Quality statements

Quality statements

Statement 1 Adults with multimorbidity are identified by their GP practice.

Statement 3 Adults with an individualised management plan for multimorbidity know who is responsible for coordinating their care.

Other quality standards that should be considered when commissioning or providing multimorbidity services include:
