A Long Term Conditions Information Pathway (pdf) has been designed to assist NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde staff, who work with patients who have Long Term Conditions, or their carers. It identifies publications which are available to support effective communication with patients.

Publications and resources can be ordered via the Public Health Resource Directory.
