Asthma & COPD

Asthma is condition that affects the airways (the tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs). It affects about 3 million people of any age in the UK. Common symptoms are coughing, wheezing and/or shortness of breath.

It is difficult to say what causes Asthma, but we do know that if you have a family history of Asthma you may be more likely to develop this condition. Too many people with Asthma spend time in hospital when they shouldn’t have to. Did you know 75% of hospital admissions could be avoided?

You can take control of your Asthma by knowing what medicines to take, how much and when to take them. It is also important to avoid things that trigger your Asthma. Book an appointment with one of our nursing team to review your asthma and to have a spirometry test (lung function) done.


Diabetes is a condition in which the body has problems regulating its blood sugar (glucose) level. It is a common condition affecting about 2% of the population. It can begin at any age. Some diabetics will need to be treated with injections but the majority of people will be able to control their diabetes with diet, tablets and lifestyle changes.

If not properly treated diabetes can have serious complications. With proper monitoring and treatment the risk of complications are dramatically reduced. Our aim is to give you the support and advice you need to lead an active healthy life.

Our Practice Nurses are trained to look after our diabetic patients.


High blood pressure, or hypertension, rarely has noticeable symptoms. But if untreated, it increases your risk of serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes.

Around a third of adults in the UK have high blood pressure, although many will not realise it.

The only way to find out if your blood pressure is high is to have your blood pressure checked. Please contact our Reception team to book your appointment

NHS Health Check

We invite patients aged between 40 and 74 years old to attend an NHS Health Check. This is to help identify patients in this age group who may be at risk of developing cardiovascular disease, and to develop appropriate interventions to reduce this risk.

In some cases Cardiovascular problems can run in families but there can also be other risk factors involved. With your help and commitment, together with the practice team, we can help you reduce these risks.

Bowel Cancer Screening

NHS bowel cancer screening checks for bowel cancer. It’s available to everyone aged 60 to 74 years.

The programme is expanding to make it available to everyone aged 50 to 59 years. This is happening gradually over 4 years and started in April 2021.

You use a home test kit, called a faecal immunochemical test (FIT), to collect a small sample of poo and send it to a lab. This is checked for tiny amounts of blood. Blood can be a sign of polyps or bowel cancer. Polyps are growths in the bowel. They are not cancer, but may turn into cancer over time.


If the test finds anything unusual, you might be asked to go to hospital to have further tests to confirm or rule out cancer.

Always see a GP if you have symptoms of bowel cancer at any age, even if you have recently completed a NHS bowel cancer screening test kit – do not wait to have a screening test.
