We hold the usual Ante-natal, Child Health Surveillance and Minor Surgery Clinics, with our two part-time Practice Nurses running the Diabetes, COPD, Asthma, Hypertension Clinics and CHD clinics.
Full contraceptive services are offered. We have an established in house Counselling service available that is provided by the Swindon Psychology Service. This service has won national awards for its innovative approach to psychology and counselling issues.
A Physiotherapy Clinic is held twice weekly and this has proved an invaluable addition to the services offered here at Great Western Surgery.
One partner practices acupuncture and was involved in a pilot project for the inclusion of alternative therapies in General Practice, receiving referrals for acupuncture treatment from other practices in the area. This pilot project has now ceased due to funding changes but obviously our own patients still have access to this alternative therapy.
Our practice also has an interest in Occupational Health and we currently look after a number of companies in the Swindon area.
