Long Term Conditions

Annual health checks for people with a diagnosed problem

If you have one of the following conditions then you will be invited for an annual health check.

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Kidney disease
  • Heart disease
  • Asthma
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Learning disabilities
  • Dementia
  • Severe mental health problems

We invite all people for their annual health check in the same month as their birthday. You may need a blood test before the appointment, in which case the invite will say this. Some conditions are managed bi-annually – so you may be asked to come in twice a year.

Appointment codes

You will receive a letter from the practice when your long term condition review is due.

The letter will contain a booking code. Please find below a chart which shows you what that booking code will entail.
