PSA Testing and Prostate Cancer
There has been a lot of coverage in the media recently about Prostate Cancer and we have seen an increase in patients asking for a PSA test. This test is not a screening test. If you are concerned about symptoms, then please book a routine appointment with your GP. Your GP might ask you to have a PSA test but this will be just part of a more complex process of investigation.

The practice now opens its Yateley Medical Centre from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. Evening appointments now available with GPs and nurses and can be booked by calling 01252 872333. These appointments are particularly aimed at patients whose work or study arrangements make it difficult for them to access care during our core opening hours.

Child Health Clinic In Yateley
A drop in clinic now operates in the Health education Room at Yateley Medical Centre on Thursdays - simply drop in anytime between 13:00 and 14:30 to have your baby weighed or for any other aspect of your child's health & development such as breastfeeding & weaning, behaviour difficulties such as not sleeping, fussy eating, potty training, temper tantrums & teething.
Every Patient has a "Usual GP"
Every patient is allocated a "Usual GP" - a GP who will get to know you and your family and who will work with you to plan your care needs. We encourage patients to book routine appointments with their own GP, although other doctors are happy to help if that person is not available.
If you are not sure who your usual GP is, please ask Reception.
Sometimes, we might write to patents asking them to change GP's, particularly if we have a new doctor at the practice. This is to ensure doctors' list sizes stay balanced and means that patients have good access to their doctor.
