Available on The King’s Fund website, the publication “aims to deliver proactive, holistic and patient-centred care for people with long-term conditions.”


The model differs from others in two important ways: it encompasses all people with long-term conditions (not just those with a single disease or in high-risk groups) and it assumes an active role for patients, with collaborative personalised care planning at its heart.
