In addition to the wide variety of clinics available to our patient population, we also provide access to and facilitate contact to a number of more specialised services outlined below.Please arrange an appointment with your GP to access these.
hosted at Beechwood Surgery
Whilst they are a community-based team that delivers skilled nursing care in to people’s homes, we are fortunate that they have used our premises as a base.They are thus in regular contact with the GP’s and resident within the premises at various times during their working day.Referrals to the District Nursing team can be made through the receptionist, GP or via the Hospital.
by Primary Care Mental Health Practitioners
We are fortunate that our practice provides host to the Primary Care Mental Heath Services counsellors using our premises once or twice weekly to provide our patients with a local counselling service. Please make an appointment with your GP to arrange a referral to this service.There are independent services also available to patients locally such as MIND, CRUSE(bereavement care) and GDAS (for drug and alcohol advice).
including Joint injections
Toe nail operations and a limited range of skin lesions are available to be excised at your surgery. All operations are performed under a local anaesthetic, predominantly on a Tuesday afternoon clinic, by Dr. Lavric.Please be aware that there is an ever-growing lists of minor surgical procedures deemed by the Health Board as unnecessary or cosmetic, and thus will not fund their excision.There is also a wide range of joint injections available that can be performed at the minor surgery clinic.Please arrange a routine appointment with your GP to assess and discuss whether your condition is suitable for a minor operation/injection at the surgery or requires onward referral to a hospital.
