We offer an annual medication review to each patient on repeat medication, particularly if they have a chronic health condition. If you have a medication review indicated on your repeat medication sheet but do not think you need a review (e.g. stable, well-controlled asthma) please leave the doctor a brief note.

NHS Health Checks
The NHS Health Check is a sophisticated check of your heart health. Aimed at adults in England aged 40 to 74, it checks your vascular or circulatory health and works out your risk of developing some of the most disabling – but preventable – illnesses.
Think of your NHS Health Check as being your “midlife MOT.” It checks that some of your body’s most important systems are all running smoothly. Among other things, your blood pressure, cholesterol and BMI will all be checked and your results given to you.
Crucially, your NHS Health Check can detect potential problems before they do real damage. Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and some forms of dementia. The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented.
Your NHS Health Check will assess your risk of developing these health problems and give you personalised advice on how to reduce it. It’s free of charge, including any follow-up tests or appointments.
Our Health Care Assistant can complete your NHS Health Check, available to all 40 – 74 year olds. Please follow the link for further information.
These Services are provided by the community midwife.

This service was established for patients struggling with stress and needing to talk in confidence. The hour long appointments are offered by specifically trained listeners and offers the patient an opportunity to verbalise issues and reflect, so allowing them to find their own solution. This service is open to all patients and appointments can be made directly by the reception staff accessing the Listening Service diary. For some patients this may be a helpful prelude to the counselling service.
As part of the Talking Therapies programme in Sheffield, a structured approach in dealing with debilitating conditions such as depression and anxiety disorders is offered. If you wish to make an appointment please see a GP who will signpost you to an appropriate service. For more information or to self-refer, see the Talking Therapies website.
