If you have ever had a stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA), the nursing team would like to review you on an annual basis to ensure that your risk of developing further cerebrovascular problems is reduced as much as possible. This check will involve discussing your diet, exercise, smoking history and alcohol intake. We will weigh you, check your blood pressure and take blood to check your kidney function, glucose levels, and cholesterol levels. We also ask you to bring a fresh sample of urine to this clinic with you.
