Clinics and other services

Family planning

Full contraceptive services are offered through the surgery, including the fitting, checking and replacement of coils.

Emergency contraception

Telephone our Tarporley practice on 01829 733456 where you will be able to speak to a Practice Nurse for guidance.

Child immunisation clinics

Children will normally be called for appointments for routine vaccinations. If you think your child may have missed any immunisations, please let us know, as it is important that children are fully protected. If you have any concerns over individual immunisations we will be happy to discuss them with you.

6 Week Baby Checks

The surgery will contact the family to arrange your childs six week baby check.

Adult immunisation:

In the Autumn we hold clinics for flu vaccinations for all patients over 65 years and others who are considered ‘at risk’.

When you reach the age of 65 you will be entitled to a pneumonia vaccination. Please book in at reception for your vaccination.

Shingles vaccinations are also given by our Practice Nurses.

Diabetes, Asthma and other respiratory disease, Heart Disease, Thyroid, Epilepsy, High Blood Pressure

We like to review patients with these and other chronic diseases at regular intervals. However, if you are unwell, do not wait for the clinic, make an early appointment in the usual way.

Minor surgery

Some minor operations can be done at Tarporley Cottage Hospital. Please make an appointment with your doctor for an assessment of the problem.

Well Woman/Cervical Cytology

Where appropriate this includes advice on family planning, HRT, menopause and cervical smears. We recommend that all women between the age of 25 and 49 be screened every 3 years.
