Chronic Illness Management
The following clinics are run by the nurses and doctors. Some of them will require you to have blood tests beforehand.
You will receive notification from the Clinic Administrators when you are due for an appointment. This letter will normally have a large capital letter/number printed at the top, as a reference. Please advise the Reception staff of this letter/number when you make your appointment because this will help them ensure you are booked for the correct clinics.
Coronary Heart Disease
Health Clinics Available At The Surgery
Our aim is to keep our patients fit and healthy. Prevention is far better than cure and many serious conditions can be prevented by a healthy life style.
Appointments/details regarding the following clinics can be made at reception
Flu Clinics are held each autumn over several days
Minor surgery (There is a waiting list and patients will be invited)
New patient checks
The practice provides a full immunisation service, by appointment only.
The Services for Children & Young People at Longbow House, Shrewsbury, will automatically send a letter to you when your child is due to attend the child immunisation clinic, inviting you to make an appointment with us.
Please always bring your child's Red Record Book with you. If your child cannot attend their appointment, please let the surgery know, as well as the telephone number on your letter, as soon as possible, so that the cancellation may be offered to another patient.
The doctors and nurses provide advice on family planning, including oral contraception, depot (injectable), implants, coils, contraceptive preparations and the fitting and checking of caps.
These are carried out by our specially trained practice nurses. You will receive written notification of your smear result, usually within 6 weeks of the test.
Blood Pressure Checks
As part of some of our routine clinics, you may be asked to undertake a series of home blood pressure readings if you have your own home blood pressure monitor. If so, please click the image below to download one of our forms below for recording your readings.
