Antenatal clinics are currently held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Buckshaw Village Surgery with Medicare Unit patients specifically allocated for the Wednesday clinics.
Patients are seen by the midwife at the clinics by appointment and also by the doctors during surgery hours.
Maternity Medical Services - You can self-refer to the maternity unit (i.e. you do not need to see the GP). Click here for more information.
The baby clinics take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Medicare Unit for child developmental checks and immunisations and allow an opportunity to discuss other problems, eg sleeping, feeding and child health worries, with a doctor. Some appointments are also available at Adlington Medical Centre.
Contraceptive care is provided by the nurse during surgery hours.
Well Woman/Man Clinics
This clinic is run during surgery hours by the nurse and is by appointment only.
The doctor is happy to carry out medicals, eg insurance and HGV and taxi licences by appointment outside surgery hours. Please telephone the surgery for an appointment. Do ask at reception for the charges for these services.
Patients Over 75 Years
If you are aged 75 years or over, you should be seen annually either by the doctor or the practice nurse. This can be arranged at the surgery or, if that is not possible, a home visit will be arranged.
Please make an appointment at least three weeks in advance of your holiday to ensure adequate cover. A charge will be made for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS. A list of these charges is held at reception.

An influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients with heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes and residents of nursing and residential homes.
Please contact the reception staff in September for details of the vaccination dates and to make an appointment. If you are unable to attend the surgery, a home visit will be arranged to undertake this facility.
