Dedicated Diabetic Clinic

At Ross Medical we provide a dedicated diabetic clinic for all our patients with Diabetes Mellitus.

We also have a visiting diabetic nurse specialist who reviews patients within Ross Medical Practice and liaises with our local endocrinologist.

 

We use a holistic approach to diabetes and offer advice about medications, diet and exercise.

 

We work with our local dietetics team and encourage all patients to attend the X-pert programme (about diet and diabetes)  and their diabetic retinopathy screening.


If you are worried about diabetes, please make an appointment with a doctor or nurse to discuss this and organise blood tests if necessary.

    Spirometry and Lung Function Assessment

    We are delighted to offer spirometry to all our patients who require it. 

    Spirometry is a common test used to assess how well your lungs work by measuring how much air you inhale, how much you exhale and how quickly you exhale. Spirometry is used to diagnose asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other conditions that affect breathing. It is a vital tool in general practice.


    Please make an appointment with one of our doctors if you feel you would be a candidate for spirometry and bring your inhalers with you. If they recommend it, they will book a double appointment with one of the practice nurses to perform spirometry.

        Sexual Health Screening

        Sexual health is an important part of overall health.

        It means in the first place the absence of disease and infections but also covers well-being, the ability to control fertility and to have children and the ability to enjoy fulfilling relationships free from discrimination. 

        At Ross Medical we provide empathetic, confidential and discrete screening for sexually transmitted diseases. We liaise with microbiology and Genito-Urinary Medicine clinics to ensure the highest standard of care for our patients.

         

        Please make an appointment with one of our doctors if you are concerned about sexually transmitted disease. Dr Brenda Moran has a special interest in Sexual Health.
