Health Checks can be performed on request and are usually undertaken by the practice nurses. Apart from the usual examination expected, Lister Medical Centre has a cholesterol testing machine, a spirometer (for the investigation of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and a 24 hour sphygmomanometer (blood pressure machine), for the investigation of raised blood pressure.
These are offered to all new registrations. At present, these checks are provided by our health care assistants.
