Birthday Month Reviews.
For the last 10 years we have been running a popular recall system for all patients with high blood pressure, diabetes and other risks of heart problems and strokes which is based on the month in which you are born. This provides a memorable prompt as to when your next review is due and allows us to spread our workload through the year.
If for example your birthday is in April, you will be called each April for a blood pressure check, along with all other relevant blood tests. We will also review lifestyle factors which could modify your risk and give appropriate advice.
Your usual doctor will review all these results and be in touch with you if anything needs adjusting. The doctor will approve your medication and book your next recall at 6 or 12 months as necessary.
