Stroke/TIA

Our Doctors regularly monitor patients and alter their treatments to suit needs, therefore, helping to reduce the number of attacks and hospital admissions. If you have suffered with a Stroke / TIA  you will be automatically called to a clinic.

Diabetic Clinic

The majority of our diabetic patients are cared for and monitored at the surgery, with routine checks with our practice nurse. New diabetics are carefully supported with sessions on a one-to-one basis.

Asthma & Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Our practice nurses regularly monitor patients and alter their treatments to suit individual needs, therefore, helping to reduce the number of attacks and hospital admissions.  Emergency facilities are held within the buildings to deal with asthma situations promptly, rather than referring to hospital (unless absolutely necessary).

Blood Pressure

If you have blood pressure problems, we have a machine in the reception area, so you can monitor your levels and update us with your readings.

Cervical Smears

These are carried out by the practice nurse.  There is a recall system in operation, however, if you are not called when you think appropriate, please contact the surgery
