Long term conditions

We have recently had an overhaul of how we manage patients with long term conditions such as diabetes, asthma, COPD, hypertension, to name a few. We think that our new approach will benefit patients and give them a clear plan of how we will help them manage their condition through the year.

How it works

Here are some of the changes you may notice if you have a long term condition:

  1. You will be invited for an appointment, in your birthday month, with our Healthcare Assistant for a face to face check which may include blood tests, blood pressure check and other physical checks related to your condition.
  2. The Healthcare Assistant will book your 2nd appointment if needed with a Practice Nurse who specializes in your condition.
  3. Following all your checks, our Pharmacy Team will complete a structured medication review to ensure that your medication is optimized and authorized for repeats to be issued until your next review.
  4. If you are overdue for a review we may contact you before your birthday month

What do I do once I have received my invite?

Once you have received your invite to book in for your long term condition review, please get in touch with our Reception Team to book your appointment.
