UCLPartners Primary Care: support for long-term condition management
COVID-19 has placed unprecedented pressure on our health system. Immediate focus has understandably been on supporting patients with, or, at risk, of the virus.
However, there is a large cohort of people living with long term conditions that need ongoing, proactive management to prevent a wave of exacerbations in the months ahead.
To help keep people healthy and well in their homes both during and post COVID-19, UCLPartners has developed a primary care support package based on new pathway development, virtual consultations, digital solutions and optimal use of the wider primary care team, such as Healthcare Assistants and Pharmacists, to support management of long-term conditions.
The long-term conditions focused on are:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD)
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Cardiovascular disease (including hypertension, heart failure, atrial fibrillation and high cholesterol)
