Heart Disease Clinic
Appointments will be offered to all patients who have angina or who have had a heart attack or stroke, who have heart failure, or who are at high risk of developing heart disease. The aim is to review the condition and treatment, and lower risk factors in order to prevent further illness.
Anticoagulant Monitoring and Near-Patient Testing
Patients taking Warfarin, or other drugs which need regular blood monitoring can attend the surgery for blood tests. You will be notified if this applies to you.
Flu vaccinations are available annually from late September onwards. If you are aged 65 or over or have a condition that places you 'at risk' please telephone the surgery to make an appointment for vaccination.
