Contraception

Full contraceptive advice is provided by the practice, we can fit I.U.D.’s and implants (by appointment only).

Flu Clinics

These are run annually, usually between September and December. The vaccine is not available to all patients and the criteria is determined by the department of health and can change from year to year.  If you are unsure whether you are eligible for a flu vaccine please contact a member of the reception team.

CVD / NHS Health Checks

We invite patients between 40 and 74 (who are not on any other long term condition register) to attend for an appointment with the Healthcare practitioner to check blood pressure, weight and for advice about diet, smoking and whatever may be of concern. Basic bloods will also be taken to calculate a risk score.  Patients with a risk score of over 20% will then be added to a recall system to be invited in annually. (we have a limit of 5% of patients in this group that we can invite per quarter.

Long Term Conditions

All patients with long term conditions such as, Asthma, Diabetes, Epilepsy, Heart conditions, Hypertension, Learning Disabilities are invited annually to see the relevant clinician to review current well being and medications

New Patient Check

We expect all our new patients to make an appointment to see our Healthcare Assistant.  This is an ideal opportunity for us to get some background health information about yourself prior to us receiving your records from your previous doctor.

Smoking Cessation

Our advisor offers a one-to-one appointment. More than one in five deaths in the UK are related to smoking, including deaths from lung disease, heart disease and stroke. Stopping smoking reduces these risks.
