Foreign Travel Service
The practice provides a limited medical foreign travel service, including advice, equipment and some vaccinations. If you are travelling abroad, please ask at reception for a questionnaire to submit to the practice nurse in advance of your appointment, or check out the Foreign Travel link on this website. Please allow plenty of time, before you travel, for the necessary treatment, as it may not be possible at short notice to develop the protection or immunity you’ll need.
Health Checks For The Over 40s
The practice will be inviting in all patients who are between the ages of 40 and 74 for a health check. This will involve taking blood pressure readings, weight and height (BMI), a blood test to check your cholesterol level, and carrying out a cardio-vascular risk assessment. Lifestyle advice will be given to help you to stay healthy for longer, and to prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and kidney disease. It is expected to take up to five years to complete the first cycle, so please be patient while awaiting your turn. You will then be invited back every five years to monitor your health until you reach the age of 74.
