Long Term Conditions and Medication Reviews

The need to improve the treatment and management of long-term conditions is the most important challenge facing the NHS. Improving care for people with long-term conditions must involve a shift away from a reactive, disease-focused, fragmented model of care towards one that is more proactive, holistic and preventive, in which people with long-term conditions are encouraged to play a central role in managing their own care.

In response to this, we use a system for calling in our patients for annual reviews of their long term conditions. The system will group all your appointments into one appointment with the Healthcare Assistant for different tests and examinations. The results will then be sent to your GP for review, should the GP feel you need to see either a Specialist Nurse or themselves this will then be arranged. You may not require to always be required to come in for a second appointment as your condition may be stable/well controlled.

You will be called each year the month of your date of birth. The appointment times will vary dependant on your long term condition.

Should you not book an appointment after your first invitation you will be sent another invite one month later.  Should you not respond to this, we will assume you do not wish attend this appointment and we may make no further contact until the following year.
