You will be invited to bring your child for the following checks:
- 8 week check (with post-natal check for the mother) by the GP

Drop in clinics are run by the health visitors on Fridays between 09:00 – 11:00 at Selby Children's Centre on Flaxley Road.
Your child will be invited in for vaccinations according to the current vaccination schedule.
All women aged 24½-65 are now offered a cervical smear test by the NHS
- Women between the ages of 24½ – 49 years will be invited every 3 years
- Women between the ages of 50 – 64 will be called every 5 years
- Women 65 and older will only be invited if there has been abnormal smears in the past.
You will receive a letter from the Health Authority on behalf of the Practice asking you to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse at the surgery for this test to be done. An information leaflet will also be sent to you explaining this procedure.
Regular smear tests are important, they pick up the early warning signals that could save your life.
See the NHS cancer screening website for more information.
The practice provides a full range of contraceptive services. Once your contraceptive service is set up, some of the routine checks can be done by the practice nurses. We have lots of young people in this practice and both the doctors and the nurses are especially experienced in dealing with contraception in young people.
Urgent “morning after” contraception is also available at the minor injuries unit at Selby War Memorial Hospital. (It can be used up to 72 hours after having sex)
Practice GPs perform Minor Surgical Operations in the practice.
You need to see your GP in a routine appointment to discuss this. Examples of the types of procedures we do are:
- Ingrowing toenail surgery
- Steroid injections
