There are morning and afternoon surgeries held by the doctors for general medical problems. Not all doctors are available on every day.
We will always see patients who feel that their problem is urgent on the same day, or suggest a alternative course of action if we feel this is more appropriate.
Prescribing of the contraceptive pill is usually done in routine surgery hours, as is advice regarding all types of contraception, by appointment. We fit intrauterine contraceptive devices (coils) and fit and remove Implanon. Cervical smears are generally carried out by our practice nurses, who can also carry out pill checks and offer advice on Hormone Replacement Therapy and breast checks.
Most patients who suffer from diabetes are offered an appointment with a nurse at regular intervals (usually every 6 months). The asthma clinic is for the regular review of asthmatics concentrating on education about asthma and the proper use of asthma inhalers and medicines. We also provide regular follow up for patients with other long term health problems such as chronic airways disease, chronic heart disease, epilepsy and mental health problems.
These clinics are carried out by our visiting community midwife, who will arrange for you to see a doctor if she feels it is necessary.
We carry out minor surgery on the premises. These are carried out by one of the GPs who is experienced and qualified in this area. If we do not feel we can carry out the procedure for you we will arrange for a referral to someone else. A prior consultation is required to assess suitability and you should make an appointment in a normal surgery for this. We can also carry out various injections and cryotherapy (freezing skin lesions), often during normal surgery.
(Please note that travel vaccinations are only available to patients of Liquorpond Surgery).
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
An initial appointment needs to be made at least 4 weeks before you travel as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Please note: If your travel date is less than 4 weeks away, you will be advised to attend a travel clinic for your vaccinations.
Travel Health Questionnaire
If you would like travel health advice, please fill out and submit the online form below. If you then come in to the surgery 4 or 5 working days later, we will have the relevant information available for you to take away and read.
