Diabetes is a condition which is becoming ever more common, and there is a lot that can be done to reduce the severity of any complications from this disease.
We hold Diabetic checks regularly for our Diabetic patients, and you will be sent a letter when you are due to come into the surgery to see the nurse.
If this is your first visit she will arrange for you to have a blood tests to monitor your kidney function and to estimate how well your diabetes is controlled. You will also need to bring a urine sample.
She will measure your blood pressure, weight, and eyesight. She will test the urine for glucose and protein and discuss the results of your home blood glucose tests, so remember to bring your results with you. She will look at the results of your blood tests and discuss those with you. She may then advise you on your progress and if necessary she can adjust your medication.
We also have a specialist diabetic nurse who runs a clinic twice per month. Patients need to be referred to this clinic and help those patients with more complicated symptoms.

Introduction to Travelling Abroad with Diabetes
Travelling with a Medical Condition
The NHS Health Check programme is for adults in England aged between 40 and 74. If you're invited for an NHS Health Check you'll be offered a series of routine tests that will help identify your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and type 2 diabetes. You can find out more about the importance of those diseases in Why these four diseases?
Why Do I Need A Health Check?
Everyone has a chance of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or type 2 diabetes. NHS Health Check will help you and your GP or health professional to identify your risk earlier. You'll then be given advice on what action you can take to lower your risk and improve your chances of a healthier life. For example, making changes to your diet or becoming more active.
How Do I Get A Health Check?
If you're aged between 40 and 74 and haven't already been diagnosed with heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, or had a stroke, you will be invited for your check at some time over the coming years. Local primary care trusts (PCTs) will choose who receives the check first. This means it may be some time before you're invited. If you're registered with a GP, you may be invited for the check by letter, or you may be offered the check when you're at your GP or local pharmacy for another reason. If you're not registered with a GP, it's a good idea to register now.
If you're concerned about your health, don't wait until your NHS Health Check to do something about it. Go to your GP as you would normally. Adults who have already been diagnosed with one of the four diseases won't be invited for the check, and their condition will continue to be managed as usual.

For more information, contact the surgery.

Condoms should be used for vaginal, anal and oral sex to protect against, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Genital Warts, Genital Herpes, and HIV amongst others, and to prevent unintended pregnancies. STIs are much more common than you may think and often there are no symptoms.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.

What is the PCPO scheme?
The Primary Care Patient Offer (PCPO) is a national programme that offers patients more choice and drives up standards of care.
The PCPO allows patients to access a full range of services either in house or by referral to a host practice.
Derby Road have always offered the full range of services stipulated within the PCPO, services such as ECG’s, Phlebotomy, ear syringing etc. however many practices do not have the facilities or staff trained to provide these services so therefore refer patients to the practices that do.
With the PCPO programme, you have the opportunity to choose where you are treated for certain conditions according to your needs. You might for example, want to go to a surgery that is a shorter walk, or one that has shorter waiting times.
All providers of the services on offer meet NHS quality standards and remain free to patients, who are referred according to clinical need in line with the NHS Constitution. Each provider must be registered with NHS regulators Monitor and the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and run services to standard NHS contracts and specifications.
Derby Road and our sister practice Grange Farm Medical Centre both offer the following PCPO services:
