Stroke/TIA

***During COVID-19 we will aim to complete your reviews over the telephone but will be focussing on those patients who are the most in need****

If you have suffered from a stroke or a TIA (transient ischaemic attack) in the past you will be taking medications to reduce the risk of this happening again.

Once a year during your birthday month you will be invited to book an appointment with the treatment room nurses. They will perform various investigations including bloods tests, blood pressure and weight.   At the end of this appointment you will be offered an appointment, at a time convenient to you, to discuss the results with the practice nurse.

During your appointment it may be necessary to adjust your medications slight depending on how well you are and the results of your blood tests.
