What is population health management?

Posted on 14-Sep-2018 15:01:47

People in the UK are living with chronic illnesses but not getting appropriate treatment. Without intervention, patients face worsening health with irreversible damage.

Posted on 29-Jun-2018 15:27:45

It costs the UK £8 billion a year to treat the preventable complications of diabetes. Over 4 million people are living with diabetes in the UK. Better self-management will make an enormous difference to a patient's well being.  If these patients can learn how to manage their illness better, they will reduce the strain on GP practices.

General Practice is changing. Official figures show that GP numbers are decreasing, but at the same time workload is increasing. We don't have a magic wand to make these conflicting pressures disappear.

Anticoagulants help prevent blood clots, reducing the risk of strokes and heart attacks. Warfarin is the most widely prescribed anticoagulant in the UK.
