Life Style clinic is held by appointments with practice nurse
Keeping fit and healthy can be a challenge if you are living with a long-term condition, but it will make a big difference to your wellbeing. If you’ve been thinking about making changes to your lifestyle, such as stopping smoking, losing weight, eating healthily, drinking a little less alcohol, or doing more exercise, there’s plenty of help and support available.
For example, if you want to start exercising but you're unsure how to, our practice nurse can put you on the Exercise on Referral scheme. These schemes are run with local gyms and fitness centres and can include swimming.
Patients can take a greater involvement in their own healthcare via the internet, in a similar way to shopping or banking online.
My Health Online gives patients the opportunity to book GP appointments order repeat prescriptions update their general details such as change of address all from the convenience of your own computer or device.

Long-term illnesses are managed by the whole health care team.
Chronic disease refers to medical conditions that may have an ongoing impact on your health. In particular we use this term to refer to the following conditions:
Hypertension, Diabetes, Asthma, COPD, CKD (Chronic kidney disease),
Mental Health conditions such as schizophrenia or bipolar depression,
Ischaemic heart disease, Heart Failure, Stroke, mini-stroke (TIA), Rheumatoid , Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Thyroid disease, Atrial Fibrillation,
Peripheral arterial disease
We encourage our patients to take an active role in helping to manage their own conditions, but it is helpful to come for a review once a year.
We would like to ask for your help in this matter. By taking responsibility for your medical condition you can help ensure that you are having the best possible care.
This review process is important and we will not be able to continue prescribing repeat medications without it.
