Well Person

These check-ups are for adults who may not have seen their doctor for several years. Check if you need to be seen by phoning Pendeen Surgery on 01989 763535 and make an appointment for a Well Person clinic with a Practice Nurse.

The check includes relevant family and personal medical history, life-style enquiry, blood pressure, height and weight (to work out BMI – Body Mass Index), urine analysis (bring a sample). A blood sample for cholesterol may be taken if the check-up suggests it is necessary.

A similar check-up is offered to all patients new to Pendeen Surgery – a New Patient health Check. The practice Nurse will give health advice based on the check-up.
