Annual Medication Monitoring (Birthday Bloods)

nice_vlue_pillsMost patients on repeat medication are required to have an annual blood test around the month of their birthday. This is to ensure you are receiving the best possible treatment with as few side effects as possible. 

Please make an appointment with the practice nurse during your birthday month; tell the receptionist it is for your annual “Medication Monitoring”.  Please bring a sample of urine for testing at your appointment.

For patients who only use an inhaler, this annual blood test is not necessary but please remember it is extremely important that you attend for your appointments at the Asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Clinics.
