Annual Health Reviews
Having a single annual review is the quickest and most convenient way of monitoring long-term conditions. Without regular check-ups, conditions can worsen and complications might arise that damage your health. Proactive management of long-term conditions can alleviate symptoms and let you lead as happy and healthy a life as possible.
To ensure that patients with long-term conditions only have to attend the Practice when necessary, we now invite these patients to attend the Practice for a single annual review in the month of their birth.
During one appointment, a thorough review of all recorded conditions will be undertaken. Depending on the individual case this may require initial blood and urine tests followed by a face-to-face review with one of our practice nursing team. In some circumstances a further face-to-face chat with a GP may also be necessary.
You will receive a written invitation in advance of the planned review to allow time to book the necessary appointments. The letter should include a blood test form if one is required, please bring this with you to your appointment.
The conditions for which annual reviews are undertaken include:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Atrial fibrillation
- Kidney disease
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases (COPD)
- Thyroid problems
- Rheumatoid arthritis
If you feel you are due for an annual review for any of the above conditions but have not been invited to the Practice in your birth month please contact us.
