Group Consultations support you to keep well and help review your condition. You will have a one-to-one consultation and get to spend more time with your healthcare team in a group setting with fellow patients with similar issues.
To help you get the most from this consultation, some key data relating to your condition may be shared within the group, for example blood pressure, blood test results, etc.
Having other people with the same condition and set of challenges in this session allows you to connected with and support each other.
Patients who receive care in this way tell us they prefer it to shorter and often rushed one to one or telephone appointments.
