Our Clinics


The Practice Nurses will see patients with asthma at any time during their surgery hours. Every year we offer asthmatics an asthma review. This usually involves a discussion about how well symptoms are controlled, as well as checking peak flow and inhaler technique. If it is difficult for you to attend for a review, please complete our online asthma questionnaire which can be submitted to us when completed.

Childhood immunisations

Childhood immunisations are administered in the Nurses’ clinics. Currently they are given to babies at 2, 3, 4, 12, and 13 months and to preschool children between the ages of 3 and 5. However, some immunisations may be given at the hospital soon after birth or at school. Please check the UK immunisation schedule for more information on immunisations. Your child may be eligible for the flu vaccine, so please ask any of our clinicians.

Please remember to respond to our reminder letters when a vaccination is due. If you have any worries or concerns about the immunisations, please speak to your doctor or Nurse who will be happy to discuss this with you.

Diabetic clinic

The diabetic clinics are run by our Nurse Practitioners. For information on all aspects of diabetic care, please visit Diabetes UK and this site includes a useful guide to Type 2 diabetes.

Dressings and ulcer management

Our Nurses do change dressings for wounds and ulcers, but for long term management of these, you will be referred to the hospital. Additional dressings will be prescribed to those who are able to self-manage or have district nurses reviewing them.

Family planning and contraception

All our Doctors and Nurses give advice on family planning and contraception issues. Emergency contraception is available from our Doctors or Nurses and is effective if taken within 72 hours. We also insert coils at the Practice.

Flu & Pneumococcal vaccines

Flu and pneumococcal vaccines are administered by all our clinicians. They are offered to those who are over 65 and to those with chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease, kidney or liver disease or cancer.

Flu vaccines for the year tend to become available in the late autumn and are only effective for that season. So, every year we run special flu clinics to vaccinate all those who need it during this season. Your doctor might also give you this during your routine appointment.

Pneumococcal vaccinations are available all year round and are again offered to patients who are over 65 with chronic diseases.

To find out if you are eligible for any other vaccines please contact us.


As soon as you’re pregnant, tell a midwife or your GP.

The earlier you do this, the better, so that you can be booked in for your first scan. You don’t have to tell your friends and family at this stage if you don’t want to, but you should tell a midwife or your GP. You can self-refer directly to a midwife by ringing your local antenatal clinic or by visiting the hospital’s website (use links below) and filling in the self-referral form:

You can get a full pregnancy guide on NHS UK and Emma’s Diary and they cover all aspects of getting pregnant, pregnancy, labour and birth, your newborn, babies and toddlers.

Podiatry and foot

A podiatrist can assess a patient’s foot problem and provide them with treatment and self-care advice as appropriate to their individual needs. The service strives to support patients to self-manage their foot problems in order to improve and increase control over their foot health and you can self-refer for this service.

Removal of stitches

Please book to see a Nurse for the removal of stitches. Generally stitches should be removed after 5-7 days on the face, 10-14 days for skin over a joint and 7-10 days for all other skin. These times may vary according to the advice given by the clinicians and absorbable stitches do not need to be removed.

Sexual health services

Free sexual health services are available at a number of clinics across Haringey.

Smear tests & swabs

To pick up early signs of cervical cancer, we carry out routine smear tests once every 3 years on our female patients aged between 25 and 49 years. For those between 50 and 65 years smears will be done once every 5 years. However, tests will be performed more frequently if the results call for this. Vaginal swabs and tests for Chlamydia are not routinely carried out during cervical screening, but you can ask for separate appointments to have this done.

Please read Cervical screening for more information. Women who have read all the facts and wish to withdraw from the screening programme, can download and complete the form below. Please ensure you have read the “cervical screening – the facts” leaflet prior to completing the withdrawal form. Please post the completed form to the practice for our records.
