When you are diagnosed with a long-term condition, we will add you to our register for that specific condition.
Every year you will be sent an invitation for a review to help you control your condition.
You will be asked to complete a questionnaire and maybe book a blood test or monitor your blood pressure for 7 days
Please note that due to COVID, some of these reviews were suspended throughout 2020-2021
From the 1st April 2021, we will send out invitations to patients around the month of their birth and a reminder one month later for the long-term conditions below:
Please ensure you provide us with your height, weight, blood pressure, smoking and alcohol status for all reviews as this will not be done during a blood test appointment.

If you do not wish to have an annual review for one or more long-term conditions, please let us know so we can mark your record that you have declined your health review. You will be invited again the following year in your birth month.
If we do not hear from you after your 2nd invitation, we will assume you have declined your annual review(s).
