Services at Field Street Surgery
Services and Clinics
We offer many services at Field Street Surgery, and below are some examples of what we provide to our registered patients.

It is the intention of the Practice to offer more services so that patients do not have to go into the local community hospitals for tests that can be done in-house. We also intend to run targeted health campaigns in the Practice and to form partnerships with local Voluntary Groups.

  • Chaperones

    If there is need for an examination of an intimate nature by the Doctor, you may wish a chaperone to be present. You may ask for one of our staff to act as a chaperone or, alternatively, you can return for the examination at a mutually convenient time and bring a relative or friend with you.

  • Cervical Smears

    These are taken by the Practice Nurse. The Health Authority will usually inform you of the result. If you have not had a report within six weeks of the test, please let us know.

  • Contraception Family Planning advice is available from the Doctor or Practice Nurse.
  • Medical Certificates

    Medical Certificates are given at the discretion of the Doctor for bona fide medical conditions. Legally, we are unable to back-date these unless we have seen you for that condition in the recent past. Please do not ask for medical certificates over the telephone we are unable to issue them. You will need to come in for an appointment with the Doctor for this.

  • Influenza Vaccination

    These are available from October onwards each year.

  • Spirometry

    We now offer lung function tests.

  • Chlamydia Screening

    Ask at Reception for an appointment with the Practice Nurse.

  • 24-hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring

    We now have the ability to monitor a patient's blood pressure over 24 hours - this saves the inconvenience of referring patients to Hospital.

  • 24-hour Electro-Cardiogram (ECG)

    We have also purchsed a 24-hour ECG machine to continually monitor heart activity throughout the day and night. This saves the inconvenience of referring patients to Hospital.

  • Stop Smoking Service

    Please make an appointment with our Practice Nurse to discuss any needs. The local pharmacies also hold smoking cessation clinics and they would be happy to advise you further.
