Help CCC care for people with long-term condition and or chronic illnesses

Research by the Croydon Long-Term Conditions Community Outreach team shows that 23% of Croydon residents live with two or more Long-Term Conditions. When left untreated these conditions can lead to complications and hospitalisation, highlighting the importance of providing support within the community (Posted Wednesday, 23 March 2022 by Olutunji Ebun-Cole).

The prevalence of long‑term conditions is strongly linked to ageing. Prevention, delaying the onset and slowing the progression of long‑term conditions are all important outcomes for young and older people. Other important outcomes include independence, quality of life, choice, dignity and control.

“Despite recent policy focusing on integrated health and social care services, LTC patients are still being treated as a collection of conditions or symptoms, rather than as people”

People with multiple long‑term conditions want joined‑up, coordinated services that address their concerns but often find they are hard to access and disjointed.

A need for Hydrotherapy Services and Rehabilitation Therapies has been identified in all quadrants of Greater London

Continuing Community Care (CCC) want to relieve the pressure on the NHS and local authorities by providing a fully accessible State of the Art, Rehabilitation Centre with provisions for people with Long-Term Conditions and or chronic illness as a priority
