  • See your dentist regularly
  • Follow your doctor’s advice when taking any prescribed medicines
  • Keep any appointments at the surgery or at the hospital.

Many patients will see a doctor or nurse regularly but others will not. Patients over 75 years who have not seen a doctor or nurse at all within the last 12 months, or patients between 17 and 75 years who have not seen a doctor or nurse at all within the last three years are encouraged to request a consultation for a review of their health.
