GP Care plans?
Any patient with a ‘chronic medical condition’ should have access to our allied health staff to develop a plan to make a change.
A ‘chronic medical condition’ is one that has been or is likely to be present for at least six months. Whether a patient is eligible for CDM services is a clinical judgement for the GP, taking into account the patient’s medical condition and care needs. Don’t wait till its too late to develop a Team Care arrangement for your patients, their health is in your hands.
