Long Term Conditions: Talking Therapies
College Lane Surgery has welcomed a new member to the team, Jenny Stephens.
Jenny is a Cognitive Behaviour Therapist who has been trained in physical health problems as well as mental health problems.
Two thirds of people with Long Term Conditions will also have a mental health problem, mostly depression and anxiety disorders.
A further 70% of people with persistent physical experiences will experience depression or an anxiety disorder. These rates are much higher than in the general population.
Jenny, will target the needs of people with depression and anxiety disorders who also have Long Term Conditions (such as cardiovascular disease or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease [COPD]), or have other persistent physical experiences (such as chronic fatigue syndrome or irritable bowel syndrome).
So if you have a long term condition such as:
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Chronic Pulmonary Obstructive Disease
- Persistent Physical experiences
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Myalgic Encephalopathy
- Chronic Pain
- Coronary Heart Disease
And you are feeling down or anxious, at your next GP appointment they may ask you if you would be willing to speak to Jenny.
Long Term Condition Management
If you have a chronic illness such as diabetes, angina or asthma, you will be offered regular monitoring by the nurses to enable you to keep as healthy as possible. Where necessary you will be asked to see a doctor.
For patients who are due an annual asthma review please click the picture and answer the questions on the form and submit it to us. If your symptoms are deteriorating or you have any concerns, please make an appointment to the respiratory nurse or a doctor as well.
