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.
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
- Coil checks
Coil fitting is also available, for anybody interested in this method. An appointment is required with Dr Cox to discuss this further.
Pregnancy Options Centre
Pregnancy Options Centre Information
Pregnancy Options Centre provides free, non-directive counselling and support to women and men facing unplanned pregnancy or struggling following a pregnancy loss, including miscarriage, stillbirth, ectopic pregnancy, termination for medical reasons or an abortion.
Our sessions are client led and provide a safe environment for women, partners and family members to talk about their thoughts and emotions surrounding their circumstances. Our non-judgemental, specially trained volunteers give unplanned pregnancy clients the chance to talk to someone independent of their world and help them explore their three options: abortion, adoption or parenting. Longer term support looks at complex issues and emotions that clients can feel after a pregnancy loss or an abortion, such as grief, guilt, shame, depression, anger and acceptance.
Please contact us on 07843543792 or email@example.com to make an appointment.
