Routine Monitoring Teststest_results8

The doctors in this practice monitor patients who are on certain medications or who have been diagnosed with an illness according to national guidelines where these exist.

Starting in June 2018 we will be calling our patients for their annual review checks in the month of their birth as this has been shown to help people remember when their usual health check is due.

If you are diabetic please know your feet check is part of the Annual Review by Nurse and you will also have a blood test every 6 months. Your eye tested by the specialist retinopathy service will be sent separately on an annual basis

If you collect you medication from the surgery there will be information printed on the label on your medication. These tell you how to take the medication. If you do not understand any of the abbreviations, which we have to use so that they fit on the label, please ask one of our receptionists or dispensary staff to explain.

If you collect medication from Pharmacy this information will be printed on the right hand side of your green NHS prescription form.

Broadly the following checks are needed. Only the most common ones are given as an example:

  • Blood tests Thyroid function tests (TFTs) are needed yearly.
  • Random cholesterol is done yearly only if you have diabetes or have had a stroke or heart attack etc otherwise it will not need to be done more often than 5 yearly, even if you are taking medication to lower it. Random means that you do not need to fast unless your Dr has specified this.

Below are all tests whose frequency will depend on your illness or medication.

  • U&Es a test of kidney function.
  • Full blood count (FBC)
  • Liver function tests (LFTs)

Urine tests: these can either be to check for urinary infection, or to check how well your kidneys are working particularly if you have diabetes, if previous tests have suggested that your kidney function might need to be monitored.
