Diabetic Clinic

Dedicated clinics are run by Sister Tracy Slater, Sister Alison Rawlins and Sister Jac Hurfurd. 

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 Sister Jane Wolfindale with specialist training in asthma and COPD.

All immunisations for children are offered by the practice. The Community Child Health Services will advise you when an appointment is due and what immunisations are required. Please contact us to arrange a convenient appointment with one of our practice nurses.

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 make a 20 minute appointment via reception.

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.
