Meadowbank Health Centre also has its own pharmacy on site.

The practice nurse performs smears, Depo-Provera injections and routine contraceptive pill checks.

Ante Natal Checks

Pregnant patients are cared for routinely within the Health Centre by the visiting Poppy Team of midwives from Forth Valley Royal Infirmary as part of a shared care plan with the practice. Six weeks post natal the patient is advised to attend for a routine check by a doctor.

Baby Clinic

These are run by our practice nurses and a GP on a Tuesday afternoon and occasionally with our health visitors. Developmental check-ups and immunisations are done at these clinics along with your baby being weighed and advice given on minor aliments.

Minor Surgery

The treatment of warts, verrucae and skin tags can be carried out in this clinic after an initial consultation with a doctor.

Joint Injections

Steroid injections for the treatment of inflammatory joint conditions can be arranged where necessary with Dr Herron.  We recommend that you contact the surgery if considering this service for the first time to discuss your individual needs.

diabetesChronic Disease Management Clinics

These are run by the practice nurses with the assistance of our healthcare assistant. They cover chronic diseases which require regular monitoring such as diabetes, asthma and respiratory problems, heart problems, high blood pressure, epilepsy and thyroid disorders. Patients are contacted at regular intervals (usually yearly), usually by letter, and invited to attend for a review of their condition. For example, those with diabetes will first attend the healthcare assistant to have bloods and a basic health check, then be seen by a practice nurse two weeks later for the results.  In general we try to ask you to attend for a yearly check on your birth month - thus if you were born in October you should aim to get annual review every October. 

Smoking Cessation

Support clinics are available in the area and usually run at Meadowbank between 1pm and 2.30pm on Thursdays.  Call 01786 433293 or 07989155106 to find out more or see your local pharmacy.
