All GP practices are contracted to provide ‘essential services’, that is basic treatment of ill people. We also hold a contract with NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde to provide additional services: child health surveillance, contraceptive services, antenatal and postnatal services, routine immunisation of children, immunisation of adults in relation to travel but note, (but please note that not all travel immunisations are available on the NHS).
Our nurses help provide the services that we contract from NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde for the following enhanced services:
- The annual flu immunisation programme to protect the elderly and those patients at risk.
- Annual comprehensive reviews for patients with heart disease, diabetes, stroke, hypertension (every 6 months), epilepsy, asthma, COPD and thyroid.
- Regular monitoring by blood and urine test for patients on a wide range of drugs for arthritis.
They also work with the Scottish Cervical Call Recall System (SCCRS) to ensure that women between the ages of 25 – 65 years are called for their smear every three to five years dependant on age or sooner if required according to the Scottish guidelines. This can also include family planning and sexual health.
Appointments can be made for any of these review clinics by contacting the reception.
