The nurses, healthcare assistant, health visitors and district nurses all help run various clinics detailed here, with the district nurses working mainly out in the community. There is also access to a phlebotomist and midwife, along with a treatment room, chiropody and physiotherapy department.
Meadowbank Health Centre also has its own pharmacy on site.
Family planning advice and pre-pregnancy counselling is available from any doctor. Coil fitting can be arranged for those women who wish this via Dr Newlands.
The practice nurse performs smears, Depo-Provera injections and routine contraceptive pill 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.
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.
The treatment of warts, verrucae and skin tags can be carried out in this clinic after an initial consultation with a doctor.
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.
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.
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.
Patients are responsible for self certification via their employer for the first 7 days of absence from work, following which medical certificates (for social security or statutory sick pay) can be obtained after consultation with a doctor.
Certain services we can provide are not covered by the NHS. In these cases you will be advised of the reasonable charge that will be made. Example fees can be found at reception. Examples of non NHS services are:
Letters to employers or council
Holiday insurance reports
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
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.
