The Services for Children & Young People at Longbow House, Shrewsbury, will automatically send a letter to you when your child is due to attend the child immunisation clinic, inviting you to make an appointment with us.

 

Please always bring your child's Red Record Book with you. If your child cannot attend their appointment, please let the surgery know, as well as the telephone number on your letter, as soon as possible, so that the cancellation may be offered to another patient.

 

Female Health

 

The doctors and nurses provide advice on family planning, including oral contraception, depot (injectable), implants, coils, contraceptive preparations and the fitting and checking of caps.

 

Cervical Smears

 

These are carried out by our specially trained practice nurses. You will receive written notification of your smear result, usually within 6 weeks of the test.

Blood Pressure Checks

 

As part of some of our routine clinics, you may be asked to undertake a series of home blood pressure readings if you have your own home blood pressure monitor. If so, please click the image below to download one of our forms below for recording your readings.
