We appreciate that with work commitments it might not be possible for people to attend the relevant clinic on a particular day. In circumstances such as these an appointment will be made for you when it is convenient for you to come in.
We also provide the following clinics, please ask a member of the reception team if you need to make an appointment:
When you come for your blood test the Health Care Support Workers or Practice Nurses will explain the procedure about gaining your results. If your blood tests form part of your annual review then you will need to book into the relevant nurse led clinic where she will go through the results with you. If your blood tests have been requested by the GP you will need to book in with the GP who requested the tests after about a week to ensure that we get all of the relevant tests back. Can we suggest that this appointment with the GP is arranged once patients have had their blood tests and before they leave the surgery premises.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.

Apsley Surgery has a very popular stop smoking clinic otherwise known as smoking cessation. The process involves an initial appointment with a member of the nursing team who will discuss the options of nicotine replacement with you and the impact that giving up smoking will have on your long term health. You are then asked to make another appointment to come back where you decide what therapy you want to start with. You don't need to be registered with Apsley Surgery to take advantage of this service. We see all patients regardless of where you are registered!
If at anytime the therapy you have chosen is not suitable for you please call the surgery and ask to speak with your stop smoking advisor who can discuss further options over the telephone and offer more support as needed. We keep in regular contact with you during this process so you are not going through it alone, this can be done either in face to face appointments in the surgery or through a telephone consultation. There is no set times for smoking clinics we will try and fit around your commitments.
If you want to give up smoking, please contact the surgery for more information or visit the Facebook page:
We are able to perform minor surgery and joint injections at the surgery. Please make an appointment to see Dr Zulfiker to review you and discuss whether you could benefit of having a minor surgery procedure performed in practice.
