Long Term Conditions

Posted on:

We are improving the way we work with patients with long-term conditions.

Patients living with certain long-term conditions will be encouraged to attend a Yearly Health Check. Long term

conditions are those that impact over a long period of time, such as diabetes and heart diseases.

Patients will receive personalised care and support from healthcare professionals from their general

practice. This will cover things that patients say matter most to their health and wellbeing, from the best

treatment for their condition, to wider things like employment, housing, and mental health.

Our goal is that by planning care together with care, patients will have the confidence to manage their

health, reduce their risk of being admitted to hospital, and have a better quality of life.
