You have been invited to complete this review to help manage your long-term conditions. The first part will gather some lifestyle information and ask questions about medicines in general. In the second section you will be able to select the long-term conditions relevant to you and answer important questions. It is best to set aside at least 20 minutes to complete all the sections. Your answers will always be seen by the practice team, and you can indicate at the end of each relevant section if you feel further discussion is needed.
- COPD (breathing)
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Coronary heart disease
YOU NEED: recent weight and height.
Blood pressure: You can submit blood pressure readings if you take them yourself. Ideally two readings twice a day over 4-7 days (max 30). Alternatively you may be able to check your blood pressure at the practice, but please call first to check.
Blood sugar: You can submit your home blood sugar readings here. Please take a reading before each meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and before bed for 4-7 days
For both blood sugar and blood pressure readings it works best to gather all your readings before completing this review
