As part of our commitment to high quality care for all, the practice nurse invites patients in for an annual review of their long term conditions. These patients will be contacted by practice staff offering an annual Long Term Condition review. This will be done by mail, or if you prefer by text or email, if you have given your consent.
You can also telephone the practice yourself or attend our reception desk to make an appointment when the time is convenient to you.
Annual reviews give us the opportunity to see how you are coping with your condition and offer advice and support for your needs. While we strongly encourage patients to attend their annual reviews, if you can’t, or don’t want to attend, we would be grateful if you could notify us so that we do not send you any more reminders until the following year.
The various types of review appointments we offer are run by our practice nurses and are each structured differently, depending on the condition being reviewed, so it is important to request the right appointment type from the receptionist when you book.
Our nurses provide specialised appointments in the following: Diabetes, Asthma/COPD, Hypertension, Chronic Heart Disease, Stroke, CKD.
One of the many services we offer at Queensway is microsuction. We can provide microsuctioning for our own NHS patients or can see outside patients on a private self-referral basis.
What is microsuction?
Microsuction is a technique that uses a microscope to view the ear canal and uses suction to suck out the ear wax. This is a gentle and pain-free procedure. Microsuction differs to ear syringing in that ear syringing uses a jet of water to dislodge ear wax.
As with any procedure, there are some very uncommon risks. These risks include:
minor trauma to the ear canal or ear drum
perforation of the ear drum
These risks tend to be very small.
£30 for one ear
£50 for both
If you wish to self-refer to us for private microsuctioning please call our reception team on 01253 890219 who will be more than happy to help you.
