Medical Reviews

Our process for inviting people for regular health checks

For people who have a chronic disease - we will get in touch with them when their regular health checks are due. This process works on diary dates that are in peoples records. Once somebody has had their annual review - the practice nurses / healthcare assistants will change the persons diary dates to the following year.

Three letters are sent at regular intervals until the diary date has been changed to when the next review is due. This sometimes means that people may receive a further reminder letter about their review - even if they have an appointment already booked.

For people who have received 3 reminder letters and who have not been for their review, if they are taking medication, the clinicians may decide to reduce the amount of medication provided until their review has taken place. This is so that clinicians can ensure that the medication that they are prescribing is still right for that persons needs.

We will also note in that patients record that they have chosen not to have their health check. We will also change their health check diary date to the following year and will then get in touch again in advance of the rescheduled date.
