If you have been diagnosed with a severe mental health problem, then it is important that we see you annually to check up on your physical health. Please book an appointment with our nursing team. During this appointment we will discuss health lifestyle choices and give advice if needed on stopping smoking, weight management and exercise and alcohol consumption. We will check that you are up to date with any screening that is due, such as cervical cytology (smear test) and breast screening. We will check your height, weight and blood pressure. We may need to take a blood sample from you and sometimes an ECG. Please also bring a fresh sample of urine with you to this appointment.
Please also be aware that you can book appointments with Amy, our Mental Health Nurse, if you wish to discuss your mental health needs with someone. We have more information about the Mental Health services we offer on the website, or you can speak with one of our reception team.
