Child Health Development Clinic

Provided throughout the week by the Practice Nurse, an appointment is required.
We automatically invite all women between the ages of 25 and 64 for a smear every 3 years. The smear examination is a simple and painless way of spotting changes in the neck of the womb which may lead to cancer if not treated.
This takes place on Tuesday afternoons and is run by Dr A Karigiri. It offers treatment for benign skin problems including warts, cysts and moles by using cryosurgery (freezing), curettage and surgical excision. Please see one of the doctors in a general surgery prior to booking into this clinic.
All the doctors feel strongly that your way of life plays a great part in maintaining good health. We are happy to spend some time discussing these matters during surgery consultations even if this does not directly relate to the problem you have come to see us with. We will be pleased to give you advice on such matters as diet, weight reduction, stress, stopping smoking and prevention of heart disease or cancer. On occasion it may be easier if we arrange a special consultation just to talk about healthy living.
