health check

Don’t be thrown by the graph — the scale is set incorrectly —  what it shows is that only half the group have an annual health check.   As I recall, all older people are entitled to an annual health check, so is it that they are not offered one , or are they just not turning up.  Either way, they should all be getting a six monthly medication review, I wonder if this is happening.

FOOTNOTE :-          There must be scope for health improvement in this area.  A HEALTH APP to prompt you to get your medication and annually to arrange with your GP to have your overall well being checked could be useful.
