Overview

surgery building from outside

Welcome to Dr Glencross Surgery. We are conveniently located close to the town centre near Greenhead Park and close to several bus stops. We are a small surgery, which means we can provide our patients with a more personal service, whilst maintaining a high-quality healthcare practice. Our doctors, nurses and all our other staff are dedicated to offering a professional but friendly service. This NHS.uk listing, along with our own surgery website, will help us to keep all our patients up to date with news and information about our practice. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations, contraception and STD testing, as well as well-person check-ups. We also offer private vaccinations, HGV/PSV/Boxing and other medical examinations and reports at very reasonable prices. 

We now offer online booking, prescription requests and access to your medical record including test results through SystmOnline which you can access from the link below and to the right or via our website www.glencrosssurgery.nhs.uk.

All patients have been allocated a named GP - Dr Glencross - who is responsible for our patients’ overall care at the practice.

February 2018 Cholesterol Campaign

https://heartuk.org.uk/health-and-high-cholesterol

What is cholesterol and and where does cholesterol comes from?

Cholesterol is a waxy substance which is made in the body by the liver but is also found in some foods. It plays a vital role in how every cell works and is also needed to make Vitamin D, some hormones and bile for digestion. However, too much cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of getting heart and circulatory diseases.

Understanding HDL-cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol

Cholesterol is carried in the blood attached to proteins called lipoproteins. There are two main forms, LDL (low density lipoprotein) and HDL (high density lipoprotein). LDL cholesterol is often referred to as "bad cholesterol" because too much is unhealthy. HDL is often referred to as “good cholesterol” because it is protective. Knowing your levels of these can help explain your risk of heart disease. Your doctor should be able to tell you your levels of “good” and “bad” cholesterol.  You can find out what to expect from your doctor by checking out our Patient's Charter. 

Cholesterol in our diets

Most of our cholesterol is made by the liver, but we get some from our diet as well. HEART UK has lots of information and resources about diet, foods and cholesterol.  Take a look at our page on Low Cholesterol Diets & High Cholesterol Foods and for ideas for cholesterol-busting foods, then take a look at our Six Super Foods to Help Lower Cholesterol and our Ultimate Cholesterol Lowering Plan (UCLP©).

HEART UK's Cholesterol Helpline

If you looking for free, impartial, friendly and informative advice on cholesterol, then get in touch with our Cholesterol Helpline.    Whether your concern is about yourself or someone you care about, we're here to help you with advice and information from specialist cardiac nurses and dietitians.
