Chronic Disease Management

Our Practice Nursing team run weekly clinics for all management of chronic disease such as Coronary Heart Disease, Diabetes, Hypertension, Stroke, Chest problems and Epilepsy. Patients known to have any of these problems will be invited by letter with an appointment to attend for review. It is important that you attend for this appointment so that the nurses can ensure you are receiving the best possible treatment for your condition. It is equally important to attend even if you are experiencing no current problems. By having a review the nurses can ensure that you continue to receive the best treatment for your condition.

If you do not respond to your invitation reminders will be sent and our reception team will endeavour to contact you by phone. If for any reason you do not wish to attend please confirm in writing that you do not want to have review.
