LONG TERM CONDITION REVIEWS- INVITATIONS IN THE MONTH OF YOUR BIRTH-
If you normally have a review of your long term condition such as Diabetes, Asthma, COPD or a heart condition you will now be sent a review invitation letter in the month of your birth. The Clinical Commissioning Group in Suffolk have provided all GP practices systems to allow them to follow ‘a month of birth’ recall system. It is nationally recognised that a ‘month of birth’ recall system is a good way to ensure that every patient with a long term condition is invited to an annual review. Over the last year some patients understandably have chosen not to attend the practice for their review so have fallen outside their normal review period. It therefore especially makes sense to transition to a new system now, so patients know when they will receive their next review invitation. During this first transitional year it may mean that patients have a longer or shorter interval between their reviews. The nurse may feel that you should be seen more frequently than annually and they will discuss this with you and ask you to make more frequent appointments. Please wait for your review invitation letter. Thank you for your help and bearing with us during this transitional time.

Every patient is allocated a 'NAMED GP'. If you have 'repeat medication' your repeat prescription slip will show your 'named accountable GP'. We ensure that any letters that you receive from the practice indicate your 'named GP'. All new patients and those over 75 will have been contacted to inform them of their 'named GP'. Any patients that do not know their 'named GP' are welcome to ask at reception when visiting or telephoning the practice
