Get cancer symptoms checked, just speak to your GP

While the number of urgent cancer referrals is back up to 85% of pre-COVID levels, there are some people who may have worrying symptoms who are still not contacting their GP.

  • From the start of the pandemic to the end of August, more than 870,000 people were urgently referred and over 90% of them were subsequently seen by a specialist within two weeks. Cancer treatment levels were maintained at 85% of 2019 levels during the height of the pandemic– showing that the NHS is there for people when they need it.
    • If you’ve had unexplained blood that doesn’t come from an obvious injury (such as blood in your poo or pee), an unexplained lump, weight loss which feels significant to you or an unexplained pain that lasts three weeks or more, it could be a sign of cancer.
    • It’s probably nothing serious, but finding cancer early makes it more treatable, so just speak to your GP.
    • Your NHS is here to see you, safely


If you need physiotherapy a number of different options are available to you.

You can see a physiotherapist: 

  • by getting a referral from a doctor
  • by contacting a physiotherapist directly
  • at your GP surgery
  • privately

Physiotherapy can also sometimes be accessed through occupational health services, charities, patient groups and the voluntary sector.

Physiotherapy on the NHS

Physiotherapy is available free of charge on the NHS throughout the UK.

Depending on where you live, you may be able to self-refer or you may need to visit your GP or consultant first. After discussing your symptoms with your doctor, they may then refer you to a physiotherapist.

You can search for physiotherapy services near you to find out where you may be referred to.

Cervical screening

Cervical screening is safe and essential. 99% of cervical cancers are preventable and cervical screening picks up very early changes, when it is easier to treat. 
The Project Surgery is open for cervical screening and have introduced safety measures to protect patients and staff from Covid-19, including: 
  • social distancing
  • additional PPE, such as masks, gloves and aprons, which will be changed between patients.
  • all patients have to wear a face covering (unless exempt)
  • any patient who has Covid-19 symptoms is asked not to attend their appointment and to contact their GP to rearrange 

The Project Surgery recommends that all women take advantage of the cervical smear test in line with national recommendations: 

  • First invitation at the age of 25 years
  • Every three years until you reach the age of 49
  • Every five years thereafter until the age of 65
  • At other times as recommended by the Doctor

You will receive a reminder when your smear test is due once you have had your first smear.
The above recommendations are for “routine” smears only. If you are experiencing any problems and feel you require a test earlier please speak to your GP.

For more information about smear tests, there is a short video to explain the facts, as well as and Your Guide to Cervical screening. 

Full vaccinations

The practice policy is to offer the influenza vaccination to all patients over the age of 65 years and those patients suffering from certain conditions. 

If you fall into this category we will contact you by letter or phone each year around the end of September to the beginning of October with an invitation to attend.

Childhood Vaccinations

We offer a full immunisation service for children. If your child has missed a vaccination, please give us a ring to book an appointment with the practice nurse.

Travel advice and immunisations

Our local pharmacies offer travel vaccinations. Some vaccinations will require boosters before you travel, so please always consult the pharmacist at the earliest opportunity after you have planned your  journey. We recommend that you book your appointment at least four weeks before you travel.
