The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It’s designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia.
We do not provide routine blood taking service, but there is an excellent local walk in service at Bradwell Hospital or Cobridge Health Center, or an appointment based clinic at Milehouse Primary Care Centre or Tunstall Primary Care Center.
We offer a minor surgery service for removal of ‘lumps and bumps’ which are clinically indicated. Please note there is a waiting list for this service.
We offer a 6 week baby check as routine, but many of our GPs are experienced parents and clinicians to be able to offer help and advice about child development. We also have close links with local health visiting teams.
Antenatal / Postnatal
Antenatal and Postnatal Care is provided by appointment only in conjunction with the community midwives and the doctor.
We no longer provide smoking cessation service and recommend the excellent NHS website http://www.nhs.uk/smokefree .
Dietary & Exercise Advice
Our nursing team can offer you help and advice on healthy lifestyle, as well as help you access the latest NHS programme available in our area.
Chronic Disease Management
All our clinical staff are trained and experienced in helping you manage your long term conditions. Our recall system is based upon at least 1 yearly review contact, which is around your BIRTH MONTH; an easy system which helps all of us to plan care. You may need to have some routine blood tests before annual reviews, and we may also need to see you more frequently if the condition merits.
Our clinical team provide family planning advice ranging from contraception to pre-conception advice. Please book a routine appointment to discuss your needs with a doctor or a nurse. We can also provide emergency contraception, as well as long acting reversible contraception (LARCs) which include “the coil” and “the implant”. We have both male and female clinicians to discuss your needs. We do not currently provide vasectomy services, but can refer you to a local NHS provider for this.
Cervical Smears are routinely repeated every three years. These are usually booked with a female nurse or doctor. Please tell the receptionist if you are booking for a smear. For more information please see the NHS Screening Website .
We offer an influenza vaccination service by a team of trained clinicians. You can be assured that we are all experienced in providing injections and have been providing this service for many years.
