New Information for Patients
LONG TERM CONDITIONS CLINIC
- Do you want to have more say about what decisions are made about your long term condition and the way you manage it?
- Do you want to work in closer partnership with the people delivering your care?
- Do you want to have an agreed plan to help you manage your condition?
If you answer “YES” to any of these questions, then a new way of delivering your care is likely to help. “Care Planning” aims to help people with a long term condition be more informed and more involved in making decisions about their own care.
We are changing how we help you manage your Long Term Condition. (A Long Term Condition is a condition that cannot at present be cured but can be controlled by medication and other therapies. Examples of Long Term Conditions are asthma, diabetes, heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).
If you have been diagnosed with any of the above you will be invited to attend our Long Term Conditions Clinic here at the surgery
You might find your clinical appointments are arranged a little differently to help you be more involved and this is all part of Care Planning.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION ON OUR LONG TERM CONDITION CLINICS PLEASE SPEAK TO THE DOCTOR.
