Clinics

Flu Clinic 

Run by Practice Nurses. Flu vaccinations are provided by the practice during early autumn. Details will be displayed on our notice board in the practice.

We recommend flu vaccinations for all elderly patients, carers, pregnant women and patients with severe or chronic illnesses that have been advised by the doctor.

The Department of Health recommends that all patients with asthma, chronic heart disease, chronic renal failure, diabetes and anybody with a form of immunosuppression be offered a flu vaccination.

Flu vaccinations are also recommended for all residents of nursing homes, old people’s homes and long stay facilities where there is a risk of rapid spread of any such infection.

Feel free to call the practice to see when our Flu Clinic is active and to book an appointment regarding your vaccination.

Diabetic Clinic

Run by our highly experienced practice nurses. Around the time of your birthday you’ll receive a letter reminding you to have a diabetic check up. It is well recognised that good control of blood sugar levels can significantly reduce the risk of serious complications of diabetes. Our team can help you achieve your target blood sugars and reduce these risks. 

You’ll be advised on all forms of necessary diabetic care and we can make sure your treatment is up to date and having positive effects.
