Every winter there is a rise in demand for health services. People with multiple chronic conditions, as well as older, frail people are more vulnerable during this period. To support general practices with these patients as well as reducing their likelihood of hospitalisation during the winter months, COORDINARE is aiming to introduce to general practice a winter strategy. It is aimed at helping practices identify their ‘at risk’ patients and develop an appropriate plan of action.
