Long term Conditions
A key part of modern general practice is the management of chronic diseases such as asthma, hypertension (high blood pressure) and type 2 diabetes. Priory Medical Group has highly trained specialist nurses in all these areas of chronic disease management.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are aware some patients have had their annual review delayed. We are offering innovative solutions such as asthma reviews via text or video consultation. We are prioritising our very high risk patients initially but are able to offer remote annual reviews to all our patients in due course. If you have a question about your chronic disease you can use the prioryCARE online form to get in touch, choose nurse appointment, then “I have a question about.....”.
If you are due a blood pressure check; many of our reception areas now have a “BP pod” and you can book an appointment slot to use this via the NHSapp and your SystmOnline account. You can also do home blood pressure readings and either drop off a paper copy of the results (with name and DOB included) to any of our reception desks or use the prioryCARE online system and choose the general enquiries tile.
Blood testing capacity is limited but we have some phlebotomy clinics running across our surgeries. You can use the prioryCARE online system to request a blood test appointment (choose the nursing appointment tile), phone us or ask a receptionist to assist you.
York Hospital drop-in blood taking is based at the Community Stadium, Kathryn Avenue YO32 9AF (open 8am-5pm Monday to Friday) and any changes to this will be communicated here.
