Chronic Disease Management

We offer a Chronic Disease Management program that helps to plan and coordinate the health care of patients with a chronic condition. This includes those that require multidisciplinary care from their GP and other allied health professionals. This program encourages individuals to take an active part in their health care management.

Patients who have a chronic condition and complex care needs are eligible for a GPMP. Components of a GPMP include:

  • Identifying individual health care needs
  • Identifying actions to be taken by the patient and GP

This assessment is performed by our practice nurse and your GP.  A review of this plan is conducted every 3- 6 months to ensure patients are receiving appropriate care to best manage their health and wellbeing.
