NHS Health Check
The NHS Health Check is for adults in England between the ages of 40 and 74. Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes or kidney disease. But these diseases can often be prevented, and NHS Health Check can help you by assessing your risk and giving you personalised advice on how to reduce it, you can book an appointment directly with the nurse for the initial blood tests.

INR testing for patients on Warfarin
Anticoagulant testing is undertaken by the HCA during normal nursing appointments. The service is availble for patients who are stable on Warfarin medication.
Any patients whose INR proves difficult to control will be referred to the anticoagulation clinic at a local hospital.
Diabetic clinics are run once a week—usually on a Wednesday.
If you are due for a review, you can request your annual check using our online form.
If you are asthmatic and using inhalers you are advised to attend an asthma clinic at least annually.
If you are due an asthma review, please complete our online form. The GP/Nurse will review your medication and give you advice on how to best manage your asthma.
Advice for patients should the GP request that you have a spirometry test:
- The receptionist will book you two appointments, with a 10 minute break between them.
- Please do not use your inhaler on the day of your test.
- Please bring your inhalers with you to the appointment.
The practice runs a stop smoking service with the Health Care Assistant.
If you are interested please book an appointment to discuss. We can offer various stop smoking aids and give advice and guidance on how you can start taking the steps to give up.
You do not need to see the GP when you first become pregnant.
Instead you can self-refer directly to Kingston Hospital Maternity Services.
If you do wish to book an appointment with the GP, please do so at around 6-8 weeks of conceiving. We do not perform pregnancy tests in the surgery so you will need to obtain an over-the-counter test before coming to see your GP.
After having your baby, we would like you and baby to book a 30 minute post-natal appointment with a doctor to coincide with 8 weeks after the birth date.
During this visit, you will have the opportunity to discuss any issues you might be experiencing and to give your baby their first set of immunisations in order to protect them from disease.
It is of the utmost importance that children are kept up to date with the recommended vaccinations to protect them and other against disease.
If your child has not received all of the recommended immunisations, please book an appointment with our Practice Nurse or Health Visitor (based at Teddington Clinic).
Further information on the childhood immunisation programme can be found on the NHS website.
