Cervical Smears

These are available by appointment with the practice nurse.

Patients who are confined to their homes and need nursing assistance may arrange for a Community Nurse to call. The hospital will normally arrange for a nurse to call on patients who are discharged but need nursing care.

If you need to contact the community nurse you can ring 01594 563 154 and leave a message and someone will contact you.

Maternity Care

Antenatal care is provided by our midwife. Please make an appointment.

Postnatal examinations are carried out by the GP eight weeks after birth.

Joint Injections

Dr Michael Andrew, Dr Andrew Edwards, and Dr Jonathan Cleary perform joint injections. Please make an appointment in the surgery first to arrange a mutually convenient time.


Blood tests are by appointment with the phlebotomist. Appointments may be made online.

Family Planning And Contraception

They are also able to give advice on emergency contraception.

If you have been advised by the surgery to complete a review of your contraception, you will need to fill out our Contraception Review Form.

Forest of Dean Spirometry Service
