We are able to offer appointments for immediate assessment and treatment of minor injuries at both surgeries. The types of injuries we are able to treat include:
Our Respiratory nurses provide routine monitoring of patients with Asthma or COPD and follow up patients after an exacerbation (flare up) of Asthma/COPD to try to prevent another exacerbation. We encourage patients with these conditions to be seen for a review at least once a year. We aim to work with you to find the most appropriate treatment leading to optimum symptom control. We also provide help, support and education for patients and families of those with respiratory conditions. There is good evidence that regular attendance at clinic and monitoring/education of patients regarding their condition reduces the risk of emergency admission to hospital.

Please note that all travel consultations should be booked 6-8 weeks prior to your date of travel to ensure optimum cover is achieved.
