CHD clinics are held regularly by our Practice Nurse Bridget. They enable the practice to monitor patients who have heart disease.
Patients are seen annually by Bridget, who will arrange an ECG & blood tests to check for diabetes, cholesterol & kidney function.
During the clinic, she will check their blood pressure and discuss lifestyle and any problems or concerns that they may have.
It is very important for patients with CHD to attend these clinics as CHD is still the biggest causes of death in this country.
