Long Term Conditions Support
The practice takes a positive approach in supporting patients who have a long term condition, for example;
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Mental Health
Patients who have a long term condition are offered a regular review with one of our Specialist Nurses. They can provide support and information and help to identify problems early suggesting interventions which may be of benefit.
Once we are aware of your Long Term Condition, you will receive an invitation for an annual review just before or during your birth month. You may be required to have a blood test or urine check as part of the annual review process. If you do not wish to attend or are sent a pre-booked appointment that you know you cannot keep, it important that you let us know.
If you suffer from Asthma, you can check how well your asthma is under control by completing this Asthma Control Questionnaire
Once you have completed it, simply hand in to Reception for our Nurses to review your answers.
Whiteparish Surgery has a 24 hour blood pressure monitor and also electronic blood pressure machines for home readings. These can be lent to our patients when indicated by a doctor or nurse.
