Practice Services


It is helpful to know if you have a Carer (someone who takes on an unpaid caring role) or if you are a Carer for someone else. We have a page dedicated to Carers where you can also register with us as a carer so we can provide you with additional support.

Family Planning

Both doctors and nurses offer contraceptive services. Guidance on the best method of contraception for you is given and these include the pill, contraceptive injections/implants, caps and coils, patches or condoms. Emergency contraception is also part of the service.

Immunisations and Travel Health

All childhood or adolescent immunisations are offered along with influenza and pneumococcal for the appropriate patient groups.

For travel vaccinations please refer to our Travel Health and Immunisations section.

Minor Surgery

The practice has an air-conditioned operating suite and offers a range of minor surgical procedures for our own patients and for patients referred from other surgeries.

In house Vasectomy Service

The vasectomy service that we offer is not just for Carlton Group Practice patients but also for anyone who is referred to us by their own doctor. We are the main provider of this service in the Burton on Trent area.

The normal NHS route a 2 stop consultation and operation service.

The operation itself is simple, performed under a local anaesthetic and usually takes around half an hour. Vasectomies are performed by an experienced surgeon in our air-conditioned operating suite.

In house Other Operations

As well as the in-house vasectomy service, we are now available to perform carpal tunnel and trigger finger operations in our purpose designed operating suite.

This service is not only offered to our own patients but also patients from other surgeries in Staffordshire and parts of Derbyshire too. The normal NHS route is to be referred to us by your GP if he or she feels it appropriate, instead of them referring you to a hospital

The operation would be performed here under a local anaesthetic. If you would like further information, please contact our Practice Nurses who will be only too happy to help you.
