Long-term conditions overview
Long-term conditions are those which are not expected to be cured in the short-term. However, the phrase can mean different things to different individuals, professions and organisations. Communicable long-term conditions such as HIV and AIDS are covered in other section of the website (please refer to the A-Z). This section covers the following non-communicable long-term conditions.
- Cardiovascular disease (including coronary heart disease and stroke)
- Liver disease
- Respiratory disease (including asthma and COPD)
Thematic JSNA for long-term conditions in Lancashire-14
In 2013 we completed a thematic JSNA (PDF 481 KB) for long-term conditions in Lancashire-14. This focused on four preventable condition groups: cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease and diabetes. The priorities and goals are listed below.
- Intelligence - intelligence for long-term conditions that it fit for purpose
- Prevention - greater emphasis on reducing the prevalence and impact of long-term conditions
- Urgent care - improving the management of care for people with multiple chronic conditions
- Long-term conditions model of care - development of the LTC model of care
- Empowerment - empowerment of service users and carers
Long-term conditions summary reports for each of the six clinical commissioning groups in the Lancashire-12 area have been added to the web page for each CCG. There are also reports in the area profiles (health and wellbeing section) for each of the 14 authority areas.
