HOUSE OF CARE APPROACH TO ANNUAL REVIEW

The practice are introducing a new model of delivering annual reviews to patients with chronic disease.  This model has been introduced across the UK and involves a two appointment process.  Measurements will be gathered by our Health Care Assistant and the results will be sent to the patient before the second appointment with the Nurse.  We will role this approach out over the next year commencing with our diabetic patients.  Please note you will be invited to attend for this new style of annual review by letter as we have done in the past.  More information on this approach can be found at:
