From time to time the practice will focus on the treatment of certain disease areas, such as Hypothyroidism, Stroke, Cancer, Chronic Kidney Disease, Dementia and Mental Health. If you are called to a clinic it is because you have been identified as needing a review. These clinics have been set up to meet quality standards in disease management and it is important that you acknowledge any contact regarding attendance.
The practice also seeks to promote a healthy lifestyle. Help and advice are available within the practice on issues such as weight management and giving up smoking. Where appropriate we are also able to make use of services offered by outside agencies. Please contact reception if you would like an appointment with one of the practice nurses to discuss the services available.
