Clinics & Services
We hold clinics at the Health Centre for the care of some groups of patients. Repeat medication is reviewed in some of the clinics.

Asthma/COPD Clinic - our specially trained nurse holds clinics for adults and children by appointment only.
Child Health Clinic - Thursday 13:30 to 15:00 weekly
This is run by the health visitors and includes immunisations, baby weight checks and advice about childcare. Appointments are not necessary. It is important not to bring a child who is ill to clinic – an appointment to see a doctor should be made instead. Appointments will automatically be given for new babies to attend at 6 weeks after birth and other children when immunisations or health check are due.
Diabetic Clinic - Monday afternoons
This is run by the practice nurses. If you are a diabetic you will automatically be offered an appointment to attend annually, unless you are already being seen at the hospital clinic.
Healthy Heart Clinic - this clinic is run by the practice nurses for the care of patients with heart disease, high blood pressure, raised blood fats and those at risk of heart disease, by appointment only.
Influenza (Flu) Vaccination - this is recommended for all patients aged over 65 years and for patients of all ages with heart, lung or kidney disease. Patients who are carers are also advised to have a flu vaccination. The flu vaccinations are usually available from October onwards each year.
