The Speech and Language Therapists see both adults and children with communication difficulties. They also see patients with certain feeding and swallowing problems. Patients are seen at Fyfe Park Clinic, in schools or at home. Appointments are made following referral from a GP or Nurse.
Health worries? Skin problems – acne? Diet – are you eating properly? Worried about your weight? Are you getting enough exercise? Contraception – don’t leave it till it’s too late. Pregnant? Don’t just sit and worry. Emergency Contraception – you have 72 hours after sex to get this. We can help with lots of problems. You are not on your own – sharing a problem is always a good start. We are here to listen, not to tell, so come and talk to a doctor or nurse.
To make an appointment you can phone us on 01467 642289 or visit the practice. We are available Monday – Friday 08:00 - 18:00.
We no longer have a dedicated Well Woman Clinic time, but appointments can still be arranged with a GP or nurse for all procedures. We offer advice and treatment on hormone replacement therapy, the menopause, period and continence problems, cervical screening, breast awareness, post-natal checks, implants and coil insertion.
