Chronic Disease Management

We offer a holistic approach to chronic disease management. Patients will be sent an appointment around the time of their birthday. As far as possible, all diseases will be managed in the same appointment. However, respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) may be monitored separately. 

We are taking the Year of Care approach, so you will be invited in to see Jeni, our Healthcare Assistant, who will take your bloods and carry out some clinical screening such as height, weight, blood pressure, and foot check for diabetics. This will be a 20 minute appointment, you will then be given a further 20 minute appointment with Nickie, our Practice Nurse, to review your results and discuss your ongoing care with you using a patient-centred approach.
