Chronic disese managmentClick on the topics below -  for examples of evidence based (brief) guidelines for Primary Care 


Although we seek to provide accurate and up to date information (note dates of update), there can be no guarantee that the information is accurate or that it will continue to be accurate in the future. We do not accept responsibility for any errors. This is particularly so with regard to drug indications, suggested doses, side-effects and interactions, which should always be guided by an appropriate national formulary.

In order to deliver quality chronic disease management services within primary care we have to have:

  • A patient centred approach.
  • Consistency from the multidisciplinary team in terms of targets, schedules of care, clinical management etc.
  • Validated and maintained disease registers.
  • Robust call and recall systems.
  • Accessible, pragmatic, evidence based, primary care orientated guidelines.

Unfortunately one of the great challenges we face in general practice is keeping pace with the rapidly changing evidence base for chronic disease management. To cope with this and to standardise care Brig Royd Surgery has created (and updated annually) these chronic disease management guidelines. As there are conflicting national guidelines in some areas of chronic disease management we have opted for pragmatic, achievable targets that fall between differing national guidelines.
