Cardiac Risk in the Young Screening - Saturday 10th September 2022
We are so pleased to announce that CRY are returning to our Ashgate surgery this September to carry out their free heart screening for patients between 14-35.
For over 20 years CRY has been screening young people aged 14 to 35. The programme developed by CRY has created the opportunity to save the young lives of those at risk that are asymptomatic, and appear to be "fit and healthy"
The screening programme is ran by Cardiac Risk in the Young charity (CRY) and is funded in memory of Bethany Mycroft who sadly lost her life at 14 due to an undiagnosed heart condition
The screening consists of a few medical questions and a really simple ECG which can diagnose most cardiac abnormalities. If you or someone you know is between 14-35 and hasn't had the screening before, we'd really encourage getting booked in to take advantage of this fantastic screening for some peace of mind.
The screening is taking place on Saturday 10th September. For more information or to book, please click here

Care Navigators – our call handlers and receptionists are trained to help navigate you to the most appropriate member of our health care team, its not always the Doctor you need to see! ALL of our staff abide by the same professional and confidentiality standards. They will ask you details about the reason you are requesting an appointment.

Our Specialist Mental Health Practitioners are skilled in managing all aspects of mental health and work closely with the GPs and the Community Mental Health Services.
Our Advanced Nurse Practitioners are a key part of the clinical team and take part in the “duty” or “on call” role, do home visits and nursing home ward rounds. ANPs are experienced nurses who have undertaken extensive further training in order to be able to manage a wide variety of clinical problems. We have great confidence in our ANPs and they are able to deal with many medical problems.
GPs – Our GPs form the core of the Primary Care Team. Many of our GPs have special clinical interests, however all are able to manage general medical and health problems.
