Those of you who have regular repeat medication for coronary heart disease, asthma, diabetes, thyroid problems or any other chronic diseases know that you will need an annual review - this being YOUR BIRTH MONTH.
Your medication review date (i.e during your BIRTH MONTH) is YOUR REMINDER that you need to make an appointment to come and see one of our Health Care Assistants for annual checks which also may include a blood test. Our Admin team will contact you the month prior to your birth month with the appointment details if you have not made this vital appointment.
Simple repeat medications, such as those for skin conditions will not require you to come in for an appointment and these requests will continue to be checked by the GPs and re- authorised if appropriate.
Once all the results are back your Doctor will study the results and hopefully sign you off for another year! If not - then the Nursing team will be in touch with you and invite you in either for further tests or to see one of our Doctors.
