We strongly support the trend towards health education and screening. If you have not attended surgery in the last three years, we would be happy to see you to perform a brief health check and give you any help and advice that you require, especially with respect to diet, exercise and other aspects of healthy living.
It is the practice policy to see all patients over the age of 75 at least once a year, in order to perform a brief health check. This can be done at the surgery by your doctor or a practice nurse or, if applicable, at your home by the district nurse.
We run several specialist clinics, such as anticoagulant monitoring, asthma, coronary heart disease and diabetes. Please check with reception for clinic times.
