We are offering health checks to all patients aged 40-74 who are not currently seen in the Practice on a regular basis. You may receive a letter asking you to attend for a health check with a doctor and/or have some blood tests done.
WHY? Medical advances mean that we are much better now at managing diseases, such as heart attacks and strokes, when they happen, but ideally we would like to try to prevent them happening in the first place. By reviewing your blood tests, blood pressure, weight and whether or not you smoke, we can help you to reduce some of your risk factors.
WHAT NEXT? If you have recieved a letter then please call the surgery for an appointment for fasting blood tests and then an appointment about a week later with a Nurse for the review. If you have not received a letter but would like a health check (and are aged 40-74) then you can still make these appointments at the surgery.
ANY QUESTIONS? Our doctors or nurses will be only too happy to answer any questions.
