Long-term Conditions Management Clinics
- Our nurse and pharmacy teams run regular:
ischaemic heart disease
and hypertension clinics
- Management of long-term conditions will initially take place over the telephone. For many people this will be sufficient but a face-to-face appointment may be required. Any home monitoring you already do, eg. blood pressure, will be very useful. We will be in touch but if you have any concerns please arrange a phone consultation rather than waiting.
Coil and Implant Service
A Coil and Implant Service is available at the Surgery. This clinic runs once per month, usually mid-month on a Thursday afternoon. Patients can access this service by arranging a consultation with Dr Catherine Smith to discuss their options and a note of their contact details are taken at that time. Thereafter, the Practice arranges to contact the patients to book their appointment into the appropriate clinic.
