Health Promotion and Other Clinics
In addition to normal surgery, we are able to provide the following specialised services at the Eryl Surgery and some at the branch surgeries (enquire at reception). These are run by a combination of nurses, doctors and health visitors.
The practice nurses see patients for consultations, routine treatments, blood tests, BP checks, ECGs, dressings and foreign travel immunisations and advice.
Periodic Health Checks
Patients between the ages of 16-74 who have not been seen at the surgery for a period of three years may request a consultation with a GP, at which any appropriate inquiries and investigations will be made. Consultations can also be requested by patients over the age of 75 who have not been seen at the surgery for 12 months or more. Consultations for the over-75s will take place at home if appropriate.
