Long Term Conditions

Birthday Month Review or Annual Review Clinics (ARC) - Managing Long Term Conditions

For the last 10 years we have been running a popular recall system for all patients with high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis (ARC) and other risks of heart problems and strokes which is based on the month in which you are born. This provides a memorable prompt as to when your next review is due and allows us to spread our workload through the year.
