Coronary heart disease services:
This is a service to monitor all patients who have had a coronary event or have been diagnosed as having angina.
All our diabetic patients are offered an annual check up with a six months follow-up in the practice or the hospital. Your diet and weight are checked and diabetic control is discussed. Arrangements are made for you to see a doctor if necessary. Prior to the appointment you may need to have a blood test.

These are held bi-monthly to treat minor skin complaints. The doctor will refer you if deemed appropriate.

See your doctor in normal surgery hours for advice and help with family planning and contraception.
Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC)
The Department of Health has asked us to make you aware of long acting reversible contraception (LARC), which includes:
- Contraceptive Implants
This is because statistically these methods are more effective at reducing unwanted pregnancies than the contraceptive pill. If you want further information about these methods, please talk to the practice nurse when you have your annual pill check.
Again, see your doctor in normal surgery hours; he/she will care for you during your pregnancy with our midwives.
