Diabetic Clinic

These clinics are for monitoring patients with diabetes. Our aim is to prevent complications by achieving good control. Self management is positively encouraged and support is provided. Liaison with other clinical support staff e.g. Retinal screening and Podiatry is facilitated at this clinic. Diabetic patients will receive an appointment for annual eye screening which will come directly from the Health Authority. Cath Jamieson and Emma Nadin run the Diabetic clinics at both sites.

Hypertension Clinic

High blood pressure for a long period increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes. This risk can be reduced by controlling blood pressure - we have a programme of assessment including blood tests, urine tests and ECGs. There are several clinics a week for checking of blood pressure. Speak to Reception to arrange an appointment.

INR - Wafarin Monitoring

Our Health Care Assistants are available by appointment to test your blood in the surgery; they have the facility to give results and new Wafarin dosage immediately. Unlike other blood tests, INR tests can be done any time during surgery hours. This includes Saturday mornings at Newbold Verdon practice.

Cervical Screening

All women between the ages of 25 and 49 years are invited to have a cervical smear every three years, and thereafter every 5 years regardless of their sexual history until the age of 64. These smear tests detect any early changes that might lead to cancer later on. On receipt of your invitation from the Health Authority, please make an appointment with the practice nurse.

Physiotherapy

Following a referral by the Doctor, physiotherapy is available at both practices.

Podiatry

If you have a foot problem the Podiatry, (chiropody), service provides a a full range of foot and lower limb care. You may be referred by your Doctor or you may acces the service yourself by obtaining an application form from reception. The clinic is held at Newbold Verdon Practice.
