Medical examinations for insurance policies, HGV or PSV drivers, elderly drivers, sub-aqua purposes etc, can be arranged by appointment. As these invariably do not come under your doctor's terms of NHS service, a fee will be charged.
New Patient Consultations
Every patient registering with Crystal Peak Medical Centre will have the opportunity of a new patient consultation. The appointment gives you a chance to meet us, have your health checked and bring to light any ongoing medical problems or important past medical history, including continuing your medication. Your appointment may be with your doctor, a practice nurse or the Health Care Assistant.
Well Woman / Cervical Smear Clinic
All women aged 25 - 65, who have ever been sexually active need a regular cervical smear test detect any early changes that might lead to cancer later on. The CCG invites patients on a routine basis for a cervical smear, blood pressure check, urine test and teaching on breast self-awareness. The routine appointments are offered as follows:
- Women aged 25 - 49 years - once every 3 years
- Women aged 50 - 65 years - once every 5 years
Children and Teenagers
Health Visitors are available to monitor the growth and well being of children and to give support and advice to parents on issues such as feeding, development, sleeping and behavioural problems. They are a knowledgable point of contact and can direct you to other services and agencies if appropriate.
Infants and children up to 5yo are seen by appointment in the joint Health Visitor/Dr clinics which are held weekly in the afternoon.
We would generally prefer a parent or guardian to attend with a child or teenager. However there are circumstances when a teenager may wish to be seen alone, for confidentiality reasons. Hence we will see those 13 and over unaccompanied, but depending on the problem, they may be asked to re-consult with a parent or guardian
We are committed to helping those who wish to obtain help with smoking cessation.
Our practice policy is based on both the local Sheffield Stop Smoking Service (SSSS) and NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) Guidelines and is updated annually
There are several ways you can get help:
- Direct self-referral to the Sheffield Stop Smoking Service: 0800 068 4490
- Make an appointment to see either a Practice Nurse or GP at the practice.We will generally encourage you to obtain behavioural support, as this improves your chances of quitting. However this is NOT an absolute pre-requisite for obtaining smoking cessation aids on prescription, and this depends on personal circumstances
- Approach your local Pharmacist, where they are part of the accredited SSSS scheme
Self care is about looking after yourself in a healthy way. It can be anything from brushing your teeth, doing some exercise, managing common conditions (like headaches, colds and flu) or living with a long-term health problem, such as asthma or diabetes.
As a Self Care Aware practice we are here to help you feel able to look after your own health when it is right for you. So, when you come in for a consultation, the doctors, nurses and healthcare assistants in this practice will talk to you about what you can do to help maintain and improve your health.
