Annual Birthday Health Check

Chronic Disease Management

If you have a long-term condition such as diabetes, asthma, or chronic obstructive airways disease (COPD), you will receive an invitation, either by text or letter, to book your annual review, with the Practice, during your birthday month.

Your review will include a health check and advice specific to your condition. A blood test may be required. Please provide a urine specimen and hand to your nurse at your appointment – bottles are available in our toilets.

Our nursing team will be involved in the annual review process in the following areas:

  • Asthma: this includes a review of asthma control including any exacerbations, inhaler technique and formulation of a plan for ongoing treatment according to the latest guidelines.
  • COPD: this includes a review of current symptoms and exacerbations, inhaler technique and a discussion about any additional treatments that may be helpful to you including pulmonary rehabilitation.
  • Diabetes: this includes the annual foot check, blood pressure, blood and urine tests and a discussion about lifestyle issues such as diet and exercise that might help you optimise your diabetes control. You will be booked in for a GP review around a week later; your results will be discussed, drug treatments adjusted where necessary and a plan of action made.

You may find that the period from your last review is less than 12 months as we transition to annual birthday month reviews over 2023/24. If you have any concerns before or after your annual review, please contact us to request a consultation.
