Stroke or Transient Ischaemic Attack

Every year there are approximately 152,000 strokes in the UK. That’s one stroke every five minutes. Most people affected are over 65, but anyone can have a stroke, including children and even babies.

Stroke changes lives. It can have a huge effect on you and your family. You will most likely want to know as much as you can about what practical, emotional and financial support is available.

Hyperthyroidism

The Practice provides care for this chronic condition. 

An overactive thyroid, also known as hyperthyroidism, is where the thyroid gland produces too much of the thyroid hormones. The thyroid is found at the front of the neck. It produces hormones that affect things such as your heart rate and body temperature. Extra levels of these hormones can cause unpleasant and potentially serious problems that may require treatment. An overactive thyroid can affect anyone, but it’s about 10 times more common in women than men and it typically starts between 20 and 40 years of age.
