Over 15 million people in the UK live with a long-term condition. Traditionally, patients with a chronic health issue have sometimes had to attend unnecessary appointments – for instance, a routinely scheduled checkup even though their condition is entirely stable. They may also have found that, when their condition was problematic, support was not offered early enough to prevent serious exacerbations.
This has led to poor patient experience, as well as being an inefficient way for health services to run.
