Birthday Annual Review

From April 2014 we will be changing the way we manage patients with long term health conditions.      Patients who have conditions such as diabetes, asthma, COPD, hypothyroidism, cardiovascular disease or high blood pressure will have a single review for all their long term medical problems each year in the month of their birthday .  This will reduce the number of visits patients have to make to have their long term conditions monitored which we hope will be much more convenient.  We would encourage you to contact the practice around the time of your birthday to book a Birthday Review  appointment if this applies to you.

Transferring from the old system to a birthday review system is going to be challenging and may result in some patients being seen earlier or later than they initially expected.  The doctors would like to thank all their patients for their support whilst we are implementing these changes

 

 

Getting the Most From Your Doctor

Before your consultation it is often helpful to think about what you want to tell the Doctor or Nurse. This should mean that when you are speaking to them you remember to tell them everything you are worried about or feel is relevant to help the doctor help you.  The type of questions you may wish to think about are:-

What are you really worried about?

What symptoms do you want to tell the doctor about?

Are you clear what you want from your Doctor? Perhaps a diagnosis, treatment, referral or just advice.


The attached Patient Information Leaflet, which is also available to pick up in the waiting area has been developed to help patients make best use of the their appointment.  Their is space within the leaflet to write down questions you may wish to ask the Doctor.
