Clinics & Services
Dr Joyce performs minor surgery/cryotherapy and will remove warts, moles etc. You will initially need to discuss this with one of the Doctors who can reffer you onto this clinic if appropriate. You may be asked to attend for an appointment prior to any surgery/cryotherapy. Please note, for these services there may be a waiting list.
Long-Term Conditions Management
We hold various clinics to support patients in their management of their long-term condition (also referred to as chronic diseases). These include Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Chronic Kidney Disease, Heart Failure, Cardiovascular Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hypertension and related conditions. These are by appointment only and some are delivered by the Practice Nurses. Please read about our Birthday Medical Reviews for patients with long-term conditions.
We have started to use a Person Centred Approach to Care & Planning for our patients who have a long term condition. We began by working with our diabetic patients and this year we are including patients with COPD. Over time, we are hoping to roll out this approach to all of our patients with a long term condition.
A leaflet with more information about Person Centred Planning is available here.
We will share your care with the hospital staff and the community midwives - reception will be happy to arrange your first appointment with the midwife here at the practice once your pregnancy is confirmed and the midwife will make the appropriate arrangements for your care.
More information can be found on our Pregnancy Care Planner page.
