Medication Reviews and Long Term Conditions at Oakley and Overton Partnership

elderley_BP_checkManaging patients with long term conditions requires team work and we believe that you as the patient should lead the team. We encourage you to have a Care Plan in place and we discuss this with you.

To simplify the review process we suggest that you have your annual blood tests in the month of your birth and then see a nurse or doctor a week later when the results will be available. We encourage you to check your blood pressure in the waiting room between visits.

Sometimes, when things are not well controlled we need to see you more often so that we can support you and perhaps change your medication or refer you on to someone else to improve the management of your long term condition.

We work with other agencies such as Opticians, Podiatrists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Social Services, Hospital Consultants and the voluntary agencies to keep you well.

Often people have more than one long term condition and it takes quite a lot of coordinating and a spouse or relative becomes an unpaid carer. We want to support the work you do as a carer, so please let us know if you are caring for someone.

How do I book a Review and who do I need to see?

If you ring our surgery, our patient coordinators will book the appointments needed and ensure you have a clear plan in place to get the support you need.

As a guide we encourage the following appointments once a year (usually in the month of your birth). If you have more than one long term condition we try to cover all the problems in one longer appointment.
