Clinics & Services

Diabetes

For all our diabetic patients you will be asked each year to book in for a blood test, a urine test and a foot check with one of our Health Care Advisors. We will contact you when you are required to make an appointment. You may also be invited for other services held elsewhere such as diabetic eye screening.

We unfortunately no longer have a dedicated Diabetes Nurse

Midwife

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING MIDWIFE APPOINTMENTS – July 2024

Due to changes at UHCW, midwife appointments have now changed for all members of the practice who live in CV1 to CV6 postcodes/ all patients who pay their council tax to Coventry. As our practice locations cross over between the Coventry and Warwickshire border, we currently offer appointments to those living between CV1 to CV6 postcodes at our main surgery with a midwife that comes from UHCW and for those who live at CV7 postcodes and up are, they are offered appointments at our Bennetts Road North Surgery with a midwife that comes from George Eliot Hospital. This is not a decision the practice makes and it does not affect which hospital you would like to give birth in. Recently, UHCW have changed their internal systems which means the way you book appointments have now changed. For those affected we can no longer book appointments for the midwife, appointments must be dealt directly with UHCW. You can do this by going to their website here or by coming into our main surgery and scanning the QR code we have at reception. These changes do NOT affect those in CV7 post codes and above who pay council tax to Warwickshire, you can still contact the surgery to book in for your regular midwife appointments. These changes do not effect the location of your appointments as you will still be seen at Park Leys Medical Practice, this only changes how you are able to book these appointments. If you have any questions please contact reception by calling or e-consultation for further advice.

Phlebotomy

We offer blood clinic’s all throughout the week, at all three of our surgeries. The majority of our blood test appointments take place before 12pm, although we are beginning to offer a few select appointments between 12pm – 4pm, depending on availability. If you are unable to make these times or are under 16 years of age, please visit Swift Queue to search local clinics in your area and collect the blood form from the surgery prior to your appointment.

You must have already have spoken with a clinician to obtain a blood test form prior to booking in for a blood test appointment. 

Please allow at least 5 days for your results. Your GP will only contact a patient in the case of urgent test results, for all other results you must contact the surgery by calling or using the e-consultation service. While we make every effort to send messages to patients about booking in for a routine telephone call for any non-urgent test results that come back as needing to be discussed, due to the sheer volume of patients we have this is not always possible.  

Family Planning (Coils and Implant Fitting only)

To book in for a coil or implant with us please contact the surgery to arrange a phone call with Dr Erica Smith.
