    Hi

    You should be seeing your GP for your annual checkups and blood tests, that is the only way to find out if you supplements are at the correct level.

    Hi Dawn.

    Like Paul says, you should be having at least one check up a year to make sure everything is as it should be with your bloods. It doesn’t have to be with the same team, so ask your new GP to organise it for you. The NHS have a duty of care towards you whether or not you are an thier patient with your weight loss surgery.
