Company description
NHS Health Check is a new National program that offers checks to patients between the ages of 40 and 74, once every five years. The purpose of this is to assess the risk of you developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes or kidney disease and offer advice, help and support about what you can do to reduce the risks. The appointment should last no longer than 30 mins and will be based on straightforward tests and questions. NHS Direct Patient Decision Aids (PDAs) are designed to help patients make difficult decisions about their treatments and medical tests. They are used when there is no clinical evidence to suggest that one treatment is better than another and patients need help in deciding which option will be best for them. Cervical screening is a method of preventing cervical cancer by detecting abnormal cells in the cervix (lower part of the womb).
Cervical screening is not a test for cancer, but it is a test to check the health of the cervix. Most women's test results show that everything is normal. But for one in 20 women, the test will show some changes in the cells of the cervix. Most of these changes will not lead to cervical cancer and the cells will go back to normal on their own. In some cases, the abnormal cells need to be treated to prevent them becoming a problem later.
Since September 2008 there has been a national programme to vaccinate girls aged 12-13 against human papilloma virus (HPV). There is also a three-year catch up campaign that will offer the HPV vaccine (also known as the cervical cancer jab) to 13-18 year old girls. The programme is delivered largely through secondary schools, and consists of three injections that are given over a six-month period. In the UK, more than 1.4 million doses have been given since the vaccination programme started.

I know that it will be mainly people who have negative experiences who write these comments so bear this in mind..However this surgery treats you like a patient and not a person.... Find a better place if you can ...
