Patient Initiated Follow-Up

When you are feeling well and there is nothing for us to help you with, we will ask you to get in contact with us as and when you need us. This means we will not plan to contact you on a regular basis. This does not mean that we are not here for you. You remain under our care and if you develop any symptoms or need support from us, you or your loved ones can contact us at any time of the day or night.
