NHS Health Checks
NHS Health Checks are offered to patients in the age grouped 40yrs- 74yrs without a pre-existing condition. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing something dangerous like high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes. Your NHS Health Check can spot early signs and help prevent these happening to you, which means you'll be more likely to enjoy life for longer. This check includes your circulatory and vascular health and what your risk of getting a disabling vascular disease is.
The Dietician attends the Practice once a month. She works as part of a multi-disciplinary team and supports the work of other health care professionals. She provides health advice and promotes healthy eating and advises about special diets and nutrition, i.e. for obese and diabetic patients.
Our practice has a facility to perform minor surgeries i.e removal of moles, cysts, skin lesions, aspiration of fluids from the joints, drainage of abscess and steroid injections in the joints.
ECG services are available in-house only at the instructions of the doctor.
Child Health & Immunisation
Regular development & health checks for the under five’s are carried out by the doctor and the health visitor. The appointment for routine development check is sent out to you via the computerised recall system by CCG. The immunisation appointments are sent in the same way. It is important that all children are fully immunised.
If your child is under 5 years old and is travelling abroad, please ensure they are up to date with all their immunisations.
For more details contact the reception staff for an appointment with the Practice Nurse.
Our Practice runs flu sessions from the third week of September. Pneumovax vaccines are available throughout the year. Please contact our receptionist staff for further details.
