Living with a long term condition

Support for long term conditions

The Long Term Conditions Programme supports health and social care teams to improve care for people living with long ­term health conditions and those who are at risk of falls. Our vision is to support health and social care teams to improve care and support by:

  • seeing the whole person rather than each individual condition
  • engaging the whole team involved in the person’s care, including third sector partners
  • improving the way that care and support is planned across the whole system.

We believe by adopting a person centred not condition centred approach, people can be empowered to become the leading partner in managing their own life and condition.

The Long Term Conditions Programme supports people with:

  • Anticipatory care planning
  • Falls support
  • Digital support
  • Self-Management.
