Female Contraception Clinics are held at each site, alternating on a weekly basis. There are lunch time sessions and also evening sessions for patients who work. At High Green the lunchtime session is on a Tuesday and at Burncross it is on a Thursday. Both sessions start at 11:40.
The evening clinics take place on a Tuesday with a doctor and practice nurse in attendance. We offer a wide range of contraceptive services that now includes coil fittings that are available once a month at High Green Health Centre.
If you require emergency contraception this should be taken as soon as possible, please inform the receptionists and you will be allocated a nurse triage telephone call. Due to a change in regulations for the emergency contraceptive, anyone over the age of sixteen can buy it over the counter from a pharmacy.
Some pharmacies are able to provide free prescriptions for the emergency contraceptive; we would advise calling the pharmacy first to check they can provide that service.

First appointments for baby clinic are invited centrally by Child Health Services in Sheffield. This is usually made for when your baby is eight weeks old. At the first appointment baby is examined by one of the doctors and immunisations are given by the nurse. Two further appointments are then arranged at around 12 weeks and 16 weeks.
Further recalls are arranged by Child Health Services in Sheffield at twelve months and at three years old.
Preschool booster vaccinations are now given during general nursing clinics.

Flu vaccination, Diabetic, Hypertension and Asthma clinics are available through the surgery and are by invitation through your doctor or practice nurse. Appointments for all these clinics can be made at reception.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

I have been involved with SYEDA for a year and wanted to share some information about the services. We have seen an increased number of eating disorders in young people and that is where SYEDA can be very helpful - they offer counselling and support for both patient and family. Along with other activities they organise free Yoga sessions where patients can attend as part of their relaxation techniques.
We have been raising awareness amongst young people in Barnsley and Rotherham College and the feedback is always positive, as a lot of young people find it difficult to talk about the issue. We also talk about body image and social media and how to overcome issues 'millennials' (those born post year 2000) are faced with more than ever before.
