 The Barn Surgery

Your Health


We recommend certain wise measures such as:

  • On joining the surgery, all adults over the age of 40 make an appointment for a health screening check
  • If you are diabetic, asthmatic, epileptic, have hypothyroidism or chronic heart disease, or have a history of stroke, you should see the GP or Practice Nurse at least once a year. Patients with high blood pressure should make an appointment to see the GP or Practice Nurse once every 6 months. We can advise on home monitoring of blood pressure.
  • Women having a cervical smear test every 3 – 5 years to prevent cervical cancer. You will be called when you are due.
  • Women examining their breasts regularly to detect for breast cancer (the Practice Nurse will show you how) – routine mammography is available.
  • Keeping up to date with immunisations. If going abroad, check with the Practice Nurse at least 8 weeks ahead for required immunisations.
  • If you have a relative with glaucoma, you should have your eye pressure periodically measured by an optician.
  • It is unwise to smoke – our smoking cessation advisor can help you to give up.
  • Treat yourself better. Please click on following link.  http://www.treatyourselfbetter.co.uk/.
