We are recalling our patients with a ‘Chronic Disease’ based on their month of birth. This may vary from patient to patient depending on when you last attended for your annual review. We would encourage you to attend these reviews.
You may receive one of these combined letters from us if you fall in to one of the following categories:
This is a CLINIC B letter:
- Chronic Heart Disease
- Heart Failure
- Peripheral Arterial Disease
- Pre-diabetic (borderline diabetics)
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
This is a CLINIC A letter (Respiratory):
We will recall you with a separate letter if you are in one of these groups:
- Learning Disability
- Mental Health
You have the option to decline a review but you will receive a second letter before you are removed from recall. If you wish to be removed from the recall system sooner you will need to discuss with a clinician first.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU ATTEND FOR AN ANNUAL REVIEW OF YOUR CONDITION SO WE WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU ATTEND THESE APPOINTMENTS AND NOT DECLINE.
If you feel you do not have the condition stated on the letter please let us know so we can check you medical records. Sometimes information that comes over from a previous practice may not match up correctly on our system.
It is important to keep us informed of any up to date contact details as the second reminders may go out by text or email via our MJOG on-line system or AccuRx text messaging service. If you do not wish to receive correspondence this way please let us know as we can update your records to stop this.
Thank you for your help with this and we hope this ensures all patients have a regular yearly check ups at least once a year regarding their Chronic Disease and any review any medications you may be taking because of this condition. This review may require you to have blood tests taken and you can also discuss any concerns you have.
You are welcome to a bring a carer with you to these appointments.
