Health Conditions

To ensure that we provide the best possible care for patients with long term conditions the practice aims to review patients at least every 12 months. This will be carried out at the "One Stop" clinic where we will check and monitor all conditions and medications at the same time so that you do not have to attend the surgery on multiple occasions.

In these appointments, we might check that your medication is still appropriate for you, and still the best treatment available. We might also ask you questions about your lifestyle and give you advice about how to keep your condition under control. Our nursing team (including our health care assistants) are trained to offer you support and advice, and will talk to the GP about you to make sure appropriate plans are in place.

For patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) we may also offer you an interim review, if you have had an exacerbation of your condition, please click here for more information on this.

Spirometry is a simple test used to help diagnose and monitor certain lung conditions by measuring how much air you can breathe out in one forced breath.

It's carried out using a device called a spirometer, which is a small machine attached by a cable to a mouthpiece.

If you've been asked to attend for a spirometry test, please read our patient information leaflet.

health check

The NHS Health Check is a free check-up of your overall health. It is available for adults aged 40 to 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.
