Living with a long-term condition

Emma sees the nurse regularly for blood tests and reviews because she has diabetes. The nurse is knowledgeable and answers all her questions.

Simon: The emotional health of people living with long-term conditions can ‘get pushed under the carpet’. Patients shouldn’t feel guilty or ashamed about feeling stressed.

Jalé : Young people have lots of pressures and expectations. They may be going through a roller coaster of emotions. Giving them information helps.
