You will need to see a GP initially for assessment of suitablity for minor surgery and after this you will be put on the waiting list and contacted when an appointment is available.
We aim to run at least one clinic a month.
Verrucas and Hand Warts
Please note that we no longer treat verrucas or warts with cryotherapy. Studies have shown that there is no clinical evidence that cryotherapy is more effective than other over-the-counter treatments.
Verrucas are a minor transient infection which your body will get over and If they are troubling you can speak to your pharmacist or read the patient leaflet on the Patient UK link on our website for more advice.
Baby Clinics are now held by the Health Visitors at the Children and Family Centre, Hargate Way, Hampton Hargate, Peterborough, PE7 8BZ.
The clinics take place on Tuesdays between 1.30am & 3pm. The Health Visitor contact phone number is 01733 746729. Please also see our immunisations page from details of baby immunisation clinics.
To prevent a delay in protecting your baby, please ensure that you have booked an appointment with a GP for your baby’s 6 week check to confirm that they are fit to start their course of routine immunisations. This check must be done before your baby can receive their first injections which are given by a Practice Nurse. Further information on the immunisations are available online through the NHS Choices website www.nhs.uk

Vaccination against Shingles
This year you are eligible for the shingles immunisation if you are aged 70 or 78 years old. In addition anyone who was eligible but missed out in the last 3 years may still have it until their 80th birthday.
Since 2015 people aged 80 and over are not part of the national programme because the vaccine seems to be less effective in this age group.
NHS Health Checks at Hampton Health
If you are between the ages of 40 and 74 you will receive a letter inviting you to Hampton Health to have a Health Check, and if you feel perfectly healthy you may not see any point in making an appointment for this. The NHS provides for a health check once every 5 years.
The purpose of the Health Check is to help you stay healthy and prevent you developing illnesses like heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.
These conditions can often be prevented even if you have a history of them in your family and through coming in for a Health Check we can work with you to lower your chances of developing these health problems in the future.
The Health Check takes about 20-30 minutes and consists of some simple questions about your family history and any medication you are currently taking. We will also record your height, weight, age, sex and ethnicity and take your blood pressure and do a simple blood test to check your cholesterol level.
The results of your NHS Health Check will give us a clearer picture of your health and your health risks and we will be able to discuss how we can support you to reduce your risk and stay healthy either through personalised advice on maintaining a healthy lifestyle or by treatment or medication to help you maintain your health.
If you are invited for a Health Check please make a New Years Resolution to make that appointment!
By taking action you will improve your chance for a longer healthier life. For more information about NHS Health Checks please visit www.nhs.uk/nhshealthcheck
