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.
