Noticeboard

We are still here for all our patients - we are not closed. All appointments are via telephone triage initially and any that need a follow-up appointment will be either by video link or in person but only if no Covid-19 symptoms are present. If you feel your condition needs a review, please contact us

The Covid-19 link on the right of this page contains some very useful information - please review this list before contacting the Practice with a Covid-19 query.

Face mask/scarf - All patients who are invited in for a face to face consultation are asked to wear a face covering. This can be a face mask or homemade scarf. This is for the protection of the staff who will wear a mask for the protection of you.

RESPIRATORY REVIEWS

Invites are issued once a year to all patients with Asthma using regular inhalers and those with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

It is important to attend your annual review even when you are feeling well so we can assess your lung condition and how well your medication is helping you at your baseline, not just when you are unwell. You may not need to attend the surgery for this review as the Nurse might be able to discuss your health over the telephone or over a Near Me video consultation.

Your check up may include:

Inhaler technique review

Heath advice regarding diet, weight and smoking

We strongly encourage you to complete an Asthma Risk Check before your Asthma review. You can discuss your results with the Respiratory Nurse at your review.
