Chronic diseases and disorders affect the quality of life of billions worldwide.

Chronic Disease is a long-lasting condition that can be controlled but not cured.   As described by the Centres for Disease Control, chronic disease is the leading cause of death and disability worldwide.  Data from the World Health Organization show that chronic disease is also the major cause  of premature death around the world even in places where infectious disease are rampant. Although chronic diseases are among the most common and costly health problems, they are also among the most preventable and most can be effectively controlled.


Chronic Disease Management - Annual Reviews


Chronic disease refers to medical conditions that may have an ongoing impact on your health. In particular we use this term to refer to the following conditions:


  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • CKD (Chronic kidney disease)
  • Mental Health conditions such as schizophrenia or bipolar depression
  • Ischaemic heart disease
  • Heart Failure
  • Stroke or mini-stroke (TIA)
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Thyroid disease
  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • Peripheral arterial disease


f you have any of the above conditions, we recommend that you have an annual review. Some of these conditions require monitoring with blood tests or other tests such as breathing assessments or urine tests.

Reviewing your condition on an annual basis will enable you to check that you are taking the correct medications.

We would like to ask for your help in this matter. By taking responsibility for your medical condition you can help ensure that you are having the best possible care.

This review process is important and we will not be able to continue prescribing repeat medications without it.


For annual reviews please book an appointment with Practice Nurse
