North House offers a range of special clinics which include diabetic, respiratory and healthy heart appointments, all held each weekday. Details as follows:
Diabetic patients, whether controlling their condition with diet, tablets or with insulin injections, should be reviewed regularly as regards their general health. The aim of the clinic is to keep all people with diabetes in good health and, whenever possible, prevent complications of diabetes by good control of blood sugar levels and blood pressure readings. We will carry out checks of blood pressure, eye and foot health. Blood tests will be offered to participating patients one week before the clinic date.
The purpose of this clinic is to enable accurate diagnosis and treatment of those people with asthma and chronic lung problems. We aim to raise awareness, allowing you to manage your own condition.
Healthy Heart Clinic
Patients with current or past diagnosis of angina or a similar heart condition will be reviewed in the CHD clinic on an annual basis. We will carry out checks of blood pressure and review treatment as appropriate. Blood tests will be checked prior to clinic attendance to measure cholesterol.
