Before Covid we were working towards using a birth-month recall system for most long-term conditions annual reviews. However, more recently we have had to prioritise appointments according to clinical need.
We are intending to start using the birth-month recall system from April 2022.
Most patients with one or more long-term conditions will receive an invitation just before their birthday month, asking them to book a review during their birth month. This should mean that patients need to attend fewer appointments as multiple tests and checks can be done at the same time.
We will also continue to use e-consults and online questionnaires to gather some information before your appointment with the nursing team.
