Chronic Conditions

Any condition which is not curable will benefit from implementation of a good management plan that is individualised to suit your personal history and lifestyle.

To this end we will devise a GP Management Plan that provides you with a summary document of all the health issues that are being monitored, include your agreed goals and the strategies to be used to achieve them. If necessary, we will develop a Team Care Arrangement that includes the input of all the health professionals that contribute to the management process.

Typical conditions include:

Cardiovascular disease such as ischaemic heart disease, atrial fibrillation and heart failure

Respiratory disease such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Kidney disease such as renal failure due to a variety of causes, or recurrent stone formation

Diabetes and its related complications as well as other metabolic disorders

Mental health conditions such as mood disorders or schizophrenia

Immune problems such as allergy, coeliac or thyroid disease

Skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis

Joint disease such as osteo- or rheumatoid arthritis or gout

Neurological conditions such as migraine or dementia

Childhood challenges with behaviour, learning or developmental problems

Intellectual disability requiring the provision of supported home care
