Clinics and Services
The practice operates a number of clinics - including those for patients with asthma, diabetes and heart problems. We also run immunisation clinics, health checks for new patients, travel health clinics and seasonal campaigns to combat influenza and help minimise other health risks.
Through correct diagnosis, we recognise asthma and aim to abolish the symptoms. By careful treatment, the objective is to maintain the best possible long-term airway function and reduce the risk of severe attacks. In children, we are looking to achieve normal growth. We encourage patients to use self-management plans.
Patients with asthma will be able to recognise their symptoms, know the distinction between preventers and relievers and will understand when to call for help with symptoms that are getting worse. Importantly, we will demonstrate the correct use of any chosen inhaler device.
Patients on our asthma register will be part of our call and recall system and you will be looked after by our team of practice nurses and doctors. By carefully managing your condition, we will be able to reduce risks, improve quality of life and minimise any absences from school or work.
Please ask at reception for further details.
Patients with any form of Ischaemic heart disease such as high blood pressure, heart attack, peripheral vascular disease or who have undergone coronary surgery are placed on our call and recall register for regular monitoring.
We monitor health through practice nurse clinics and by GP oversight. Our aim is to provide patients with the best possible advice and treatment in order to maximise quality of life and help prevent future problems.
As part of our work, we monitor cholesterol levels, conduct urine and blood tests, review medication and provide lifestyle advice.
