CHANGES TO YOUR USUAL DOCTOR:  During the merger process of the last few months we have had to make a number of changes to the doctors' team.  This means we have had to move 10% of our patients to new usual doctors.  We are sending out text messages, emails and some letters to let you know if this applies to you.  If you have been moved, we are really sorry as we know patients and doctors often develop close relationships, and it can be frustrating having to get to know and to trust someone again.  However, please be patient and give it a go.  The new doctors we have are caring, conscientious and highly competent.

NHS Health Checks

NHS Health Checks are now being offered to people aged between 40 and 74 once every five years.

The check is to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, diabetes or dementia. If there are any warning signs, then together we can do something about it.

By taking early action, you can improve your health and prevent the onset of these conditions. There is good evidence for this.

The Health Check involves a 15 minute appointment with our practice nurse or healthcare assistant. She will:

•  Use straightforward questions and measurements such as age, family history, height, weight and blood pressure, to work out what risk factors you might have. She will then provide free personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy.

•  Take a blood test for blood sugar and cholesterol levels

Once your blood results are back, we will write to you with an overall assessment of your risk, including advice as to whether any further action is required

 

If you would like to book this, please contact our receptionists and advise that you would like an NHS Health Check.

 

Please take a look at the leaflet below for more information about the NHS Health Check and how it could benefit you.
