If you have certain long-term conditions (conditions which impact over a long period of time such as diabetes and heart diseases), you will be offered and encouraged to attend a Yearly Health Check to better care for your health. We will work with you to improve your health by considering what matters to you. We will consider your individual needs and preferences as well as best practice for your long-term condition. Our goals are that patients with long term conditions manage their health with confidence, reduce the risk of being admitted to hospital, and have a better quality of life.
If this is for you, we will contact you via text, phone call, or letter to organise your appointments. We will contact patients over the year so please do not worry if you do not hear from us right away. If you would like more information, please visit our [insert practice website here].
Who is this for?
Initially, we will cover nine long-term conditions:
- Cardiovascular disease (for example, strokes, health failure, ischaemic heart disease, and peripheral artery disease)
- Hypertension (High blood pressure)
- Hyperlipidaemia (High cholesterol)
- Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
- Atrial fibrillation
- Chronic kidney disease
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
In the future, we will look to expand this to cover more long-term conditions.
