Child Surveillance

We offer this service to children who are registered at the practice. Your child is offered development checks at regular intervals before school age. The health visitor may carry out some of these checks, often at home. This will enable you to discuss any problems and ask any questions concerning your child's immunisations, development and behaviour.

Contraceptive Services

We offer full contraceptive services and advice, and some of our nurses are also family planning trained. We also provide emergency contraception and contraceptive services to non-patients.

Antenatal Clinic

The midwife holds her routine antenatal clinic on a Tuesday afternoon. Your first ante-natal appointment is for one hour and these appointments are held on a Wednesday afternoon.  Please call reception to book an appointment.  Please note that you do not need to book an appointment with the GP to confirm your pregnancy.

Cervical Smear Screening

In line with health authority policy, we recommend a smear every three years until the age of 50 and then every 5 years until the age of 65, unless greater frequency is advised. To ensure maximum accuracy, it is advisable to have a smear taken between 10 and 14 days from the first day of bleeding.

Minor Surgery

All partners perform some surgical procedures, albeit you may be referred to another partner for a particular operation in which they have special experience.

Medical Examination

Medical examinations for special purposes, for example pre-employment, fitness to travel and insurance medical, may be arranged by special appointment. A fee will be payable.  For details of fees please go to the Non-NHS Services tab.

Anticoagulant Clinic

An 'in-house' anticoagulant clinic is held twice weekly at Baddow Village Surgery, providing a convenient and comprehensive service.

Chaperone

If you feel you would like a chaperone present at a consultation during a procedure please let the GP or nurse know.

District Nurses/Community Matrons

Provide a range of nursing services and help with long term conditions for housebound patients.

IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies)

Provide a cognitive behavioural therapy service based at the surgery.  More details are available in the 'Further Information' section on the right hand side of the page.

Health Promotion

We offer advice and practical help to those patients who want to improve or maintain their health.

Our nurses have specific training in areas such as asthma, diabetes, smoking, alcohol and heart disease prevention. Please ask the nurse for details.

We encourage all our patients to share responsibility for their health, both in preventing disease and in treating existing diseases. Most of the more serious diseases can be prevented by a healthy lifestyle and without the need for drugs. Please feel free to discuss general health and your lifestyle and ask for advice.
