Our team of practice nurses and healthcare support workers work alongside the GPs and hospital consultants to help monitor and manage our patients with long term conditions.
We routinely invite patients to come in for reviews which can involve:
We recommend that all patients with asthma have regular reviews to assess their treatment and to ensure they are on the appropriate medication. We will invite you annually for this review (children under the age of 16 years every 6 months for a review)
We recommend all patients with diabetes have a 6 monthly review with the practice nurse, 2 weeks prior to the review appointment we ask that you have a routine blood test (annually fasting blood test).
We recommend all our patients with Coronary Heart Disease have an annual review with our practice nurses, prior to this review we would suggest a fasting blood test with our Health Care Support Workers about 2 weeks before.
We recommend all patients with high blood pressure attend the practice for a 6 monthly BP check, this can be done by our Health Care Support Workers.
There are two types of high blood pressure:
We recommend all patients with COPD attend the practice for a six monthly review with the practice nurse. We also suggest an annual lung function test which can be done by either the practice nurse or Health Care Support Worker.
It is recommended that patients with any of the above have an annual flu jab - our clinics run from September, please look out for our notices as we will not send out invites for this vaccine.
NHS Health Checks
We offer a free NHS Health Check for adults in England between the ages of 40 and 74, at the check we will take your family medical history, check basic data such as your height, weight, blood pressure and pulse, offer any advice about smoking and weight loss if appropriate and do a simple blood test to check your cholesterol, which will help you by assessing your risk and giving you personalised advice on how to reduce it.
We will contact patients by letter when they are due to have the test and strongly recommend that all patients take advantage of this free check.
If you are travelling abroad, you may need special immunisations. Please ask at reception for a travel form at least 6 weeks before you travel to enable the nurses’ time to review your medical records and order any vaccines. Your appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Our nurses are also available for the following:
The practice nurses offer basic sexual health advice, but for full sexual health screening please contact the GU Clinic on 01522 539145. The practice is part of NHS Lincolnshire Condom scheme.
The C Card is available to all young people aged 13 - 24. It is a free service that offers advice and support about relationships and sex and provides free condoms and lubricants plus loads of useful information. The C Card scheme is completely confidential. If you choose to tell your friends or your parents or carers, that’s great, but the member of staff won’t.
Free chlamydia screening kits are available for all young people aged 15-24 (ask at reception).
For further information regarding sexual health, please follow the links below:
C - Card
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
