Clinics & Services
Asthma and Diabetic Clinics
Sister Downie is trained in the management of both asthma and diabetes. In conjunction with one of the doctors she can help check your inhaler technique and give general advice about your asthma and discuss the problems and management of diabetes. Please tell the receptionist if you are booking in for an asthma or diabetic check up.
Chronic Disease Reviews
Sister Downie is also trained to review patients with other chronic health problems such as stroke and coronary heart disease and COPD and Heart Failure. You will be invited annually for a review with the nurse. With some conditions it is valuable to have up to date blood tests performed prior to the review and the receptionist will guide/advise you about this.
