NAMED GP

Due to NHS England's guidelines all patients have been allocated a named GP. At this practice your named GP would be the GP that you were registered with when  you first joined the practice. This does not prevent you making an appointment or seeing any doctor of your choosing as you would normally do.

ORGAN DONATION

More than 10.000 people in the UK currently need an organ transplant.  Of these, 3 a day will die waiting as there are not enough organs available.

Only 31% of us have joined the organ donor register, please help save lives by registering now.

Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and some forms of dementia.

These conditions can often be prevented – even if you have a family history of them.

 

We are now able to offer free NHS health checks to assess the risk of developing heart disease, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and stroke. 

We will be inviting patients between the ages of 40 and 74 who haven’t been diagnosed with any of the above conditions, every 5 years.

 

What happens at the check?

You will be asked some simple questions regarding your family history and take measurements such as height, weight and blood pressure.  You will also have a finger prick test to check your cholesterol level.

Your health professional will explain your results to you and you will be given personalised advice on how to reduce your risk and stay healthy.

You will be directed to your GP for further advice and treatment if necessary.

 

If you would like a health check but haven't had an invite please speak to one of our receptionists.
