Well Person Checks

If you have not attended the surgery in the last three years and have no specific illnesses, we are happy to see you for a well person check. Your blood pressure and BMI (body mass index) will be measured and you have the opportunity to discuss any other health issues. Please make an appointment to see our Health Care Assistant.

 

Family Planning: Coils and implants are available

We provide a full range of family planning services including: Diaphragm, Intrauterine devices (IUCDs) and Implanon fittings. Dr Baikie has a dedicated clinic on Thursday evening by appointment only. Non-registered patients are welcome. 

 

Ante-Natal Care

A midwife visits the surgery on Monday and Tuesday mornings for an ante-natal clinic. Doctors are available to be seen at other times. All appointments for the midwifes must be pre-booked via the Midwifery team.

 

Post-Natal Care

Midwives visit mothers and babies at home shortly after birth. These appointments are arranged directly with the midwifery team (020 8934 3863). We like to see mother and baby at the surgery when the baby is six weeks old to meet the new arrival and make sure all is going well. Health visitors (020 8408 8512) will also make contact during this time. We are always happy to see parents of young babies at the surgery sooner should therebe any concerns. 

 

Child Development Checks

Doctors provide a child development check for babies at six to eight weeks and health visitors for pre-school children. Please do make a GP appointment worried about your child's development at any age.

 

Baby and Pre-School Vaccinations

We encourage all children to have the full range of baby and pre-school vaccinations to protect them from potentially serious illnesses. Please make an appointment with our practice nurse. We are happy to discuss the vaccination programme with you if you have any questions.

 

Health Visitor Clinics

Health visitors run a clinic on Thursday afternoons, to weigh and measure babies and young children and discuss any concerns.  Cinics are by appointment only which can be made via the health visitor on: 020 8408 8512.

If you have Diabetes you will be asked to attend regular clinics for check ups.  Nurse Practitioner Debra Lacey and Nurse Charlotte hold certificates in Diabetes care.

You will be given a care plan, an emergecy pack and your Flu Jab. If you use your emergecy pack, please do get intouch with the practice and your Doctor will issue you more. If you have any concerns at anytime after your annual check, please do get intouch with your Doctor.

 

Travel Advice and Vaccinations

Please make an appointment with our nurse, at least six weeks before your holiday for travel vaccinations. This ensures that the vaccinations have time to work. Before your appointment you will need to fill in a travel questionnaire.

 

Minor Operations

Dr Baikie holds a minor operations surgery with the help of one of the Health Care Assistants to treat some skin problems. Please make an appointment to see her if you think you might need this service.

We can screen for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HIV and other STDs for registered Hook patients and Non registered patients for a strictly confidential service

 

Counsellors

Our Counsellors help people to explore feelings and emotions that are often related to their experiences. This allows their clients to reflect on what is happening to them and consider alternative ways of doing things. 

Our Counsellors work in a confidential setting and listen attentively to their clients. They offer them the time, empathy and respect they need to express their feelings and perhaps understand themselves from a different perspective. The aim is reduce their confusion and enable them to cope with challenges or to make positive changes in their life where necessary.

To see a counsellor here at the surgery you will need to be referred by a GP.

 

Dietician

Our Dietician helps with educating patients who need special diets as part of their treatment. She may focus on specialist areas, such as children's health, diabetes, kidney disease, food allergies or eating disorders. In the community you may be involved in a range of health promotion activities.

To see our Dietician, you will need to be referred by a GP.
