- NHS Health Checks
The NHS Health Check programme aims to help prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and certain types of dementia. Everyone between the ages of 40 and 74, who has not already been diagnosed with one of these conditions or have certain risk factors, will be invited (once every five years) to have a check to assess their risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes and will be given support and advice to help them reduce or manage that risk. Think of the NHS Health Check as a midlife free MOT.

Specialist Women’s Clinic
Dr Leonard is accredited to provide specialist advice for Gynaecology problems, including family planning, insertion and removal of IUD (coil), the menopause and HRT.
Antenatal Care and Postnatal Care
Maternity online self-referral process
King’s Maternity Unit would like to see women as early as possible in their pregnancy so we can plan their care. It is also important that all necessary blood tests are done on time so further tests, if required will not be delayed. This is especially important with sickle cell and thalassaemia screening were an early diagnosis improves early partner testing rates and allows for earlier counselling and pre-natal diagnosis for at risk couples.
You do not have to wait to see a GP before as you can self-refer directly to the service.
Referrals will be sent directly to the antenatal administrators who will respond within 5 working days. They aim to see women for their booking appointment before they are 10 weeks pregnant.
Patients can also book a routine appointment with one of our doctors to be referred to the hospital for antenatal care.
Postnatal Appointments and Baby Checks
On receipt of a patient’s discharge summary, the Practice invites mothers in for their postnatal check up with Dr Pooja Agarwal. We will also offer an appointment for baby’s 6-week check at the same time. Baby will be booked for his/her first immunisations with a nurse after the baby check.
