Heart Checks and Diabetic Checks

Patients are contacted and invited to attend consultations with our practice nurse to monitor both their condition and medication.
The practice nurse can provide advice and vaccinations appropriate for your travel abroad. We recommend that you see her at least a month before you travel to ensure completion of the full course of recommended vaccines. Each traveller needs their own individual appointment. Please ensure that you mention you require travel service when booking your appointment as a double appointment needs to be booked.
You will also be advised as to the cost of vaccinations as some of these are not covered under NHS services.
Our practice nurse will advise you about any immunisations you should have to keep up to date.
We encourage patients with chronic medical conditions or over sixty-five years old to have a flu vaccination annually. These clinics are held between September and February.
Our practice nurse offers a wide range of advice and support to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle e.g. stopping smoking, exercise, menopause and dietary advice.
