The NHS Health Check is for adults in England between the ages of 40 and 74. Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes or kidney disease. But these diseases can often be prevented, and NHS Health Check can help you by assessing your risk and giving you personalised advice on how to reduce it, you can book an appointment directly with the nurse for the initial blood tests.

INR testing for patients on Warfarin
Anticoagulant testing is undertaken by the HCA during normal nursing appointments. The service is availble for patients who are stable on Warfarin medication. Any patients whose INR proves difficult to control will be referred to the anticoagulation clinic at a local hospital
Diabetic clinics are run once a week—usually on a Wednesday. Please call the surgery to book in for your annual check.
If you are asthmatic and using inhalers you are advised to attend an asthma clinic at least annually. Please call the practice to book an appointment. The GP/Nurse will review your medication and give you advice on how to best manage your asthma.
Advice for patients should the GP request that you have a spirometry test:
- The receptionist will book you two appointments, with a 10 minute break between them.
- Please do not use your inhaler on the day of your test.
- Please bring your inhalers with you to the appointment.
The practice runs a stop smoking service with the Health Care Assistant. If you are interested please call the surgery to book an appointment to discuss. We can offer various stop smoking aids and give advice and guidance on how you can start taking the steps to give up.
Please leave 5 working days before trying to obtain your test results, then call the surgery after 11am on 0208 977 2638.
We are only able to give results to the patient which they relate to. To maintain patient confidentiality, prior written consent is required if another person is going to obtain results for one of our patients.
