Midlothian Long Term Conditions Action Group

The Long Term Conditions Action Team has the overview of the management of all long term conditions. A long term condition is broadly defined as one that requires ongoing medical care, limits what one can do, and is likely to last longer than one year.

Using a toolkit and derived action plan, a number of work streams are being taken forward including:

  • A Rapid Response Service
  • Intermediate rehabilitation
  • Action on COPD
  • A Falls Strategy and pilot of intervention on 4 care home settings New Enhanced Services for cancer patients and individuals with a learning disability.

The CHP works in partnership with council colleagues, the acute hospitals, the voluntary sector, carers groups and the extended primary care team.
