PATIENT BIRTHDAYS

As of 2017 the practice has introduced  ‘Patient Birthday Annual Reviews’, for all those patients with either, Asthma, CHD, COPD, Diabetes, Hypertension and Hypothyroidism.

During the month of your birthday please expect a letter inviting you to make an appointment with the relevant clinician in order to review your condition.

You will be asked the following :

Asthma : Book an appointment with the Asthma Nurse. Please bring your asthma medication.

CHD : Book an appointment with the CHD Practice Nurse.  Within your letter you will receive a fasting blood test form.  Please ensure that you have the blood test at least 10 days prior to your appointment.  When attending your appointment please bring a urine sample.  Please label the bottle with your full name date of birth and NHS or hospital number, both of which can be found on your blood test form.  Urine Sample bottles are available at the surgery.

COPD : Book an appointment with the COPD Nurse.  Please bring your inhalers and have two puffs of your Ventolin (blue reliever) inhaler about 1-2 hours before your appointment.

Please label the urine test bottle with your full name date of birth and NHS or hospital number, both of which can be found on your blood test form.
