We provide the HSE Chronic Disease Management Programme which is a free service to patients over 70 years, who hold a medical card or G.P visit card, with the following chronic disease:
- Diabetes Type 2
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Cardiovascular Disease which includes Heart failure, Ischaemic Heart Disease, Cerebrovascular Disease or Atrial Fibrillation.
All patients on the programme receive two scheduled reviews each year with the Nurse and GP. This programme is expected to be rolled out to patients over 65 years in January 2021 and to younger age groups in subsequent years.
