Clinics & Services
Although we do not have dedicated clinics routinely as patients may suffer from multiple problems and should be treated according to need and avoid being seen more often than required. But we set up special clinic when necessary.
The practice nurses are available between 08:30 - 12.30 and 13.30 - 17:00,except Wednesday afternoons when the surgery is closed. Their work involves carrying out regular monitoring on patients with high blood pressure, annual review and advising on longer term conditions such as Diabetes,COPD, Asthma and heart disease.Other duties include providing dressings, attending to minor injuries, assist in the baby clinic, seeing patients with minor illnesses such as water infection, leg ulcers, travel immunisations, ear syringing, flu jabs, smoking cessation and weight loss programme .In addition, they also provide children immunisation, contraception advice, cervical smear and the health screening service.
We also provide NHS Health Checks, aimed at people aged 40-74 who do not regularly visit the surgery. We offer you the opportunity to check your blood pressure, BMI and cholesterol, and we aim to give you advice on how to improve your health, through small changes in your lifestyles suited to your needs. For more information and to receive a blood form please contact the surgery. You will then be able to have a blood test which will be followed up by an appointment with one of our nurses.
There is a team of five district nurses, led by Outer North East Community Services that serve housebound patients for their long-term diseases and immediate requirements following discharge from hospital.
