Annual Health Checks
The practice nurses, under Dr Jarvis, are responsible for the programme of annual health checks which are recommended for people with previous heart disease, stroke, kidney disorders or mental health problems. Please ask at the practice if you feel that you should have been offered such a check but have not.
High Blood Pressure
We recommend that people with hypertension should have a blood pressure check every 6 months, or more often if it is uncontrolled. The checks can be undertaken by any member of our nursing team.
