[A version of this item appears in: Dementia: the Latest Evidence Newsletter (RWHT), Volume 2 Issue 11, June 2012].


The Department of Health has published the third edition of the “Long Term Conditions Compendium of Information”.

In addition to the latest statistical data on long-term conditions, there are links to LTC QIPP (quality, innovation, productivity and prevention) developments and the evaluation of the “whole system demonstrator” for telehealth and telecare (which supports the 3 Million Lives programme). Examples of innovative LTC care projects across the UK are supplied. Section headings cover:

  • The Policy Context.
  • Long Term Conditions and Mental Health.
  • Emerging Technology: Telehealth & Telecare.
