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 and/or monitor your blood pressure for 7 days
We will send out invitations via SMS, email and post to patients around the month of their birth and a reminder three months 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.
What do I need to do?
If you do not have the ability to complete the questionnaire online, please collect one from Reception. Alternatively please contact us on 01252 545078 after 11am Monday to Friday, and our Recall Team will send you a paper copy via the post.
If you are diabetic, please ensure you have a supply of sample bottles at home so you can provide us with a urine sample (first catch of the day)
If you do not have your own home BP machine, please come and use the self-service machine at the Surgery. Alternatively your local pharmacy may offer a BP service but it may be chargeable.
You can download a home blood pressure diary from our website which explains how to monitor your BP: https://voyagerfamilyhealth.co.uk/health-questionnaires/
*Please note that our Clinicians are unable to complete your review(s) without the necessary blood test results, BP readings and your completed questionnaire. *
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).
