The Adelaide Health Foundation has been systematically examining the opinions of general practitioners, hospital consultants and practice nurses regarding the provision of healthcare for the sufferers of chronic diseases in Ireland and now of the sufferers themselves, the patients. The reports make sobering reading. None of the groups surveyed were satisfied with current systems of chronic disease management although, interestingly, patients appear to be somewhat less dissatisfied than healthcare professionals, but expressed a strong wish for clear communications.
