Treatment Room/Cervical Screening

Treatment Room

You can book to see nurse at our clinic for the range of services below. The nurses will also give telephone advice, although you may be asked for a contact number for them to phone back if they are busy when you call. Did you know we offer appointments on Saturday mornings at Alexandra Avenue? Amongst many things done in the treatment room are:
Minor operations
The doctor will help you book sufficient time with both the doctor and the nurse at your initial consultation (not available on weekends)
Some patients require dressings for ulcers and wounds. The nurses will be pleased to advise you when it is most appropriate to attend for a change of dressing.

Treatment of minor cuts and wounds; for a deep wound or when an X-ray might be necessary it may be more efficient to go to Mount Vernon Minor Injuries Unit or Northwick Park Accident and Emergency Department.
Blood tests, ECGs and Lung Function tests
Our healthcare assistant, Pauline, will be happy to take blood test, check your weight, height and blood pressure. She helps the clinical team with other tasks such and performing ECG recordings and lung function tests.

The doctor who organises your test will tell you whether or not you need to fast overnight.  Other specimens; please deliver them to the surgery in the mornings as many samples will become spoiled if they are delivered after our hospital collection has been made at lunchtime.

We offer a full range of family planning services including contraception services (pill, cap, coil and injections), advice on safe sex, confidential services for the under 16's, emergency contraception and referral for unwanted pregnancy under the 1967 abortion Act.
Cervical Screening
On a 3 yearly recall programme. You can have smear at any time during your cycle, even if you are actively bleeding. If you do not feel comfortable asking for a smear appointment from reception, please ask for a Well Woman's appointment with a nurse. We also recommend that all women over 50 participate in the national mammographic screening programme. 

A short film about cervical screening, also know as the smear test. Our video was made to help women understand how they will be invited for a smear test, what happens during the test and why the test can help to prevent cervical cancer.

Każdego dnia u ośmiu kobiet diagnozowany jest rak szyjki macicy, a trzy z nich umiera z powodu tej choroby. Jednak rakowi szyjki macicy można w znacznym stopniu zapobiegać poprzez program badań przesiewowych NHS i program szczepień przeciwko wirusowi HPV (wirusowi brodawczaka ludzkiego). W Wielkiej Brytanii 1 na 4 kobiety nie korzysta z zaproszenia na badania przesiewowe szyjki macicy (wymaz).
