We can also give advice about, and test for, sexually transmitted disease, although sometimes we may advise you that it is more appropriate for you to visit a specialist centre.
We immunise against infectious diseases which can cause death and disability and strongly recommend that all children should receive their full course of immunisation.
Other immunisations (e.g. Hepatitis B; Flu or Rubella) are advised according to age or risk. Please ask our reception staff for details.
Minor Surgery and Diathermy
Sessions are held for the removal of skin lesions, moles, warts, etc. that are causing discomfort. However, we cannot remove skin lesions for purely cosmetic purposes.
It is essential that patients have an appointment with the GP first so that the lesion can be properly assessed. If we are able to remove it at the surgery, we will arrange for patients to have an appointment at the minor surgery clinic.
For more information, contact Live Life Better Derbyshire on 01246 515550.

If you wish to discuss any part of your support while going though cancer or being a carer for a cancer patient, please contact us to arrange an appointment. You can also get help through our social prescribing service and many services are on the NHS website or https://www.cancercaremap.org/.
Team Up Derby
We work closely with Derby City Council (DCC) and Derbyshire Community Health Services (DCHS) are we are aware they are proposing to enter a new partnership to jointly deliver a range of health and care support services in Derby. These services are aimed at helping people remain and live independently at home for as long as possible. GPs are also involved in these services which are commonly known as rehabilitation and reablement.
Derby City Council and Derbyshire Community Health Services are proposing to come together to create a single service that supports people to stay at home when their health or care needs change, and to help people who need help after a hospital stay. These services aim to help people recover from ill health or help people who may have an urgent and changing situation at home such as a disruption to their normal health and care routine.
In Derby we are supporting about 380 people per week to stay at, or return home, whether that be in an urgent crisis or if they are returning home after being treated in hospital.
However, not everyone currently can access this support when they need it. This is causing some people to be delayed from leaving hospital or having to wait at home for an assessment of their needs for much longer than we would like.
We would like to ask you to participate in a short on line survey about the Council and DCHS’s plans to help inform these developments. The survey can be accessed on the link below and is available until the 18th November 2023. There are also details of how to obtain paper copies rather than using an on line version:
We look forward to your participation and thank you for reading.
