Let us make sure that “You are alright”
Men have a tendency to deny feeling unwell or shrug it off with that well-worn phrase ‘I’ll be alright’. The fact is that it may often not be alright. Like women, men too have specific health needs that require care and attention. Our doctors can help guide you towards a healthier lifestyle and teach you how to avoid health problems that typically affect men, such as High blood pressure, Heart conditions, Weight management, Prostate concerns, Urinary problems, Sexual dysfunction etc
Speak to your GP if you’re struggling to cope, feeling low or anxious. Our GPs can assess your condition and may provide therapy and treatment. Our GPs also support people with dependence or addiction problems.
We have 4Cyte pathology on site. Our practice nurse will take blood samples and perform other pathology tests for you , like OGTT for diagnosis of diabetes/gestational diabetes, when recommended by the doctor. A courier service takes those samples to the main laboratory four times a day , where the tests are performed and reported by the qualified pathologists and hematologists. An urgent courier can also be arranged in case your test needs to be done urgently.
