Many minor procedures are carried out at Canterbury Medical Clinic.
- Biopsy of skin lesion to determine their nature.
- Biopsy of complex, difficult or unusual rashes to determine their nature.
- Excision of skin cancers.
- Cryotherapy ( freezing ) of benign skin lesions of a large variety of sorts which are suitable for this type of removal.
- Electrocardiography (ECG) for diagnosis and maintenance of patients with heart disease, and for those who do not have heart disease but need a diagnosis, usually for something minor, like an irregular pulse.
- Spirometry for diagnosis and maintenance of all lung conditions, including chronic airways disease and asthma.
- Sensitivity testing for diagnosis of allergic disease. This is useful even if the patients do not proceed to a full desensitisation course, as knowing what causes most allergic symptoms can sometimes be avoided.
- Pap smears are no longer performed from November 2017. Cervical screening test (CST) is the new test. These are performed in the same manner and are conducted routinely by all GP’s at Canterbury Medical Clinic. These are five yearly tests if normal.
