We are actively engaged in health education and disease prevention and are always happy to discuss this with you. In particular, advice on smoking, diet, weight, exercise, travel and immunisations, screening checks such as blood pressure and cholesterol checks, well person checks and cervical smears are available. We like to see all of our new patients within 3 months of registering, and then at least every 3 years after that until the age of 75 when annual checks are offered.
Appointments can be made directly with the practice nurses for general health counselling and lifestyle advice, dietary advice, smoke stop, dressings, removal of sutures, ear syringing, immunisations and travel advice.
Chronic Disease Management – i.e. Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Coronary Heart Disease, Stroke monitoring and Diabetes are also managed by our specialist trained nurses, alongside the doctors.
