All new patients are offered check up on joining the practice. This service is also offered to all patients between 15 and 74 years who have not been seen by the doctor in the past three years.
NHS Health check:
The NHS Health Check programme aims to help prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and certain types of dementia. Everyone between the ages of 40 to 74 yrs, who has not already been diagnosed with one of these conditions or have certain risk factors, will be invited (once every five years) to have a check to assess their risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes and will be given support and advice to help them reduce or manage that risk.
Health assessment for people aged 75 years and older
A health assessment of an older person is an in-depth assessment of a patient aged 75 years and over. It provides a structured way of identifying health issues and conditions that are potentially preventable or amenable to interventions in order to improve health and/or quality of life.
We offer an annual check up to patients over the ageof 75 years in their homes if they are unable to attend the surgery.
