Clinics and Services
If you are booking an appointment for a smear, health check, immunisation or special medical assessment, please tell the receptionist. They will be able to give you an appointment of the correct length and in the right clinic.

Foreign Travel and Immunisations
Practice nurses are happy to help you with medical aspects of overseas travel: documentation, immunisations, protection against malaria and medical advice. Most immunisations are free of charge. Please check with the nurses about charges for other vaccines.
For short stay holidays (less than 1 month) please book your appointment 6 weeks in advance.
For long stays (more than 1 month) book your appointment as soon as possible some of the recommended vaccines are a course of 3 and can take a number of months to administer.
Please complete the Travel Advice Form via eConsult by consulting with the Practice should you feel you need input prior to your appointment.
Each year, in late September, we begin our Flu campaign. We invite patients who are over 65 and those with certain conditions to attend for a vaccination.
Cervical Smears: We encourage routine cervical smears and we will remind you when your next test is due. The practice nurses will normally carry out smears, by appointment. Cervical smears are normally carried out mid-cycle.
We offer information, advice and support for all forms of contraception to any of our patients. Contraceptive services are provided during normal surgery hours. If you require emergency contraception this should be administered within 72 hours, (the earlier the better). Ask the receptionist for an urgent appointment.
Routine pill checks are carried out by both doctors and practice nurses.
Managing Parenthood – People wishing to discuss any aspects of pregnancy or parenthood are encouraged to see their doctor or practice nurse.
We offer testing for Chlamydia and gonorrhoea. These are the most common sexually transmitted infections in the U.K. which affect both men and women. Most people have no visible symptoms, so they may not know they have the infection. Rarely, these infections can lead to problems having children later in life.
The practice offers maternity services, sharing antenatal care with our local hospitals and community midwives. The Tower Hamlet team of midwives serve our practice and see patients here for both booking and follow-up appointments. When you become pregnant the doctor will refer you to the team and you will receive a booking appointment and an appointment for your scan from the hospital.
The doctors and community midwifery team carry out maternity services. Please let the receptionist know if you need an antenatal appointment. Postnatal care and examination is generally performed in the surgery unless the hospital advises otherwise. Please let us know as soon as you have had your baby.
Follow-up appointments with the midwife are by appointment only and held on Friday mornings at the Practice.
Health Visitors and Child Health Services
The health visitors job is to help people stay healthy and to advise on prevention of illness. Health visitors are qualified nurses who have done extra training in childcare and development, and health promotion.
All pregnant women and families with young children have a named health visitor; but they are also available to patients of all ages, and can advise on a wide range of social and health topics.
They also have a The Community Well Baby Clinic Mondays 13:30-15:00 for parents to get advice and have their children weighed. This clinic is for children aged 0 – 5 years and will be a drop in service
