Long Term Health Conditions
Asthma & Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
This clinic is run by our specialist respiratory nurses who are qualified to perform diagnostic spirometry. They aim to see all patients with asthma or COPD to monitor their treatment, inhaler techniques and help with understanding of the control of lung problems.
All patients with diabetes are invited to attend our Diabetic Clinic run by our specialist nurses who monitor the condition and advise on medication, diet, blood sugar control and preventing long term complications.
Heart Disease / High Blood Pressure
Our nurses offer clinics for the monitoring of high blood pressure and cholesterol. We have blood pressure monitors available for home monitoring. There is also a blood pressure monitor in the waiting room. You may use the blood pressure monitor prior to seeing the doctor or nurse and take the slip into your appointment with you.
Learning Disability Health Checks
We provide an annual health check for those with learning disabilities, either in surgery or at the patient's home.
NHS Health Checks
NHS Health Checks are offered to people aged between 40 and 74 once every 5 years. 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. Following the check, you will receive free personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy.
