CHRONIC DISEASE SCREENING
Our Practice Nurse offers advice and routine health check-ups for patients diagnosed with chronic diseases such as Asthma, COPD, Epilepsy, Heart Disease, Learning Disabilities etc.
Advice and monitoring is also available on the prevention of Heart Disease and Diabetes. Please see our receptionist for more details. We are holding Annual Health Checks for the age group 40/74yrs.
Are You between 40-74yrs?
Everyone is at risk of developing Heart Disease, Stroke, Type 2 Diabetes or even Kidney Disease but these diseases can often be prevented.
Primary Care in Bolton have been running a programme via the Bolton Quality Contract to identify patients as being at 'High Risk' through having an NHS Health Check. NHS Health Checks are aimed at people between the ages of 40-74 years that do not already have a history of CHD, Stroke, PVD, Familial Hypercholestrolaemia and Diabetes.
Those patients that do not suffer from the above should have an NHS health check every 5 years.
Please contact reception to make an appointment with our Health Improvement Practitioner, Practice Nurse or HCA (Help us, Help you!) - NHS Health Check
