A long-term condition refers to medical conditions that may have an ongoing impact on your health. At Shore Medical we are committed to supporting you with the management of this.
All patients with a long-term condition should have an annual review with one of our nurses or healthcare assistants. During your long-term condition appointment, the clinician will check your blood pressure, heart rate, take a blood sample, and update your health data and lifestyle information. Reviewing your condition on an annual basis will enable you to check that you are taking the correct medications. By taking responsibility for your medical condition you can help ensure that you are having the best possible care.
In addition to your annual review, Shore Medical and the NHS offer signposting and additional services to support you with self-management. Self-care can help you make the most of living with your condition, rather than avoiding or missing out on things because of it. Explore these services below:
