Patient's are invited annually to come in for medication reviews with their doctor if they are on repeat medication. This review date is stated on the repeat medication slip.
Individuals which suffer from long term health conditions such as asthma or diabetes may have different review dates with nurses opposed to their doctors as they could require different treatment plans.
These agreements are patient specific and are a joint decision between the doctor/nurse and the patient.
Within the surgery we have both an asthma / respiratory nurse and a diabetic nurse in order to cater for all patients.
- Charlotte Merrifield, lead practice nurse cares specifically for our asthmatic and COPD patients.
- Jane Fox, practice nurse cares for our diabetic patients.
If your symptoms are deteriorating or you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to make an appointment with either a nurse which specialises in the condition or a doctor here at the surgery.
