Patients with Long Term Conditions

If you have a long term condition (also known as a ‘Chronic Disease’) it is likely that you will need regular health checks (usually once or twice a year).

At WPMC we will write to you in the month of your birth to let you know which check-ups you need. Please follow the instructions in the letter.

If you have a long term condition, and do not receive a letter, please discuss this with your Doctor.

We also have access to community nursing teams who specialise in certain conditions, for example: Diabetes, COPD, Heart Failure. Your Doctor or nurse will let you know if you need to be referred to these teams.
