Chronic Disease Register Reviews
We operate a birthday recall system for patients who are on our disease registers.
This means anyone who is on our CD register will recieve a letter the month before or the month of thier birthday to come in for their annual review. We hope this will help remind patients that their review is due at the same time each year.
