Policy and Statistics background

The Kings Fund has produced this really informative page detailing the key facts, publications and current policy ideas around long-term conditions. . . .

Two things really stood out to me:
  • There are 15.4 million people in England with at least one long term condition
  •  In 2005 a generic model for LTC management - National Service Framework for LTC - but how much improvement have we seen in clinics since then?!
A wealth of information in these pages, and some encouraging policy ideas - just seems to take an age for them to be filtered into practise!!!
