Specialist nurse clinics
We are proud of our highly skilled and knowledgeable nurse team who run our Long Term Conditions (LTC) Management Clinics. The Practice Nurses and Health Care Assistants are all ARTP Spirometry Practitioners and are well qualified to manage Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Hypertension, Heart Disease and Dementia. We are quite unique in our approach to LTC management and have received high praise and positive feedback from patients, families and carers. Our LTC clinic initiative has been recognised as an exemplar model by the Royal College of GPs. Please click on this link for the Spirometry Leaflet
To improve your treatment and for your convenience try to see patients with multiple conditions at our one stop clinics. This usually means we can deal with all your care in one visit per year. You are welcome to bring a family member or carer.
We will ask you to have a blood test at least one week before your appointment, so that your GP can view and interpret the results prior to the clinic appointment.
After you have been seen in the clinic, your GP receives all important information and feedback about you and will arrange to make contact with you if necessary.
As you will appreciate these appointments are very valuable, so if you cannot keep your appointment please let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer it to another patient, as well as rescheduling another appointment for you.
