3)    Although you are registered with the practice you can request to see a partner/GP of your choice.  It will not always be possible to consult with a particular doctor due to courses and holidays.

 

4)   Services are available for temporary residents offering immediately necessary treatment.

 

5)   We provide services for patients who are ill or believe themselves to be ill and we work with patients to manage their long-term diseases.

 

Chronic Disease Clinics:  We offer specialist nurses supported by doctor-run clinics for those patients suffering from:

  • Asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) in the Respiratory Clinic
  • Diabetes in the Diabetic Clinic
  • Coronary Heart Disease or Stroke in the Vascular Clinic
  • Hypertension in the Vascular Clinic
  • Chronic Renal (Kidney) Disease in the CKD Clinic

If you suffer from a chronic disease you will be invited to an annual review. You are advised to attend so that your condition can be monitored and your medication reviewed to ensure you are achieving the maximum relief from your disease.  This also provides an opportunity for you to ask any questions about your condition.

 

Child Health Clinics:  All children are offered Child Health Development checks.  These are carried out by health visitors.  Please call (01756) 702344 for more information.

 

Contraception and Women's Health: The doctors and nurses offer a full range of contraceptive services. Women's Health Clinics are held weekly. IUCD (coil) insertions are undertaken by Dr Helen Wilkinson or Dr Kate Thomas. LARCS (Long-acting reversible contraceptive implants) are undertaken by practice nurses. Please contact the surgery for further details about these services.

Travel Clinic: If you are travelling abroad and think you may need travel vaccinations, please print out a travel questionnaire via the link below and bring into the surgery. Please then ask to make an appointment in the Travel Clinic. Our Practice Nurse runs the Travel Clinic on a Friday afternoon between 1.30pm and 5.30pm.

 

Important: Where possible, please make an appointment at least 4 weeks before you are due to travel so that your vaccinations have time to be effective.

 

After the Practice Nurse has looked at your questionnaire if you do not need to have an appointment she will ring you to cancel it. If you require vaccinations these will be administered at your Travel Clinic appointment.

Sexual Health Service: If you are worried that you have a sexually transmitted infection or would simply like the reassurance of having a check-up, you can now get tests (e.g, chlamydia testing kits) and treatment from Dyneley House Surgery, Crosshills Surgery and Townhead Surgery at Settle.  Simply call one of the above practices and ask for a sexual health appointment.  People don’t have to be registered with the practice they attend for the Sexual Health Service and all calls are confidential.  More information about sexual health can be found at www.yorsexualhealth.org.uk.

 

NHS Health Checks:  This check is part of a national scheme to help prevent the onset of certain conditions such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes or kidney disease.

 

Everyone between the ages of 40 and 74 who has not been diagnosed with these conditions will be invited by letter for a check-up once every 5 years.  It is impossible to say whether someone will or will not go on to develop one of these conditions, but taking action early can help to lower your potential risk and improve your chances of living a longer and healthier life.
