Chronic disease management is what General Practitioners do best. Your GP is highly skilled in this area and the coordination of your care with other health practitioners. It is important to make regular appointments to keep track of your chronic disease – even when you feel well.
Your GP is best placed to inform you if you are eligible for a Chronic Disease Management Plan. This working document helps you and your GP set goals, monitor progress, and keep track of other providers you may need to see.
Chronic illnesses include Diabetes, Heart Disease, Chronic lung disorders (asthma, COPD), Kidney disease, cancers, and many more.
