Long Term Conditions

At Lion Health, we aim to provide the highest standards in care for a wide range of chronic diseases. We recognise the importance of patient education and the following pages contain a number of useful links and clinical advice.

Remember - If in doubt speak to your doctor as the information should only be used as a guide.

Specialist Clinics

At Lion Health, we offer a number of "specialised" clinics, which provide an opportunity for us to meet on a yearly basis with patients who have long-term conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and asthma. It is important to attend this invitation as it gives you the opportunity to discuss your condition with a member of your team. It also allows us to monitor your health to improve quality of care and safe medicine management. Each clinic is led by a doctor and supported by a well-trained team. Please be assured that you will be invited once per year, and that we ask you not to attend routine surgery appointments for check-ups. If your doctor or nurse is concerned about any issue, they will organise for you to be seen at an earlier appropriate time.

Please note if you require a blood pressure check, please book in with one of our healthcare assistants and NOT routinely with your doctor. We all adhere to the same clinical guidelines, and they will be able to direct to the appropriate clinic if there is cause for concern.
