As well as general medical care we also offer the following:
These tests are carried out by the Practice Nurse. Please inform the receptionist when you are making the appointment that you will be having a smear teat. We follow the local policy which advises a smear every 3 or 5 years depending on age UNLESS the cytologist recommends repeating the smear more often.
We now offer a full range of contraceptive services, including coils and sub-dermal implants. Please ask whether a doctor or nurse appointment is appropriate for your needs.
Antenatal Clinics are held on alternate Thursday mornings with the community midwife. Appointments can be made with the receptionists.
The doctor carries out a health and development check for baby as well as a postnatal check for mum at 6-8 weeks after delivery.
It is important that your children are fully vaccinated. Baby's first vaccination appointments will be organised for you and sent to you via text message or a letter.

Flu vaccination is offered annually to those in at-risk groups as well as carers and health professionals. One-off vaccines are also available for pneumonia and shingles (aged 70 and over).
If you require routine vaccinations please make arrangements to see the Practice nurse.
NHS Health Checks
Between the ages of 40 to 75 you are entitled to a free NHS health check - the nurse will look at your lifestyle, blood pressure and blood results to help you reduce your risks of heart disease and other chronic illnesses.
We aim to review all patients who fall into any of the above on an annual basis. You should receive a telephone call requesting you to make an appointment with the nurse.
We strongly advise you to attend for your regular reviews when requested.
If you require any travel vaccinations/advice please complete the travel vaccination questionnaire below and hand in at reception. The Practice Nurse will review your questionnaire and contact you to discuss any actions we need to take.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to complete your questionnaire as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Certain services provided by the doctor are not covered by the NHS and you may be asked to pay a fee.
A list of our fees (as recommended by the British Medical Association) is held in the office.
Any fees payable go to the practice and not to any one individual. If you have any queries about fees or any other private medical services please discuss them with the practice manager.
We offer help and support to patients and their families about the diagnosis of dementia and referral for specialist services.
Once a diagnosis has been made we will arrange regular follow ups.
New Longton Surgery is registered as a Dementia Friendly organisation and we would like to encourage as many of our patients as possible to join us in becoming "dementia friends".
