Please contact reception to make an appointment for the vaccinations.

Breast Examinations

It is a good idea for all women to examine their breasts regularly for lumps. If you are not sure how to do this, the doctor will be happy to advise. If you should notice any lumps in your breasts, please see the doctor. Most lumps are not serious, but it is important to have any possible abnormality checked.

Cervical Smear Test

Cancer of the cervix can be prevented therefore all female patients between the ages of 25 and 65 are advised to have regular smear tests.

  • women between the ages of 25-49 are invited for cervical screening every three years
  • women between the ages of 50-64 are invited for cervical screening every five years

These are important because they can detect early signs of the disease, which would then be easily treated. We operate a call and recall system to remind you about the tests, which are carried out during special surgeries within the practice, a nurse visits the surgery on a monthly basis from the family planning clinic in Omagh to carry out a Smear Clinic.
