Chronic Disease Management

A good GP can not only diagnose and manage many chronic diseases, but also provide the support needed to coordinate a holistic, team based approach to achieve the best results for your long term health and life in general.  We recognise that you need to feel heard and understood to make this work. Our GP’s are experienced in dealing with many common childhood and adult chronic conditions and are willing to learn more about rarer conditions.

Chronic disease management plans are available for patients who suffer with a chronic medical condition that has been present for six months or longer. These plans are designed for patients who have complex conditions that require ongoing care, and a structured approach.

Team Care Arrangements compliment the plan by coordinating more effectively the care you need from your GP and other healthcare providers. TCAs require your GP to collaborate with at least two other health or care providers who will give ongoing treatment or services to you.

We offer care plans to all eligible patients who suffer from a chronic illness. Book an appointment with one of our GP’s to determine if you are eligible. Our practice nurse will provide support and monitoring between visits to your GP.

Chronic disease Management & care plans

Our GP’s can create either GP Management Plans (GPMP) or Team Care Arrangements (TCAs) for the management of chronic diseases.

Two different sorts of plans exist:

Your doctor might recommend a GPMP if you have a chronic (or terminal) medical condition.

Your doctor might also recommend TCAs if you need extensive care and need to see two or more other medical professionals for your therapy.

These Services are bulk billed but are subject to eligibility, you are only eligible for 1 Team Care Arrangement, GP Management Plan and Chronic Disease Management plan, per calendar year. Please check with the doctor or nurse about your eligibility.
