Our practice offers a range of health services including:
NHS Health Checks
All patients aged 40 – 70 years of age are eligible for a free NHS Health Check every 5 years. The check will include lifestyle advice and screening for possible signs of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes. If you are aged over 65 you will also be told the signs and symptoms of dementia to look out for.
The check takes between 20 – 30 minutes.
For patients with Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes we run a Diabetes Clinic where your diabetes control will be assessed and you will have the opportunity to discuss with the medical team any problems or questions you may have.
All women aged 25 – 64 are eligible for cervical screening every 3 – 5 years.
