Health Promotion:

As part of the services we provide at Greyfriars Surgery, we wish to support our patients by offering a variety of different health promotion options to our patients, these are offered by our practice nurses. Some of the options are weight reduction, smoking advice and other services that may be able to support your individual needs.

As part of our health promotions, we are also able to offer some health checks, which are carried out by our nursing team. If you’re aged 40 to 74 and do not have a pre-existing health condition, you will be invited to an NHS Health Check every 5 years. If you believe you are eligible you can contact the receptionist team or await a message to get booked in.

A health check will consist of a BMI check, a blood test, and a blood pressure check. During this appointment you may be asked some questions that relate to a your health such as if there are any health conditions in the family, how much you smoke or alcohol you drink and how much physical activity you do.
