We recommend several health checks in order to detect unsuspected disorders early:
Cervical smears - women between 25-64 should have a cervical smear every three years and women over the age of 50 should have a cervical smear every five years. Younger women may require more regular smears.
Screening mammograms - women between 50-65 will be offered these every three years.
Pre-conception advice - immunity to German measles should be checked and folic acid supplements started before a pregnancy if possible. Smoking and alcohol are harmful in pregnancy and should be avoided. It is particularly recommended that women with ongoing health problems such as epilepsy, heart disease and renal disease seek medical advice prior to pregnancy as this can help prevent problems for both mother and baby.
Blood Pressure - All adults should have their blood pressure checked every five years. Avoid smoking, excessive alcohol and reduce salt intake. Smoking cessation help is available.
Adult Immunisations - All adults should be immunised against tetanus.
Flu Vaccination - We recommend this annually for certain patients. Those with:
If in doubt whether you need it please ask. All of the above groups are invited to attend.
