Project Description

Chronic Disease Management

The roll-out of a new Chronic Disease Management Programme for GMS/GPVC patients has started.

The first phase of the Programme is targeting medical card & Doctor Visit card patients, aged over 70 years, with the following chronic diseases:

  • Diabetes Type 2
  • Asthma
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Cardiovascular Disease including:
    • Heart Failure
    • Ischaemic Heart Disease
    • Cerebrovascular Disease (Stroke/ Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA))
    • Atrial Fibrillation

Patients who are entitled to this new HSE initiative will be contacted by our practice team to attend the surgery in person for a nurse consultation or remotely by telephone in line with current Covid19 restrictions.

Patients will then be contacted in six months’ time after their nurse consultation to attend their doctor for a follow up GP consultation. These reviews will include patient education, preventative care, medication review, physical examination, investigations and an individual care plan.

This is a free service.

We are open for appointments weekdays from 9.00am to 6:00pm – half day on Wednesdays. We are closed Saturday and Sunday but ring the surgery anytime for details on the Doctor On Call service.
