Clinics We Offer

Chronic Disease Management Clinics

These are run by the practice nurses with the assistance of our healthcare assistant. They cover chronic diseases which require regular monitoring such as diabetes, asthma and respiratory problems, heart problems, high blood pressure and thyroid disorders.

Patients are contacted at regular intervals (usually yearly in the month of birth) by text and invited to attend for a review of their condition. For example, those with diabetes will first attend the healthcare assistant to have bloods and a basic health check and then be seen by a practice nurse two weeks later for the results.

Ante Natal Checks

Pregnant patients are cared for routinely within the Health Centre by the visiting Larch Team of midwives from Forth Valley Royal Infirmary as part of a shared care plan with the practice. Six weeks post natal the patient is advised to attend for a routine check by a doctor.

Baby Clinic

Appointments are currently being run in alignment with the day of the baby's immunisations to minimise the number of visits having to be made to the practice. We will send out a letter to the parents to ask that you contact us when your immunisation appointment has been received and we will try our best to align your appointments.
