Clinics & Services

Diabetes

There has been a regular diabetic clinic at the Rookery Medical Centre for over 25 years. More than 90% of the 664 patients with diabetes currently registered with the practice have all, or most, of their care in the practice clinic. We maintain close links with the hospital specialist services, and are active in teaching and research. We hope that you will be able and willing to help us in our research activities, especially now that we are formally linked with the University of Cambridge.

Services that we offer:

  • Clinics: Dr Kumar - Thursday morning
  • Nurse led clinics with our specialist diabetes nurse, Nurse Hall, on Tuesdays and Fridays
  • Home visits for the housebound
  • Educational sessions for new and established patients
  • Dietician clinics

Respiratory

The Respiratory clinic runs on Monday and Thursday afternoons. It is for the routine monitoring of patients with asthma or COPD. We encourage patients with these conditions to be seen in the clinic at least once per year for routine review, unless you prefer to be seen by your own doctor. The clinic is run by our respiratory nurses who consult with Dr Saban (who supervises the clinic) if a specific issue requiring a doctor arises during the clinic. Appointments can be made by telephoning reception in the usual way, specifying you require a respiratory clinic appointment. 

New diagnosis of suspected respiratory conditions and acute (new sudden onset) problems such as exacerbations (flare ups) of COPD/asthma and chest infections etc should be dealt with in a doctor's appointment or through the duty team.

Minor Surgery

Minor surgery is carried out by Dr Saban and Dr Knowles who do minor surgery operating lists on Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon respectively.

Conditions dealt with include some sorts or mole and other troublesome skin lesions / cysts etc. If you would like to be considered for minor surgery please make a routine appointment with Dr Saban or Dr Knowles in a normal surgery. They will discuss the matter with you and put you on an operating list if appropriate.

We do not perform surgery for cosmetic reasons.
