All patients with a long term condition (such as, but not limited to, hypertension, epilepsy, diabetes, asthma, COPD, CKD, heart disease etc.) are now invited to attend the practice for an annual review within their birthday month.
Instead of being called in for a number of reviews separately, this should reduce the number of appointments a patient has to attend by combining all the reviews into one longer appointment. With birthday reviews taking place in the month of a patients’ birthday, this should also make it easier for patients to remember when they are due for their main review.
All patients will receive a letter reminding them nearer to the time of their review date.
