Invited by the Practice
The practice has a duty of care to review long term conditions at least once a year. We invite patients throughout the year by text message to book online via your online service provider i.e. NHS App or patient access.
These appointments are specifically for reviews and should not be booked for anything but the review you have been invited for.
If you have a clinical issue please do not wait until your appointment to bring this up as the clinician you are booked with may not be able to deal with it. Please submit an online consultation and it will be reviewed by a GP and a decision can be made in a timely manner.
The practice reviews the booked appointments online and will cancel any appointments that are not appropriate. You will receive a text message if this happens and what to do next.
