A chronic medical condition is one that has been present for at least six months or longer, such as:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Musculoskeletal conditions
A GP Management Plan (GPMP) can help people with chronic medical conditions by providing an organised approach to care. A GPMP is a plan of action you have agreed with your GP. This plan:
- identifies your health and care needs;
- sets out the services to be provided by your GP; and
- lists the actions you can take to help manage your condition.
