The surgery provides a wide range of clinics:
We offer comprehensive care for patients with long term conditions – this includes Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Epilepsy, Hypertension, Heart, Kidney and Thyroid related conditions. We invite patients, in their birth month, for an annual monitoring appointment with a practice nurse.
Our practice nurses are able to assess and treat minor injuries. This can often avoid the need to visit hospital.
The practice undertakes minor operations to help avoid long waits for hospital treatment. Procedures include the removal of moles, cysts and skin tags. Please discuss this with a doctor.
