More about this project

An increasing number of people have more than one long term health problem. This study aims to develop and test a new approach to how GP practices manage patients with several health problems. Instead of following guidelines for each disease in isolation, the aim is to treat the whole patient in a consistent, joined up manner in order to improve their overall quality of life. GP surgeries around Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow are being recruited to take part in this study.
