Chronic Disease Management

We offer annual reviews for patients diagnosed with any of the following conditions:

  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Asthma and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Strokes
  • Epilepsy
  • Mental Health Problems
  • Cancer

All nurses receive advance training in chronic disease management resulting in extensive knowledge and experience in patient management. If you have been diagnosed with one of the above conditions, your GP will involve the practice nurse in your care at the earliest opportunity. Once your condition is stabilised the practice nurse will assume responsibility for the monitoring and routine follow up of your chronic disease. If this monitoring reveals any problems that may require a significant change in therapy, the nurse will refer you back to your GP. However, if at any time you develop new symptoms that concern you, please make an appointment to see either the GP or nurse.

Patients will be sent a letter, at least once a year, inviting them to attend for review and if necessary to have a blood test. Please keep this appointment as it is a very important part of your patient care.
