Clinics & Services
All diabetics who are not regularly monitored at the hospital will be invited to attend this clinic on a regular basis. Progress is carefully monitored to reduce the long term risks associated with diabetes, such as heart disease and deteriorating eyesight.
Asthma & Spirometry
We have clinicians at each surgery who have an interest in Asthma and COPD (smoker's asthma). Regular monitoring of asthmatics is recommended and you are advised to make an appointment with one of these clinicians where possible. Additionally, we have a nurse who can perform an asthma review for you.
We have Nurses and Health Care Assistants who can check your blood pressure in a 5 minute appointment. Additionally we have a blood pressure machine in our downstairs waiting area for patients to use themselves. A member of our reception team will be happy to assist. It is important that our patients whose blood pressure is poorly controlled have regular checks, providing comprehensive screening, advice and relevant medication.
