Asthma, Diabetic and Heart Disease Clinics
We have specially trained practice nurses who regularly review all asthmatic, diabetic and heart disease patients. Telephone 01244 680169.
NHS Health Checks
All patients aged 40-74 who have not attended the surgery within three years are welcome to attend for a free NHS health check with a Health Care Assistant. Patients will be called for these by letter, but as we have many patients who are eligible, these letters are sent out on a staggered basis, however if you have not had a letter and would like to book, you are welcome at any time.
Our Practice Nurses and Doctors provide contraceptive services. This ranges from simple pill checks with our Nurse, to Coil or Implant fittings,removals and replacements. If you require emergency contraception and feel uncomfortable explaining this to our receptionist please ask for Zoe when ringing 01244 680169.
The Practice Nurses may be consulted for the following: COPD, Chronic heart disease, child health surveillance, smears, dressings, removal of stitches, ear syringing, baby immunisations and health promotion clinics. Flu injections are available during the winter months, particularly for people who are asthmatic or diabetic, or have chest or heart problems, or who are aged over 65 years. Annual health checks are also offered to all patients aged over 75 years. Please telephone 680169 if you wish to make an appointment to see a Practice Nurse.
Minor Surgery Services
Minor Surgery clinics are fitted in to the Dr. Thompsons or Dr. O’Dells clinics on days where we have plenty of capacity with other GP's. If you think you may need minor surgery please ask to see Dr. Thompson or Dr. O’Dell to review if you are suitable for this clinic you can then be placed on the Minor Surgery waiting list.
