If you are a Stockport Resident or registered with a Stockport GP you can make use of the Treatment Room Service. Our service provides treatment and advice in the clinic or health centre for you or any member of your family.
Wound care, removal of stitches or clips following surgery or emergency treatment at the hospital, management of urinary catheters and ear care are offered in the treatment room.
You will have an individual assessment by the nurse who will then plan your care with you. This may include teaching you how to manage your care yourself.
The nurse will assess your wounds, treat them appropriately and provide you with the necessary dressings. The nurse will refer you to other services when needed. In the case of lower leg injuries which are slow to heal this will involve referral to the leg ulcer service.
Stockport does not offer routine ear irrigation for the removal of ear wax. If ear wax is causing you to have hearing loss you should use ear drops to soften the wax for three weeks. Your pharmacist will recommend suitable drops. You can also pick up the leaflet 'Caring For Your Ears' from the GP surgery or local clinic.
If hearing is still affected after three weeks of using drops you may need to have your ears irrigated by a treatment room nurse. The nurse will make an assessment and advise you of the best course of action.
We are unable to give emergency first aid if you have experienced an animal bite, have fallen and injured yourself, have splinters or other foreign bodies which need removing.
Please arrive in good time for your appointment and be sure to inform us if you find that you can't attend.
