A person-centred vision of care for people living with multiple long-term conditions for the Modern Outpatient Programme.
In this project, we responded to a challenge set by The Modern Outpatient Programme at the Scottish Government, to identify opportunities to innovate care for people living with multiple long-term conditions.
In Scotland, it is estimated that 47 per cent of the adult population have at least one long term condition and the number of people who live with multiple and complex conditions is growing. Currently our specialist care is delivered in hospitals, with each condition treated separately. This way of organising care requires people living with multiple conditions to attend many different appointments, which impacts on their lives and can be very tiring, and also represents an inefficient use of NHS resources.
