Diabetic Clinic

Dedicated clinics are run by our Diabetic Nurses.

New patients will need to make an initial appointment to see the doctor before being followed up in the clinic.

If these clinics are not suitable the nurse can book you into a time that is convenient.

 

Asthma and COPD clinic

Dedicated clinics are held by our Long Term Conidition Nurses with specialist training in asthma and COPD.

Ear Irrigation

Due to COVID-19, we will not be offering ear irrigation at any of our surgeries as this is considered to be an aerosol generating procedure.

Smoking Cessation

All patients who are smokers are encouraged to stop smoking. The practice nurses are trained to support patients who wish to stop. Please request an appointment via askmyGP.

We have a high number of patients not attending these appointments, which means those patients who want to stop smoking are finding it difficult to book an early appointment. We would be grateful if you could help us by cancelling any appointment you cannot make.

 

Health Checks 

You'll be invited for an NHS Health Check every five years if you are between 40 and 74 years old, as long as you don't have an existing vascular condition. We will write to you, inviting you to make an appointment for this check.

The check is to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes. If there are any warning signs, then together we can do something about it.

By taking early action, you can improve your health and prevent the onset of these conditions; there is good evidence of this.

The check is based on straightforward questions and measurements such as age, sex, family history, height, weight, and blood pressure. There will also be a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol and glucose levels.

Following the check you will receive free personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy. 

 

Weight Advice

Weight advice, focusing on healthy living and weight management. Nurses can refer you to specialist organisations for help.
