Examples of common skin conditions that we see include:
- eczema and dermatitis
- pigmented skin lesions (e.g. moles)
The aim of treatment is to control blood glucose and minimise the risk of complications. Having regular reviews at least annually with the doctor or nurse, of different aspects of health that can be affected by diabetes is essential to ensure that treatment is effective and adequate to minimise the risk of complications.
Type I are usually cared for both by GP and as an outpatient at the local hospital. In Nottingham the opportunity for students to transfer case from their home town to Queen’s Medical Centre (QMC) is available, where there is a very comprehensive service available, with a very experienced and supportive team of doctors and nurses.
As an outpatient registered at QMC there is a Drop in Clinic available at:
Open Monday – Friday 2 – 3:30 pm.
The team can be contacted Monday – Friday 9 am – 5 pm on 0115 97 09215 for advice on any aspects of your diabetes care.
More information about diabetes can be found on the NHS Choices website.
Our midwives have special training in the care of pregnant women and their newborn babies. They will provide antenatal care throughout pregnancy until around 10 days after the birth of your baby. Clinics are held each week at the Health Centre on Wednesdays.
If you think you may be pregnant you can self refer to the midwife team by calling 0115 8833100. Your appointment will take around an hour and will involve a detailed health review and an explanation of your antenatal care including what future appointments will be required.
For problem-free pregnancies most of your antenatal care will be provided at the Health Centre by the midwife and your GP.

As a team we perform a number of minor surgical procedures, examples of which are below. You may find it useful to make your first consultation with a doctor who performs a particular procedure ─ this can be discussed with the receptionist when booking.
We believe that performing these procedures in general practice gives our patients faster access to a more convenient service. However, there are limitations to procedures we are able/allowed to perform.
- Removal of moles by excision
- Removal of other skin lesions by cautery or shave excision
- Skin biopsies
- Implanon insertion (long term contraception)
- Insertion of contraceptive coils
Minor procedures for purely cosmetic reasons are not funded by the NHS and therefore we do not offer them.
