CHRONIC DISEASE MONITORING: we encourage patients living with a long term chronic condition to make an annual appointment for relevant blood monitoring around their birthday. Reviews for respiratory conditions will be carried out via telephone by our Practice Nurse.
In the near future, the practice will be trialling new software for the monitoring of asthma. This has been developed by a company called Inhealthcare and approved by the Health Board. It will involve a questionnaire being sent via text message for patients to complete. The results will be reviewed by a clinician who will contact patients if necessary. If you suffer from asthma and receive an invitation to complete a questionnaire, we would be grateful for your participation.

CERVICAL SMEARS: patients who receive their invite for a smear test from SCCRS should contact the practice for an appointment with a member of our nursing team.
FAMILY PLANNING: can be discussed with the Practice Nurse or at routine GP appointments.
MINOR SURGERY: certain GPs carry out procedures such as joint injections, removal of cysts, moles and wart treatments at the practice by arrangement.
INR CLINICS: we currently run an INR clinic once per week for our patients on Warfarin.
