Within NHS Nene CCG, we define long-term conditions as:
Those chronic health conditions that cannot, at present, be cured.
The overall vision for managing long-term conditions across Northamptonshire is for a model of shared care that promotes health and wellbeing, and is driven centrally by the individual. It aims to deliver a whole systems approach to care, and through transformational workforce change, deliver care that is liberating, and places people at the heart of their care. As the experts they know what works best, and through the development of effective partnership working will influence local professionals to enable it to happen in their own communities.
Our approach to supporting people with long-term conditions living in Northamptonshire is to:
Promote health and wellbeing and the prevention of ill health in either body or mind. Services will be developed to encourage people to build social capital and communities, moving away from people needed high-cost specialist services
Provide access to a community neighbourhood team to support people in managing their long-term conditions
Provide support through the use of risk-profiling tools
Provide support to write personal wellbeing plans. The plans will encompass health and social care needs
Give access to the NHS Health Check programme
Improve the quality of outcomes in primary care
Ensure people with long-term conditions are seen as ‘our customers’, enabling them to prioritise their needs at their own pace
