Long term conditions

15.4 million people in England (over a quarter of the population) have a long term condition

Long term conditions

Living with a long-term condition brings challenges and it's important to have the confidence, support and information to take control of your condition. This is called self-care, which means looking after yourself in a healthy way, whether it’s taking your medicine properly or doing some exercise.

Self-care doesn't mean you need to manage on your own. You can expect lots of support from the NHS.
