Clinics & Services
In addition to general medical consultations we are pleased to offer the following special clinics and services:
All diabetic patients who are not monitored through the hospital will be reviewed at the surgery. You will be able to see the podiatrist, dietician or the diabetic nurse. This clinic is held on a Monday afternoon between 13:00 – 17:30 at Pelton Surgery.
Asthma and COPD Clinics
The surgery routinely requests all asthmatic and COPD patients to attend a yearly clinic to check how they are doing. If you feel you need to be seen before this you can make an appointment with a doctor.
We are able to offer minor surgery appointments for small procedures such as cyst removal and in-growing toe nails. Please make a routine appointment with a GP and your name will be placed on a waiting list and you will be informed when a minor surgery appointment is available.

Comprehensive confidential advice is available during normal surgery times. Prescriptions for oral contraceptives can be given. Both intra uterine devices and contraceptive implants can also be fitted, however these are classed as minor surgeries and will need a routine GP appointment to assess there suitability.
