You may have seen recent news reports about a nasty Email scam that's circulating. We want to inform our patients that any Email from the National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE), informing you that you may have cancer is NOT an official communication from the Health Service.
PLEASE DELETE any such communication, immediately, and without opening any attachments.

HEALTH CHECKS for those aged 40 - 74
We're now offering free NHS Health Checks to those in the 40 to 74 year old age range, who don't have a history of chronic disease and are therefore less likely to visit the doctor or have a general health check in the normal course of events. The check, which is offered once every five years, is to assess your risk of developing heart disesase, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes and, if there are any warning signs, do something about it.
The check should take about 20 - 30 minutes and is based on straightforward questions and measurements such as age, sex, family history, height, weight and blood pressure, as well as a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol level.
Following the check, you wil receive free personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy.
As the check is once every five years, you may not receive an invitation straight away. However if you do receive an invitation it's worth investing a little time and effort in attending your appointment.
