Chronic Disease

GPcare has a care planning nurse who specialises in supporting people with long term health conditions, for example; diabetes, neurological disorders, heart, lung, kidney conditions or chronic pain. Our planning nurse is available to provide individualised support and care planning including referral to other supportive services.

Assessments are available for people aged 75 years and over to look at anything that may affect your health and wellbeing as you get older. The nurse will also be able to help you understand what services and support are available and if necessary arrange this on your behalf.

If you are aged between 45 and 49 you may be eligible for a free health check to see if you are at risk of developing a long term health condition. People from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander heritage are eligible for a health check at any stage of your life to see if you are at risk of developing a long term health condition.
