This is a continuation of the CAFE Health survey. ( Other posts in this series can be found either by clicking on “CAFE Project” in the Tag Cloud or by clicking on “GrumbleSmiles Trust” in the Topics list)
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.
