CHRONIC DISEASE CLINICS
It is recommended that patients with asthma, diabetes, coronary heart disease and other chronic disease attend for annual review with their doctor or our practice nurse to ensure they are receiving appropriate treatment. Where appropriate your doctor will arrange for regular recall letters to be sent and care is offered in co-ordination with specialist nurses and hospital clinics.
FLU AND PNEUMOVAX CLINICS
Every year we hold flu immunisation clinics for people at risk from flu including those with diabetes, asthma and chest conditions or aged over 65. Patients advised by their doctor to have the vaccine should contact the surgery in mid-September, after 10.30am to make an appointment for the flu clinic which commence in October. The Health Authority no longer send reminders.
These are carried out at specific times as arranged with your doctor.
Joint injections are carried out with specific doctors.
