We offer screening to some patients in the form of a routine Blood Pressure check.  We are looking for and irregular heartbeat (Atrial Fibrillation) which if left undetected increases the chance of stroke and further heart complications.  This is a routine form of preventative medicine.




We are having our annual equipment check completed in November. If you would like your blood pressure machine checked then please CLEARLY MARK IT WITH YOUR NAME and bring it in for one of the following times.

Hempnall  Leave it with us on the 10th November and collect it on the 12th.

Poringland   Leave it with us on the 11th November and collect it on the 13th.

We will be charging £5 towards the cost of this.


PORINGLAND NEW BUILDING -  We have a couple of problems which we ar ediscussing with the architect.  Firstly there is a serious echo in reception.  This can be sorted and there is a company advising us.  Meanwhile, if you need to speak to a receptionist confidentially please just ask as we have a convenient room to slip into.  Also, we have no letter box.  Until this matter is corrected please bring your repeat slips in during opening hours, post them to us as the postman delivers during office hours or order electronically.  Sorry for this inconvenience, unfortuantely we can not simply put an unsecure post box outside as most of the information and requests we receive is medical in conficence.

NAMED GP - Everyone in the practice now has a named GP.  If you are unsure who yours is then please ask at reception, but please remember that you can still see whichever GP you prefer.
