NHS Health Checks
Patients aged 40 - 74 years who are not currently on a disease register can attend for a five-yearly NHS Health Check.
The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It's designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.
How do I get an NHS Health Check?
If you're in the 40-74 age group without a pre-existing condition, you can expect to receive a letter or phone call from us inviting you to attend for a Health Check.
If you would like more information you can click here to see the information provided on the NHS Choices website.
If you intend to go abroad on holiday or business, you may need the protection of travel vaccinations.The practice nurse can advise you about which travel vaccinations you will need. We can provide any of the following:
Innoculations against polio, tetanus, typhoid, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, cholera and malaria prevention.
There is a charge for some of these innoculations. Please see the practice nurse by appointment, preferably two months before departure.
You will need to have a tetanus booster every 10 years and a polio booster if you are visiting a part of the world where the risk is high. We also offer a flu vaccine from September every year, especially for the over 65s and those considered to be in an 'at risk' group. Please see the nurse.
High blood pressure is a condition which if untreated can lead to damage of the eyes and kidneys and increase the incidence of heart disease. If you suffer from raised blood pressure, the doctor may ask you to attend the practice nurse for advice and monitoring of the problem. Remember that you are welcome to use the 'DIY' BP monitor in the reception area.
Asthma affects at least two people in fifty. By understanding the condition and how to treat it, you can help yourself and your doctor keep your asthma under control. Reviews (by appointment) are intended to:
- Educate patients about their asthma/COPD.
- Monitor them and where possible improve their control and therefore their lifestyles.
- Carry out lung function tests.
Clinics are run every Thursday afternoon, by a doctor and a practice nurse.
These are held weekly on a Thursday and are run by the practice nurse (with doctor support if necessary). Most of our diabetic patients are now looked after at these clinics, although some with particular problems will still go to hospital.
