We are recalling our patients with a ‘Chronic Disease’ based on their month of birth. This may vary from patient to patient depending on when you last attended for your annual review. We would encourage you to attend these reviews.
You may receive two text message invitations one at the beginning of the month on your birthday month and the second invitation at the end of the birthday month, if you fall in to one of the following categories:
- Chronic Heart Disease
- Chronic Kidney Disease
- Heart Failure
- Peripheral Arterial Disease
- Pre-diabetic (borderline diabetics)
We will recall you with a separate letter if you are in one of these groups:
- Learning Disability
- Mental Health
You have the option to decline a review, but you will receive a second invitation before you are removed from recall for that year. If you wish to be removed from the recall system sooner, you will need to discuss with a clinician first.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU ATTEND FOR AN ANNUAL REVIEW OF YOUR CONDITION SO WE WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU ATTEND THESE APPOINTMENTS AND NOT DECLINE.
If you feel you do not have any of the above conditions, please let us know so we can review your medical records. Sometimes information that comes over from a previous practice may not match up correctly onto our system.
It is important to keep us informed of any up-to-date contact details as the recall invitations may go out by text on GP Connect or AccuRx text messaging service. If you do not wish to receive correspondence in this way, please let us know as we can update your records to stop this.
Thank you for your help and we hope this ensures all patients have a regular yearly review regarding their Chronic Disease and any review any medications you may be taking for this condition. This review may require you to have blood tests taken and you can also discuss any concerns you have.
You are welcome to a bring a carer with you to these appointments.
