Flu Clinics 2018

5 Sept 2018

Our annual flu vaccinations clinics will be running from October 2018.  Eligible patients will receive a postal invitation in the next 2 weeks.

Cardiac Event Monitoring

20 May 2018

We now offer Cardiac Event Monitoring in the Practice.  This is performed using a heart rhythm monitoring device worn for 24-72 hours.  It is used to diagnose the cause of palpitations and other symptoms that may be due to a heart rhythm abnormality.  Having our own Cardiac Event Monitor allows us to offer this service within the practice without having to make a referral to the cardiology service.  This will allow quicker investigation for patients with palpitations and other symptoms while also taking pressure off the cardiology service so that patients with other problems can be seen more quickly.  If you have palpitations please start by making an appointment with a GP who will arrange the appropriate investigations.

Sexual Health Screening

16 May 2018

We now offer asymptomatic sexual health screening at Silverbirch.  This is available for any patient who doesn't have symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection but would like a sexual health check up to put their mind at ease.  It is beneficial to diagnose and treat sexual health infections early.  The sexual health screen includes tests for Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, HIV and Syphillis.  If you would like sexual health screening please make an appointment with Nurse McVea.
