Dr Faizy runs a minor surgery clinic. During this session joint injections and removal of minor skin lesions can be performed.
It is always wise to ask your GP to assess whether or not any skin lesion would be suitable for removal at the practice, prior to making an appointment in the minor surgery clinic. We cannot remove facial lesions.
Flu injections are available from October every year for those considered at risk. If you would like to know more about when you can get a Flu jab, please contact the practice and speak to the reception team.
If you think you need a booster for any other vaccines please make an appointment to discuss this with the practice nurse.
