We provide all of the core services for the management of illness and disease, referring patients for other services as appropriate. When available, a choice of hospital will be offered when a referral is required. Some referrals may need to be made through a referral management centre set up by the Primary Care Trust to ensure that patients get to see the right person. We also provide relevant health promotion advice.
The following additional services are also provided:-
- Cervical screening services
- Contraceptive services
- Vaccinations and immunisations
- Childhood vaccinations and immunisations
- Child health surveillance services
- Maternity medical services
- Minor surgery
In addition, several enhanced services are offered:-
- Influenza and pneumococcal immunisation for those in at-risk groups
- Intra-uterine contraceptive device fittings

On top of the above, patients have a right to a consultation if aged between 16 and 75 and have not been seen within the last three years. Patients aged 75 and over have a right to a consultation if they have not been seen in the last 12 months.
