Clinics & Services
Better Health Clinic
If you have one or more long-term health conditions (e.g. asthma, COPD, heart disease or high blood pressure) we are keen to ensure that you have a review with the practice nurse every year.
The aim of these annual checks is to help you to manage your condition(s) and minimise the impact they have on your everyday life.
If you think you are due a review please ask reception for an appointment at the Better Health Clinic. You may also get a letter or phone call from us inviting you.
We hope that you will attend your reviews but if you choose not to, please let us know.
