Your Long Term Condition Monitoring

Month of Birth Annual Checks for your Long Term Conditions

The Practice has, this year, introduced a month of birth recall system. This means, for example, if your birthday falls in March, you will need to make an appointment every March, in order for us to check that your health is being well managed.  A few examples of conditions which we monitor are as follows:-

Asthma – annual check, checking how you manage your asthma and whether it affects the quality of life, the effectiveness of your inhaler technique and inhalers.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) – annual check to monitor your lung function, including the same checks as for Asthma.

Stroke / Chronic Kidney Disease/ Heart Disease – Annual blood tests and blood pressure checks to help review the function of your organs including kidneys, liver and heart – this helps us determine if your treatment regime may need changing.

Diabetes – as above but to include a comprehensive check of your feet. The hospital also checks your eyes annually.

Thyroid Disease – annual blood tests to ensure that your thyroid medicine is effective or needs to be adjusted.

These are examples of just a few areas which we monitor in order to help us to understand if your medicines are working properly. The information gathered at these appointments also assists us in making decisions about your care.

 

Please remember to book your annual appointment in the month of your birth.

 

Thank you
