Asthma and COPD Clinics
We hold clinics to diagnose and to help patients to manage their asthma or COPD.
We like to see all our patients who have been diagnosed with these conditions at least once a year, depending on the severity of your condition, we may invite you to come to the clinic more often in order to ensure we give you the care you require.
The practice offers regular check-ups and advice from practice nurses on lifestyle, inhaler techniques and medication.
Hypertension relates to High Blood Pressure.
High blood pressure often causes no symptoms, or immediate problems, but it is a major risk factor for developing a serious cardiovascular disease (conditions that affect the functioning of the heart and the circulation of blood around the body), such as a stroke or heart disease.
Our specialist diabetes team will provide you with support, regular reviews and the day-to-day care of your needs.
All Diabetic patients are entitled to an annual review. The Practice will normally contact you if yours is due. The review takes place in two parts – a data collection appointment and where appropriate, a follow up care plan appointment. If you feel you have been missed, or require a more urgent review, then please contact the Practice to arrange an appointment.
At the initial data collection appointment, your blood pressure, weight, urine, feet and well-being will be checked. It is necessary for you to bring an early morning urine sample with you. Following your initial appointment, if necessary, an appointment with your GP or one of our specialist nurses will be arranged.
We offer a range of clinics and services here at Headstone Lane Medical Centre to help manage chronic heart diseases such as Angina, Heart disease, Heart failure.
