Cervical smears are recommended every 3 years for ages 25-49 and every 5 years for ages 50-65. The test is quick and painless and can pick up very early changes in the cervix which are easily treated and which could otherwise eventually become cancerous. We operate a recall system and invite patients to make an appointment when their smear is due.
We provide a confidential service to all young persons, males and females, (including patients not registered with Lambgates) to advise on diet, exercise, lifestyle, smoking and sexual health.

Certain minor surgical procedures and joint injections are undertaken at surgery by appointment. The doctor will discuss this if applicable. We can also offer appointments to patients not registered with the practice.
NHS health checks are being offered to people aged between 40 and 74 every five years. The check is to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes. If there are any warning signs, then together we can do something about it.
The check should take about 20-30 minutes and is based on straightforward questions and measurements such as age, sex, family history, height, weight and blood pressure. There will also be a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol level.
Following the check, you will receive FREE personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy.

If you are travelling abroad, especially outside Europe you may need extra vaccinations. Travel schedules and advice on preventative measures for safety abroad are offered by us. Depending on the vaccinations required there may be a fee involved.
We hold our own vaccine stocks and are a designated yellow fever centre.
Information about countries and vaccinations required can be found on the links below:
It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 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.
If you are not registered at Lambgates Health Centre but are wanting to use our travel clinic services, we are more than happy to cater for your needs to the best of our abilities. However, a fee of £20 will be charged for a private consultation with one of our specialist nurses.
All vaccinations are to be payed for prior to your appointment.
