Even after 4 times follow up when a suspected patient did not get tested

I am working with NGO MAMTA for healthrise program supported by ABT associates and funded by Medtronic philanthropy.Through SALT and CLCP we are trying to motivate patients to respond to hypertension and diabetes. I saw the following changes after CLCP in Patient Support Group in Junga, Mashobra block, Himachal, India.

A male patient attended our health camp in August 2016. He was informed that he might have hypertension and was advised to go to hospital for check up. Inspite of following up with him 4 times to go to the hospital for check up the patient did not do so. He attended the SALT meeting which was facilitated by Rafique and Aditya few months ago. He lives far away and I do not get to meet him very often. When I met him recently he said that the SALT meeting motivated him to go for check up. He was diagnosed with hypertension. He takes his medicine regularly. He used to get frequent headaches due to high blood pressure. Now he does not get any headaches and is feeling better.

Well done, Tarun, a great result. 

When you see the patient again, I would be very interested to understand just what made him change his mind and go for a checkup.
