Well Person Clinic
Our nurses run a clinic designed for men and women to assess and discuss issues around healthy living. This clinic is aimed at patients aged 16 - 74 years and appointment times are available mornings and evenings. You do not need to see your doctor before booking. They run Monday morning and afternoon and Wednesday morning with one of our practice nurses by special appointment.
We have a nurse-run clinic for asthmatic patients which has an educational input. This clinic has been set up to ensure that our patients' asthma is as well controlled as possible. Appointments are available mornings and evenings. You do not need to see your doctor before booking.
Most of the monitoring of diabetic care takes place in the practice. As well as attending when there are problems, the practice offers routine diabetic reviews. Patients are requested to be seen at least annually by the practice nurse at a special appointment. People with troublesome diabetes might also need to see the specialist at the hospital.
Coronary Heart Disease Clinics
For patients who have had heart attacks or suffer angina we offer a nurse-led review service to make sure problems are treated as well as possible. Patients suffering with these conditions are requested to book an appointment annually but can be seen more frequently if there are more problems.
Postnatal/New Baby Checks
These are arranged for eight weeks after delivery with your own doctor and the practice nurse.
Contraceptive advice is available during normal surgery time.
An influenza vaccination is particularly recommended for patients with heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes and residents of nursing and rest homes. Anyone aged 65 or over is recommended to have this vaccination. Please contact the reception staff in October for details of the vaccination dates and to make an appointment. If you are unable to attend the surgery, a home visit will be arranged to undertake this facility.
