All new patients aged 17-74 years joining the practice should have a health check which is carried out by our practice nurse. This is a quick check which takes about 20 minutes and involves simple tests such as blood pressure and urine tests.
Asthma / Diabetic Clinics
We conduct regular clinics to monitor and guide our patients in the management of their conditions.
Looking after Diabetes during Ramadan
Please consult your Doctor or Diabetic Nurse for advice on how to manage your Diabetes. It is important to discuss any medication changes before you start fasting. If changes are not made, you may be at risk Hypoglycaemia or 'hypos' (where your blood glucose levels fall to less than 4.0mmol/l)
You could also have high blood glucose levels during this time which could lead to health problems in the short and long term
Over 75 Year Checks
An annual health check is offered to all patients over 75 years in order to monitor or detect diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, and also to assess eyesight and hearing.
Ante Natal / Post Natal Clinics
These clinics are held every Friday between 09:00am - 12.00pm and are attended by a Midwife.
It is most important that expectant mothers attend these clinics once a month in order to prevent complications and ensure a safe and happy delivery.
It is essential that all children receive all the immunisations recommended by the government to safeguard their health. The nurse and doctor run immunisation clinics.
It is just as important that adults are protected against diseases such as tetanus, polio and hepatitis B.
