Why have an NHS Health Check?
Why should I have an NHS Health Check?
Anyone can be at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and some forms of dementia. These can be referred to as vascular disease. The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented, even if you have a history of them in your family.
Everyone between the ages of 40 and 74 (except people who have already been diagnosed with one of these conditions or have certain risk factors) will be invited to a free NHS Health Check every five years. You do not have to wait to be invited, if you qualify you can book your NHS Health Check Appointment at Reception now
Have your check and you will be able to take steps to maintain or improve your health.

Named Accountable GP for all Patients
All patients have a named GP who is responsible for patients' overall care at the practice. If you wish to know who this is, please contact the practice. The named accountable GP will take lead responsibility for the coordination of all services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered for their patients where required (based on the clinical judgment of the named accountable GP). Although patients have a named accountable GP, they can see any GP in the practice.

Stop Norovirus Spreading
Norovirus, is the most common stomach bug in the UK, affecting people of all ages. It is highly contagious and is transmitted by contact with contaminated surfaces, an infected person, or consumption of contaminated food or water. The symptoms of norovirus are very distinctive - people often report a sudden onset of nausea followed by projectile vomiting and watery diarrhoea. Good hand hygiene is important to stop the spread of the virus.
People are advised to:
Wash their hands thoroughly using soap and water and drying them after using the toilet, before preparing food and eating.
Not rely on alcohol gels as these do not kill the virus.
An infection with norovirus is self-limiting and most people will make a full recovery in 1-2 days. It is important to keep hydrated - especially children and the elderly.
Do not visit either A&E or GPs with symptoms as this may spread the virus.
Further information and advice is available from NHS 111, including an online symptom checker at nhs.uk.
National Diabetes Audit
We are taking part in an important national project about diabetes care and treatment with the NDA. The type of information, and how it is shared, is controlled by law and enforced by strict rules of confidentiality and security. Taking part in the NDA shows that we are committed to improving care for people with Diabetes. If you do not want your information to be used, please inform the receptionist, your GP or nurse. This will not affect your care. More information is available - please see the NDA patient information leaflet.
