The aim of promoting health is to try to identify risk factors at an early stage and thereby prevent them from causing ill health. For this reason we will ask about drinking and smoking habits and measure your blood pressure and weight from time to time. This is especially wise in people with a family history of heart disease, diabetes or stroke.
Medical examinations for special purposes, such as fitness to travel, pre-employment, insurance, driving medicals etc are undertaken during normal surgery hours. A fee will be payable. Please contact the surgery to make an appointment. Fees are clearly displayed in the reception area.
