Birthday Recalls for Chronic Disease Management

From March 2023 we introduced a new recall system to Arran Medical Group to invite patients with Chronic disease/Long term illness annually during their birthday month.

Long term condition such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • Hypertension
  • Chronic Heart Disease
  • Hyperthyroid
  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Epilepsy
  • Mental health
  • Dementia

Annual health check consists of two essential appointments:

1.       First Appointment
• With: Community Treatment and Care Nurse
• Includes: Blood test and basic health check (Blood pressure, height and weight)
• Duration: Approximately 20 minutes

2.       Second Appointment (Telephone review)
• With: Practice Nurse
• Purpose: Reviewing your results, addressing any concerns and providing guidance on managing your health
• Scheduling: Coordinate this appointment at the time of your first visit with our reception staff.

We have introduced this new system to help make it easier for our patients to know when they are due their review, and for the practice staff to identify when a patient’s review is due.
We would encourage our patients to schedule this appointment annually.

Please note, some reviews occur every 6 months. If this is the case, one review will be during your birthday month and other will be 6 months later.

Please be assured that if you have multiple conditions, these will all be reviewed in the fewest number of appointments possible.
If you feel you need to be seen before your review please do not hesitate to get in touch with the practice.

As always, for any concerns or problems you have at any time, please call the practice to make an appointment with the most appropriate clinician.
