The Northumberland Joint Musculoskeletal and Pain Service (JMAPS).
Patients in Northumberland with musculoskeletal conditions or persistent pain can access The Northumberland Joint Musculoskeletal and Pain Service (JMAPS).
Specialist staff including musculoskeletal physiotherapists, clinical psychologists, specialist nurses and rehabilitation therapists can assess, advise and support you to manage your condition with the aim of improving your health and wellbeing.
Ante-natal clinics are held every Monday afternoon.
In addition parentcraft classes are available on a Monday evening 6pm to 8pm
Patients taking Warfarin, or other drugs which need regular blood monitoring can attend the surgery for blood tests. You will be notified if this applies to you.
We advise all our patients with asthma to attend an annual review.
Our practice nurses and doctors undertake cervical smears. Women aged 25-50 should have a smear every three years, women aged 50-65 should have a smear every five years (or more frequently if indicated).
A fully trained counsellor is available to discuss mental health issues and personal problems.
Regular check-ups are offered to all patients with diabetes to help maintain good control of the condition and prevent complications.
Family planning and contraception
We offer confidential contraceptive and family planning advice and services during normal surgery hours.
This includes the fitting of contraceptive devices (coils), condom information and pre-conception advice.
We offer a full range of vaccinations for foreign travel. Please arrange an appointment with the practice nurse for any advice about travel health. Ideally appointments should be made at least six weeks prior to travel. Please note a second appointment may be required to receive your vaccinations.
It would help us plan your individual programme of vaccinations if you could come for your appointments with information about the proposed destination, particularly with regard to complicated travel schedules.
Appointments are offered to all patients with angina or heart failure, who have had a heart attack or stroke, or who are at high risk of developing heart disease. The aim is to review the condition and treatment, and lower risk factors in order to prevent further illness.
Regular clinics are held with a clinical psychologist who can help with a wide range of emotional and relational problems.
Advice and support is offered by our practice nurses for patients who wish to give up smoking.
A full range of vaccinations and immunisations are available for both adults and children, including flu, tetanus, meningitis and hepatitis.
The surgery provides a number of other non-NHS services such as signing certificates and forms – there will be a charge for these services.
