Health Check Clinics
At Queensway, we are aware that prevention is better than cure. For this reason, we are now delighted to offer our patients between the ages of 40 and 75 a five-yearly Health Check.
If you are over 40 and have not been offered a health check but would like one, please contact us at the Surgery. For those patients who have not had the required blood tests done within the past 6 months, this will need to be arranged before an appointment can be given.
The clinics are aimed at patients who are not being seen regularly for chronic conditions and involves a blood test to look at your cholesterol levels and to check that you are not anaemic or possibly becoming diabetic.
Our nurses are trained to look at your results together with your height and weight ratio (BMI) and work out how healthy (or otherwise) your heart is. We look at your lifestyle, family history and diet and work with you to help you to stay fit and well or to improve your current fitness and quality of life.
The intention is not to lecture or judge but to offer an holistic approach to better health. We also offer additional facilities and clinics that might be useful for our patients looking to improve their fitness, lose weight or stop smoking.
Learning Disabilities Health Check Clinics
Please note, if you or a family member has a learning disability, we have clinics tailored for this purpose. The checks are very thorough and are carried out by staff trained in learning disability assistance and includes an examination by one of our Specialist GPs who will complete the examination and prepare a plan of care.
If you would like to be booked into this clinic please contact the Surgery to arrange a blood test followed by an appointment.
