NHS Health Check
The NHS health check programme is an ambitious Department of Health (DOH) initiative which will offer preventive
checks to all those aged 40-74 (inclusive) to assess their risk of cardiovascular disease (heart disease, hypertension, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease) and pick up unidentified CVD followed by appropriate management and intervention, where necessary. The Yiewsley Family Practice is committed to provide this service to the target patients.
All healthcare orginisations have a duty under the Children Act 2004, Section 11, to make arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. The Yiewsley Family Practice believes in safeguarding/promoting the welfare of children and has staff members competent in child surveillance issues.
Ask directly for your Self-referral form via Reception to make an appointment with a Chiropodist to be seen within the community.
Travel Advice And Vaccinations
This service is by appointment only with our practice nurses. They can give advice and arrange vaccinations. Some vaccinations cannot be given at the same time and therefore will need to be consulted well in advance (preferably at least two months) of your departure as some vaccinations take time to be effective.
Most travel immunisations can be provided free on the NHS.
Newly registered patients, those aged 75 or over who have not had a consultation in the past year and adult patients between the ages of 16 and 75 who have not had a consultation in the past three years all have the right to request a health check consultation with either a doctor or nurse at the practice. Please call reception to arrange an appointment.
