Over 65's health
"Stop Smoking" Advice
The practice provides access to a smoking cessation service.
Diabetes, Asthma, Heart Disease and High Blood Pressure
If you suffer from any of these conditions we like to monitor your health at regular intervals. It also gives us an opportunity to suggest changes in treatment. You are invited to make an appointment with one of our Doctors
or our practice nurses
who have specialist training in these areas.
This is offered every year from mid-September to government specified groups including those over 65 and those at most risk, including diabetics, asthmatics and patients who have heart disease or kidney disease. Notices are displayed in the waiting room.
Please make an appointment for assessment with Dr Mark Free, who will suggest the appropriate treatment.
Non NHS Services
Some services are not covered by the NHS. The practice has a policy of charging for such services which include medical examinations, completion of forms for private insurance and private certificates. A tariff is displayed in the waiting room. Please allow 8 working days. Completed documents will be left in Reception for collection.
We generally need to be advised six weeks before you travel, so that we can put together individual health travel plans for you, which may include immunisations.
A Travel Form needs to be completed and returned to the surgery before your appointment with the Practice Nurse - this helps us to tailor your vaccinations and advice to your destination and nature of travel.
Most travel injections must be given at least two weeks before you travel for them to become effective.
Thank you for your co-operation.
