural tube defects such as spina bifida. Folic acid is available from your local pharmacy.

 

Family Health

 

Childhood immunisations

 

Childhood immunisations are provided by appointment with one of the nurses. Babies are given injections at eight, 12 and 16 weeks and a booster between the ages of three and four.

Ante-natal clinics with the community midwife are held locally at the Petts Hill Children's Centre. We have shared care arrangements with all the local hospitals. If you have a query regarding your ante-natal care, please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you have COPD, you need to be seen by the doctor at least once a year to review your symptoms and medication.
