Complex care in the community and primary care

Complex care in the community and primary care

Article topics: Community care, Complex needs, Primary care

The number of people living with complex, multiple health conditions is increasing. It is estimated that almost three million people in the UK have three or more long-term conditions, whether these are physical or mental, psychological or cognitive (King’s Fund, 2020). In addition, people living in more socially deprived areas are at greater risk of developing such conditions. Nurses working in the community have a hugely important role to play in supporting people affected to live the healthiest lives possible — working with carers and families.
