It is important for all patients with ASTHMA, COPD, or CHD to have a regular assessment. Our specialist nurses carry these out in normal clinic time at both surgeries. Appointments can be made via telephone.
All diabetic patients should have regular checks to maintain good health and prevent complications of diabetes. We have 2 nurses who specialise in diabetes and can see you in normal surgery. We recommend you have an annual review and to be seen in between as required.
We suggest a cervical smear is carried out every 3-5 years when appropriate. A specialist nurse usually carries these out in ordinary surgery times. The screening service is for all women aged between 25 and 64 years old.
A doctor can do certain minor surgery procedures at the surgery. Please ask any doctor/nurse about theses procedures.
