PIP APPLICATIONS

As a Practice we no longer complete requests from DLA / Attendance allowance / PIP forms OR for supporting evidence.

We strongly believe that to get an accurate assessment a face to face consultation is vital.  This needs to be carried out by the agency making the decision about your application, not by your GP.

Clinics & Services

Maternity Services

The practice provides antenatal and postnatal care during normal surgery hours. A leaflet detailing our ante-natal services is available from reception.

Patients can self refer to antenatal / midwife  clinic via the following http://www.westerntrust.hscni.net/pdf/Self_Referral_to_Midwife_Form.pdf

or alternatively collect the form at our reception.

The Waterside Health Centre has been accredited as baby friendly for having adopted best practice standards in support of breast feeding.  Please enquire at main reception if you require a room to breast-feed.

Contraceptive Services

We offer a range of contraceptive services including emergency contraception. 

Chronic Disease Clinics

  • Asthma Clinic            
  • Diabetic Clinic                         
  • COPD Clinic

Smoking cessation advice is provided either in leaflet form available at reception or by appointment with the doctor.

Health Promotion Services

Health Promotion forms part of every consultation at the practice. Leaflets are also available from reception and in waiting areas.

Minor Surgical Procedures

Some of these are carried out in the treatment room after consultation with the doctor. 

Cervical Smears

The practice has a policy of routinely repeating cervical smears every five or three years.  Women will receive a letter of invitation from the regional cytology department or they can ask at the surgery for further information. 

Our nurse provides sessions for smears, which you may choose to attend.  Alternatively, you may wish to make an appointment with your doctor.

Well Baby Clinics

These are held on Friday mornings 09:00 – 11:00, by appointment only, for vaccination and development checks. Their purpose is to ensure the normal growth and development of children and to vaccinate them. 

As babies attending are not ill it is unfair to bring a sick child. 

If you miss an appointment and need to reschedule, please do not hesitate to ring the surgery. 

Treatment Room

The Health Centre Treatment Room is open between 09:00 – 17:15. You may be asked to attend at a particular time due to the nature of the test / treatment required. 

Carers

If you are a carer and require any information or access to services, please make an appointment to see your GP
