Health Promotion & Advice
Our Practice Nurse will be happy to advise you on diet, prevention of heart disease, and stopping smoking. For advice on foreign travel precautions she should ideally see you 4 weeks before you travel to ensure you have the correct vaccinations. The surgery is a registered Yellow Fever Centre.
The nurse also runs a well women clinic by appointment for advice on aspects of women’s health including cervical smear tests, contraception, HRT and breast examination.
The nurse and doctor also provide advice and treatment for people with sexual health problems, including sexually transmitted infections. Patients over 75 are entitled to an annual health check.
Please make an appointment with the Practice Nurse for this, or ask for a home visit if needed.
