A new guidebook shows how people with several health problems can best be looked after by local authorities and other agencies working together.

The Multiple Conditions Guidebook: case studies and practical solutions for local areas to improve health and wellbeing’ showcases 10 examples of how care can be provided.

It shows how local areas and frontline professionals in local government, the voluntary and community sectors, health and social care are providing better support for the 15 million people in England living with multiple long-term conditions.

The Taskforce on Multiple Conditions says the aim is to share learning and practical tools for designing and delivering approaches that work.

Liam O’Toole, chair of the Richmond Group of Charities and the Expert Advisory Group to the Taskforce on Multiple Conditions, said: 'From the many conversations we’ve had with frontline professionals faced about the challenge of how best to respond to the needs of people living with multiple conditions, one message was loud and clear.

'Policy reports alone won’t do the trick – we need practical insight and advice. We hope this resource offers just that: practical learning to inspire others who are keen to make changes but aren’t sure where to start.'
