Clinics and Services
The Community Midwife holds a booking Clinic at Southmead Health Centre. Tel: 0117 414 6743
If you have had a positive pregnancy test and are happy to continue with the pregnancy:
- Contact the receptionist and notify the practice of your name, address and the date of your last menstrual period.
- Collect a pregnancy information pack.
- Ring the midwives at Southmead Health Centre (tel: 0117 414 6743) as early as possible to arrange an appointment, discuss health in early pregnancy and plan the rest of the pregnancy.
If you have any concerns about your pregnancy or significant past health problems please make an appointment to discuss these with a doctor.
We can offer advice on how to manage your condition and advise treatment accordingly. We encourage annual attendance at the clinic to monitor your condition. Please make sure reception know that you wish to book for this clinic so they can allocate the correct amount of time.
The Triple A Test
Completing the Triple A Test and taking steps to reduce the risk of what could be a fatal asthma attack is one way that people with asthma can keep themselves well and out of hospital.
Coil and implant service
We offer a range of appointments for both Coil and Implant procedures; please contact the reception team who will find you an appointment.
There is usual a high demand for this service, so if we cannot offer you an appointment straight away, you will be added to the waiting list and contacted accordingly.
The practice nurses and GP’s provide a full range of contraceptive services.
The nurses see most women who require the contraceptive pill and long acting contraceptives including the Depo injection. Intrauterine devices (coils) are very popular and can be either copper (IUCD) or hormone (IUS) based. They are fitted by appointment with Drs Chapman and Janssen. For further advice on any of these methods please book an appointment with the doctors or nurses for discussion.
We refer elsewhere for vasectomies and sterilization and this can be arranged through your GP.
For further advice on family planning visit the FPA Website.
Please visit your local pharmacist or book an appointment with a nurse or doctor through reception, advising them that you need an urgent appointment to be seen that day.
Our practice nurses run the diabetic clinic.
Care for type 2 Diabetes is offered on a six monthly basis, or more frequently as necessary, to pick up any health problems that may develop. An important part of this is continuing lifestyle advice, blood pressure, urine testing, care of feet and eyes and blood tests for renal function, cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
Newly diagnosed diabetics see the Dietician although this no longer takes place within the practice premises. Advice is also given about medication for the treatment of diabetes – tablets and insulin.
We ask that blood tests are performed twelve days before the six monthly reviews with the Diabetes Nurse/Doctor.
GP Care is a company formed by GPs across Bristol in 2007 to provide a range of services both NHS and private.
At Fallodon Way we participate in a private minor surgery service for patients with minor skin lesions (moles, lumps and cysts) not covered by NHS treatment criteria.
The practice runs a comprehensive infant and pre-school immunisation programme. The sessions are held on Monday afternoons by appointment only.
Please phone the appointment line 0117 962 4692 and pre-book.
Parents are automatically informed when their child is due for their next injection.
Please note that unless there is a valid reason, we advise that all children should have the complete course of recommended immunisations. If your child is not immunised, then as well as a risk to themselves, they may pose a risk to other children as they may be a carrier for these diseases.
13-14yr olds will be invited to attend for teenage boosters to complete the childhood immunisation programme.
