If you are taking medication for conditions such as:
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease (including angina and heart attacks)
- Stroke/ mini stroke (TIA)
- Mental illness
- Chronic bronchitis/COPD
then we will ask you to come in for regular reviews once or twice a year.
Please let the receptionists know if you are making an appointment for a review of your illness and it will be made with the appropriate nurse or doctor.
If blood tests are due then we will usually send a form for a blood test before your review and ask you to make an appointment with a doctor or nurse one week later. The aim is to manage your disease to prevent any long term damage.
It is not good enough to only come for your blood tests- you also need to be reviewed by a doctor or one of our nurses to discuss the results of the blood tests.
If you do not attend for reviews then we may reduce your quantity of medication until we see you.
