Keep Your Details up to Date
Please do update your contact details (box at the bottom of screen) with home and mobile. You will receive appointment reminders and occasional requests for information by text.


Patients are quite rightly getting more and more frustrated at not getting what they want, when they want it! Please be assured that we are your advocates and we act in your best interests. But we do have to prescribe cost-effectively, and refer for medical reasons when we can't manage your problem, not simply for your peace of mind. You will not find a GP practice these days which will oblige your every wish without discussion!


Photo ID

You may be asked for a photo for our records. This reduces problems where patients are mistaken for each other when they consult another GP within the practice. PHONE CALLS may be recorded for your protection.


Sickness Certificates

The first 7 days of sickness do not require a certificate from your GP. If your employer insists on a sickness form, complete a Self-Certification form, which can be found here



FAMILY PLANNING contraception advice youth

pregnant Contraceptive Advice  is available from all the doctors.  There are a number of methods  of family planning to suit all women.  We would be especially sensitive to the needs of young people, particularly confidentiality.   Emergency contraception “morning after pill” is best taken as soon as possible after having unprotected sex, In this practice, everybody can be seen the same morning, but if you are at work and cannot get here, please call to speak to a doctor on the telephone, or for 13-25y olds try certain chemists 


If you are taking the oral contraceptive pill, please remember to ensure you have your blood pressure checked by nurse every six months or ask a participating chemist to check it and let us know the result on your request slip. 
If you work, do visit one of the local FamilyPlanning/Sexual Health Clinics listed below
They will also be able to fit coils which we cannot currently do for you, and run a HRT and Well Woman service.  Menstrual Reminders!


Unwanted Pregnancies
All the doctors find it very hard to deal with the situation where a woman falls pregnant, despite sensible contraception. We find it even harder when the woman has not taken up the offer of Long Acting Contraception, such as coils, implants, depo. 
We are a Christian practice and Abortion is against our principles.
We will however support the difficult decision of the individual woman who bears the responsibility of her choice, because an unwanted pregnancy may mean an unwanted child. 
Any women in such trouble should come and see their own GP as soon as possible (Dr Cockbain's patients should see another GP here) for a balanced discussion on what their options are.
Self referral 0345 872 5503
A useful site is MarieStopes to get information on Early Medical Abortion, . BPAS.
Private companies will be advertising for your abortion. Advertising works! Look at what you're wearing. You have a choice, but that choice starts with using sensible effective contraception.


Hopefully planned, and with a partner who is supportive & will help you with the difficult job of bringing up the child in a loving environment with a good education to help the child get on well in society/work.

You should be taking pregnancy vitamins from before you got pregnant, vitamin D / folic acid from chemist. You should have discussed any repeat medicines with your GP. You should have given up alcohol, and be wary of soft cheeses/pates.

As soon as you find out you are pregnant, please think about which hospital you wish to book at and refer yourself on line to get the quickest appointment possible (to enable screening for problems).
choice   antenatal care

Most of our patients choose StHelier because of convenience, and that fact that postnatally, it will be local midwives who will come and visit you (whom you will have gotten to know antenatally).

Please please don't forget your Flu Jab soon & WhoopingCough jab at around 5months, because pregnant women are at high risk of Sepsis! serious infections!
