You will be invited to attend the surgery for a Diabetic check up every year, usually in your Birthday month. This is a half an hour appointment with any of our practice nurses who will go through your management plan, and offer any subsequent follow ups.
Please remember to have your blood taken before your appointment, please see the 'Blood Test Clinics' tab above for more information. You do not need to fast for this.
If you have any queries or concerns regarding your diabetic control you can book an appointment at any time to discuss with one of our practice nurses.
The surgery offers ear syringing, ECGs, B12 injections, lifestyle checks, pessary changes and dressings.
Please inform the receptionist beforehand what the appointment is for so they can book you with the most suitable clinician for your treatment.
If you are booking for ear syringing please use olive oil drops for 10 days beforehand to soften the wax.
Travel Assessments need to be booked ASAP after you have booked your travel abroad, as some injections require a course. Please book a double appointment with the nurse for these.
ECGs can only be carried out on the advice of a doctor. If you feel you need an ECG please speak to the doctor first, then book your appointment with one of our practice nurses or Healthcare Support Worker.
If you require a pessary change please inform the receptionist before you book your appointment. These are double appointments carried out by a female doctor, namely Dr Catherine Stephenson or Dr Ashwini Nayak.
B12 injections and dressings are carried out by our practice nurses, usually on a single appointment. Note if the dressing is large then it would be wise to book a double appointment for this.
A smear test lasts 5 minutes...the impact of cervical cancer lasts a lifetime. Attend your smear test and reduce your risk.
Patients who still have periods need to book between 10-14 days after the start of your period (mid cycle).
We have three female nurses who will be happy to discuss any queries or concerns with you before your appointment.
