Ballina Medical Centre – Excellence in Community Medicine

Chronic Disease Management Programme

Ballina Medical Centre is participating in the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) programme.

 This is for patients with a diagnosis of:

  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • Cardiovascular disease

It is a patient-centred programme involving visits with our practice nurses and doctors to optimise your health and wellbeing.
This programme is fully funded by the HSE for patients with a medical card/ doctor visit card. An equivalent programme is provided for our private patients.

Benefits of the CDM programme:

  • Two structured appointments to review your chronic disease and medications per year
  • Individual care plan developed with your GP and practice nurse
  • Education and support to aid self-management for the illness
  • Opportunity to assess for complications of the illness at an early stage
  • Community care for your illness rather than hospital-based appointments
