All our diabetic patients are encouraged to attend our Diabetes Clinic annually to help improve their control and reduce the risks of any complications associated with diabetes. You should be asked to attend a review with nurse Emily or nurse Mandi or you can phone and ask for an appointment earlier if you are having problems.
Asthma/ Breathing Problems/ Smoking Cessation
Emily is our specialist respiratory nurse and her aim is to provide the best symptom control and education for our respiratory patients.
Menopause / Osteoporosis Prevention
Women are encouraged to seek advice and information on menopausal and associated problems. First appointment is with the doctor. Our aim is to improve quality of life and general health for women.
We offer a full Travel and Immunisation Service (excluding Yellow Fever). Our nurses have up-to-date information for travellers and are able to advice on the relevant vaccines and anti-malarials that you may require depending on your destination. There is a charge for some of these vaccines and anti-malarials.
More information is available on the above tab.
These are available from the practice nurse. Current NHS practice is to offer smears three yearly between the ages of 25 (or as soon as family planning is required) to 34 years, and five yearly from 35 to 64 years. Individual needs may vary and you may be offered a cervical smear test more frequently if the doctor thinks it is appropriate.
This confidential service is provided mainly by our nurse who is trained in the following types of contraception:
- Contraceptive pill
- Cap fitting
- Coil checks
Coil fitting is also available, for anybody interested in this method. An appointment is required with Dr Cox to discuss this further.
