If you have sustained a minor injury we will be happy to treat you at the medical centre. However, if you have a severe burn or severe bleeding, or cannot bear weight on a limb then it would be more appropriate to attend accident and emergency at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. If you are in any doubt, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Minor operations can be done in our treatment room for excision of sebaceous cysts, removal of moles, curettage of symptomatic sebborrhoeic warts, excision of fibroepithelial polyps (if symptomatic).
Please discuss this with your doctor who will then arrange for you to be given an appointment if appropriate.

Contraception And Hormone Replacement Therapy
Our practice nurses are able to do routine check-ups for those on HRT, the contraceptive pill and injection, and cervical screening tests.
If you have been advised by the surgery to do so, please submit a Contraceptive Pill Review form.
Our team of clinicians will be happy to discuss your contraception needs. If you do require emergency contraception we will be able to provide advice and offer free emergency contraception (morning after pill). Emergency contraception can also be obtained from local pharmacies and iCaSH, 1A Oak Street Norwich, NR3 3QZ. They can be contacted by telephone on 0300 300 3030 (option 3 for Norfolk and option 1 for Norwich)
Our practice nurses offer a full range of health checks and advice regarding diet and healthy lifestyle.
Routine Cervical Screening Tests
All women between the ages of 25 and 64 years are included in the NHS Cervical Screening Programme. Women are called for screening as they approach their 25th birthday and are then recalled every three years up to the age of 49 and then every five years from age 50 up to 64.
You will be sent a letter asking you to make an appointment with the practice nurse. If your cervical screening test is not due then we are unable to provide this service for you. The results of your cervical screening test will be sent to you direct.
Cervical screening tests search for abnormal cells on the cervix, or neck of the womb, which may possibly become cancerous, but which can be easily treated before they become harmful.
Breast Screening or Mammography
All women between 50 and 70 years of age will be offered an appointment for a mammogram at three-yearly intervals. At present, in the Norwich area, most women receive their first invitation when they are 51 years old.
Women over the age of 70 years are welcome to attend for mammography every three years, but will need to refer themselves to the Breast Screening Unit at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, telephone 01603 283777.
Should you wish to have advice about examining your own breasts, please request an appointment with our practice nurse.
