Chronic Disease Management
Our Structured Chronic Disease Management (CDM) Programme aims to improve the health and wellbeing of patients living with certain chronic diseases. On this HSE-managed scheme, patients are actively monitored to improve management of their conditions, free of charge. Patients are requested to attend for an annual review and a follow up review at the practice within a 12 month period.

The chronic disease management programme provides structured reviews of one of the above conditions, regular reviews of medications, opportunities for structured education and self- management support, early detection of any new conditions or complications.
