Cervical Cytology (Smears)

All routine cervical smears are undertaken by our Practice Nurses.  National guidelines state that routine smears should commence at age 25 and continue at 3-yearly intervals up to the age of 50.  After the age of 50, guidelines state that the interval should be 5 years.

Book a clinic appointment with any of our nurses at the Practice or ask about availability in the Extended Hours clinics held on evenings and weekends.

 Seasonal Flu Clinics

Flu clinic information

If you come to the Practice for your vaccination and you are also eligible for the pneumonia vaccine and/or the shingles vaccine we will try and provide this at the same time. All the money that we earn from NHS England for providing this service goes back into the day to day running of the Practice to help us provide services all year round.

Peel House Medical Practice Flu Vaccination Clinic Information September 2020

Due to the current need to reduce the number of people in the Practice at all times, this year we will be offering flu vaccinations by pre-booked appointment only.  Please ring the Practice on 01254282282 to book your appointment.

These clinics will take place in our waiting area and you should arrive at the time of your appointment and book in with the receptionist.  If you arrive too early you will be asked to wait outside the building until your appointment time.

Please help us by only bringing someone with you if absolutely necessary.  You should wear a face covering at all times while in the building.

We are unable to offer any other vaccinations or treatment within these clinics as we have to carefully manage the number of people booked in with the additional time required for cleaning all surfaces regularly.

Clinics will run from Monday 5th October and will be available at various times.

These patients will receive their invitations over the next few weeks:

  • Over 65y
  • 2-3 year olds
  • Anyone under 65y who is eligible due to a medical condition, was shielding or a registered carer
  • Pregnant women (this may be given at your antenatal appointment by a midwife)

We are waiting for NHS England to provide us with dates for inviting

  • Patients between 50 and 64y who are not already eligible

If you are a frontline healthcare worker or you live in the same house as someone who was shielding then you should also have a flu vaccination.   Please contact your GP Practice to arrange this.
