Changing the way we invite patients in for their yearly health checks

Posted by: Monifa - Posted on:

From the 1st of April 2022 we are changing the way we invite patients in for their yearly health checks.

All patients will now be invited for their checks to take place on their birth month.

For example, if your birthday is 16 June and you have a mobile number or email address in your records you will receive a text or email message a couple of weeks before to make an appointment with the nurse.

If you suffer from more than one chronic disease i.e., diabetes, hypertension, asthma etc, you will have all the checks carried out at the same appointments. Although this will entail a longer appointment it will reduce the number of times you need to come to the practice throughout the year.

Whilst this invite system is being set up, it may mean some of your yearly checks may be delayed. We ask all patients if you have any issues regarding your health to please contact the surgery and not to wait for the invite.

Please make sure we have your up-to-date mobile number and email address and inform the practice if this changes in the future.
