Clinics and Services
We offer oral contraceptive advice, pill checks, depot injections and coil checks. Nurses primarily deal with contraception however GP's are also able. King's Medical Centre is also a collection point for condoms under the C-Card Scheme.
Dr Chakraborty and Dr Yadlapalli provide minor surgery services within the practice. This means you may be able to have a small operation or joint injection at the surgery instead of the hospital.
Over 40's Health Checks
The Practice offers health checks to all patients between the age of 40 and 75. Please contact the surgery to arrange an appointment if you are in this age range. Health Check

All vaccinations necessary for travel to other countries, (with the exception of yellow fever) are given by our nurses. These are done by appointment. The nursing team will check what vaccinations are required by viewing your previous records. Please contact reception 8 weeks before departure for further advice.
Health promotion and screening of lifestyle activities are performed by our practice nurses and doctors. The areas covered include: smoking, diet, exercise, alcohol, blood pressure screening and well person checks.

The midwife, Amanda Tucker currently holds an antenatal clinic on a Tuesday and Thursday.
New baby clinics are held on a Tuesday for baby's 1st vaccination and Mum's postnatal check.
The doctors all feel that it is essential to protect children by making sure that they have the full programme of immunisation. We have a computerised call-up system and most children will receive an automatic appointment at the right time. If you feel that your child is overdue an injection, please contact the surgery.
