We have introduced a new Annual Birthday Medical Review for our patients that have one or more Long Term Conditions.
How we will do this:
You may find that the period between your last review and your next review is more, or less, than 12 months as this will enable us at the Surgery to transition over to our Annual Birthday Medical Review for 2022/2023.
Whilst we do encourage patient to attend Annual Birthday Medical Reviews, if you can’t, or don’t want to attend your review, we would be grateful if you could notify the Surgery so that we do not send you anymore reminders until the following year.
What is a Long-Term Condition?
A long-term condition includes illnesses such as:
These conditions require an annual review to ensure that the condition is being managed appropriately (by you the patient and also by us as your healthcare provider), identify any problems or concerns and ensure patients are confident to deal with their condition between review.
How does the process work?
Patients with one or more long term condition will be invited for their Annual Birthday Medical Review within the month of their birthday. If this is the case, all relevant conditions will be reviewed within the one annual review process. This ensures that you are only attending the Surgery when you need to and that we are not asking you to attend the Surgery unnecessarily. You will receive a letter or SMS message which explains what to do next.
Some conditions may require an interim review e.g. at six months, and if so, this will be discussed at your Annual Birthday Medical Review.
As this is a new process, we would appreciate any feedback on how the system works for you.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
How to book?
Patients will be contacted in the month prior to their birthday to get booked in for their Annual Birthday Medical Review. This may involve coming to the Surgery beforehand to complete relevant blood tests and hand in urine tests to ensure results are back in time for your review with our Healthcare Assistants.
If you have not been contacted and feel as though you should have been, then please contact the Surgery on 01268 798581.
