Nursing Clinics and Investigations / Tests

During the week, our nurses are available (by appointment) for general advice on health care. They are also able to organise immunisations (routine or holiday), give dietary advice, carry out cervical cytology (smear tests) and MOT’s (well man and well woman checks). Our nurses also undertake the screening services for “over 80s” in the community. Between them they also run Asthma, COPD, Diabetic and warfarin Clinics.

We now have a phlebotomy clinic. The appointments for this can be booked up to 5 days in advance.

Patients between the ages of 16-75 who have not seen a GP within the previous 3 years are welcome to arrange an appointment for a health check.

Patients over 75 who have not been seen within the last year can also arrange an appointment for a health check.

If you are aged between 40 -74 we offer NHS health checks. These check are to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and kidney disease. The check takes about 15 – 20 minutes.

Ask at the reception desk if you need further information about these services.
