Medical Review Clinics
If you have a chronic or long term condition such as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, asthma or chronic obstructive airways disease it is important that you are seen regularly to help you manage your health and check your medication.
To help you do this we will invite you to a Medical Review Clinic with one of the Practice Nursing Team. You may have to have a separate appointment for a blood test prior to seeing the Practice Nurse so your results can be reviewed at your Practice Nurse appointment.
If you have more than one illness we will try to arrange for you to be seen in one appointment however some patients may need seen more frequently than once a year. Your Practice Nurse will confirm how frequently you need to attend.
If you are invited to attend the practice for an appointment it is important that you are seen to ensure the care you receive is safe and appropriate for your needs.
Minor Illness Clinic
The Minor Illness nurse will see patients with the following problems and if necessary will arrange for you to be reviewed by a doctor or other member of the practice team:
Screening Programs - Outside of GP Surgeries
Screening is a way of identifying apparently healthy people who may have an increased risk of a particular condition. The NHS offers a range of screening tests to different sections of the population. You can read more about NHS Screening Programmes here.
The aim is to offer screening to the people who are most likely to benefit from it. For example, some screening tests are only offered to newborn babies, while others such as breast screening and abdominal aortic aneurysm screening are only offered to older people.
If you are eligible for a screening program, you will receive an invitation from the hospital and we will receive notification of your invitation and your results.
For transgender man and woman, eligibility is outlined in this leaflet.
