blood_takingNursing Services

We provide a full nursing service to include cervical smears, childhood immunisations, flu jabs, diabetes and asthma/COPD checks and blood tests.


Smoking Cessation

We provide NHS stop smoking services at Pavilion Medical Centre.

If you decide to give up, you will be seen on a one-to-one basis and will be offered appropriate treatment including nicotine replacement therapy, such as patches, gum, lozenges, microtabs, inhalators and nasal sprays.  

We can also prescribe bupropion (Zyban), a drug that reduces the craving for nicotine. This isn't for everyone as it can cause epileptic fits in people prone to them and can affect liver and blood pressure, so needs close monitoring. Some people do very well with the medication, so it's worth considering.  

There is also a recently introduced drug called varenicline (Champix), which blocks the effect of nicotine in the brain.  

Patients can book to see our nurse or one of the GP’s by calling the surgery. Other resources: Link to NHS Lambeth leaflet


Diabetes

The practice provides diabetes checkups for all those affected by, or have a family history of diabetes. We are fortunate to be supported by the Lambeth Diabetes Intermediate Care Team to support the practice.

Emergency postcoital contraception is available, up to 120 hours after unprotected sex by hormonal methods, or 5 days by fitting IUCD (coil). Click here for more information

An appointment will always be made for you as necessary. We can refer for termination of pregnancy, where appropriate, regardless of age. We can also give details of specialist contraceptive services.


Chlamydia Screening

As part of a national programme, we offer screening for chlamydia and gonorrhoea, aimed at young men and women. This is a simple and painless urine test for people who do not have any symptoms.  We also offer routine sexual health screening.


Mental Health

We have counselling and psychology services available at the practice. There are also strong links with our local community health team.

We work closely with a number of services offering support and treatment for people with drug or alcohol problems, and now have a weekly specialist clinic on Friday mornings with the Lambeth Community Drug & Alcohol Team, offering advice for any drug or alcohol problems. Ask at reception for an appointment.


Primary Care Psychology Services

Lambeth IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapy) is a team of 36 mental health workers, including clinical and counselling psychologists, CBT therapists and psychological wellbeing practitioners, providing CBT and guided self help for people with common mental illnesses (predominately anxiety disorders and depression) across the borough of Lambeth. We have three additional target groups- those suffering the effects of worklessness , BME communities, and offenders and ex offenders.

 


Non NHS services

The NHS may not cover certain things; for instance, visitors from abroad may not always be eligible for free treatment (although emergencies are always covered). We can also provide certain services outside the NHS, such as LGV or Taxi medicals, insurance examinations, for which a fee is payable. Our charges for these are listed in reception and attached.  Private fees.   We do not countersign passports.
