Services & Fees
Ross Family Practice provides a wide range of General Practice services. Most are outlined below but if you are unsure, please ask.
Our appointments are in 15-minute slots. We would be grateful if you could bear this in mind. If there is a particular service you require, please indicate this to the receptionist as certain appointments require different scheduling.
We may not be able to cover a list of issues at a single appointment. In fact, if we try to cover too much there is a risk of rushing through the more important issue. We want you to feel that we have dealt with the important issues in a comprehensive manner. If an additional appointment or follow up is required, we are more than happy to schedule this.
Cervical smear checks, breast examinations, menstrual issues, menopause, fertility etc.
It is a fact that men attend their GP less frequently than women. We are very sensitive to men’s needs and are happy to discuss any issues you may have.
Six-week baby check, childhood vaccinations, management of acute illness and any ongoing issues your child may have.
We provide antenatal care under the Maternity and Infant Care Scheme. This means that antenatal care is free for all women. Please note that visits unrelated with your pregnancy are not covered by the scheme, and if you do not have a medical or doctor visit card, there will be a charge for such appointments.
We provide evidence-based management for many chronic diseases including Diabetes, Heart Failure, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Asthma.
We provide a full range of contraceptive services. We are happy to discuss your individual contraceptive needs so you can make informed choices about the best method for you. We are very experienced at fitting Mirena/Kyleena Coils and Implanons. While we do not provide vasectomies on-site, we are happy to discuss this with you and direct you to an appropriate service. Please feel free to make an appointment as a couple to discuss the female and male options so you can choose the best method for both your needs.
It can be difficult to discuss your mental health. Rest assured we will be very understanding and provide you with the appropriate treatment options.
We provide these reports for patients registered with our practice.
