Over 70s Health Information

Health/Wellbeing Check

All patients over 70 are welcome to book a health/wellbeing check with our nursing team. 

 

The health check will take approximately 40 minutes and the nurse will check your BP, weight, height, blood test and enquire about any other health needs you require assistance with.

 

You will receive an invitation annually starting from your 70th Birthday. 

Named GP

All patients have a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

 

The GP will also work with other relevant health and care professionals who are involved in your care to ensure that your care package meets your individual needs.

 

This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.
