Chronic Disease Management

Led by the Practice Nurses in liaison with the doctors.

Our nurses have extensive knowledge and experience in the management of conditions such as diabetes, asthma, chronic heart disease, COPD and high blood pressure. If you have been diagnosed with one of these conditions, your GP will involve the practice nurses in your care at the earliest opportunity after your condition has been stabilised. The nurse will then assume responsibility for the monitoring and management of your chronic disease, liaising closely with the hospital/GP as necessary.

In addition, our Healthcare Assistant monitors patients who have straightforward hypertension. She works closely with the doctors and nurses to ensure routine tests are up to date.
