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.

CARDIOVASCULAR CLINIC REVIEWS

Invites are issued once a year to all patients diagnosed with one or more of the following conditions:- Diabetes, Heart Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, Stroke, Hypertension, Peripheral Arterial Disease.

If you have more than one of the above conditions, you will only be called in once and your combination of conditions will be reviewed at the same time.

It is important to attend your annual review even when you are feeling well so we can monitor your condition, reduce your risk of complications and to live as full and healthy a life as possible.

The first appointment will be with our phlebotomists for blood, blood pressure and urine tests.  Please bring a mid-stream urine sample with you (white topped bottles can be obtained from the surgery)
