AHEAD Project- Update 2018.
Darwen Healthcare has been successful in it's AHEAD Project proactively encouraging men aged 16 -65 to attend for a health check or to attend their annual chronic disease review. Although the project ends March 18 the process will continue in the practice. If invited please take up the offer of a health check. During the past 12 months 407 men have attended a check up having previously not attended. This has seen the Nursing Team shortlisted for the Burdett 2018 Nursing Team Awards - Men's Health.
Our Receptionists will give you details of the above clinics upon request.
The Practice also offers some medical services, which are not available on the NHS, e.g. HGV medicals and insurance medicals. The doctors charge a fee for these services. The receptionists will advise you in advance if you request a service for which there is a fee (current fees are also displayed in reception).
Here's a checklist of the vaccines that are routinely offered to everyone in the UK free of charge on the NHS and the ages at which they should ideally be given.
If you're not sure whether you or your child have had all your routine vaccinations, please ring our receptionists who will find out for you. It may be possible to catch up later in life.
Try to have your vaccinations delivered on time to ensure protection. If you're not going to be able to get to the GP surgery when a vaccination is due, let us know, as it may be possible to arrange to have the vaccination at a different location.
Travel Vaccines at Darwen Healthcare
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you will need to book a 20 minute appointment with the practice nurse at least 6 weeks before travel . Please contact reception on 01254 226691 who will take details of your travel details and book the appointment for you. Not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS and therefore there are several local chemists and travel clinics who can also complete Travel Vaccinations. If you are travelling within 4 weeks and require travel vaccinations you will need to contact one of the local travel clinics/chemists as we cannot provide appointments for last minute travel vaccinations.
The following websites have lots of information about travel vaccinations and travel advice:
