An initiative for patients with more complex medical conditions. Our nurses run Chronic Disease Management Clinics in conjunction with the patient’s doctor to assist patients to develop healthy living plans. The plans outline all aspects of their care and look at improving health outcomes with the assistance of a Care Team including the GP and other allied health specialists.
