Vaccinations help to protect us throughout our life.
Public Health feels that it is important to continue to vaccinate children during the pandemic. This will help with stopping the spread of infectious diseases. If the child, parent or other member of the family has a new cough, fever or change in taste or smell please DO NOT attend the surgery and follow the NHS guidance regarding self isolation. If everyone is well, please can we minimise who attends with the child, ideally just one parent and no other children. We would also encourage you not to bring prams, pushchairs or car seats into the practice.
Long Term Conditions Clinic
The Long Term Conditions clinic usually takes place each afternoon, between 13:30 and 16:00. If you have a long term condition (asthma or other respiratory condition, diabetes, heart disease or have had a stroke or mini-stroke) you will be invited once a year for an annual check with a specialist nurse. The check takes approximately 20 minutes.
If a blood test is required, this will be required around 2 weeks before the clinic appointment for patients with heart disease, diabetes or having had a stroke. You will be advised of this when you ring to book for the clinic. Please note you will be given the results of this blood test in the clinic, there is no need to telephone for them.
Please be aware that we are required by the government to call you three times each year if you do not respond to our letters. If you do not want to be called or you have had a letter and don't want to come to clinic you can let one of our practice staff know and you will not be invited again during that year.
NHS Health Checks
We are offering patients aged between 40 and 74 years a cardiovascular health check as long as you haven’t already *got high blood pressure, Diabetes, Kidney Disease, Heart Disease, had a Stroke or are taking a Statin medication. This involves coming in for a cholesterol test followed a week or so later by a 20 minute appointment with one of our Health Care Assistants to take your weight, height, blood pressure and to answer some lifestyle questions. They will then assess your risk of a developing Heart Disease, Type 2 Diabetes, Kidney Disease or having a Stroke. If you are at a high risk they will advise you to see the GP who can discuss lifestyle changes and medication options with you. If you would like one of these please ring reception and ask for an NHS Health Check.
