Help manage a long-term health condition with Echo by LloydsPharmacy

Remove one stress from your life by getting your medication delivered straight to your door – and at no extra cost!

What is a long-term health condition?

Also known as a chronic condition, it’s a health problem that requires ongoing management, such as diabetes, hypertension, depression or arthritis. It can’t always be cured, but can often be controlled with medication and other therapies, as advised, and by following lifestyle guidance.

How to manage your condition

The advice you’re given will vary depending on your condition. For example, some joint pain sufferers may benefit from taking vitamin D and applying a hot water bottle to painful areas, especially during the winter months. Practising good self-care may help, so set yourself goals and action plans to prioritise your health. Keep a diary to track your progress and to motivate you to stick with recommended lifestyle changes.

Get support

Ask your GP for information about courses in your area aimed at helping you live well with your condition. It can also help to join a support group to connect with others. You’ll be able to share tips and advice and will hopefully feel less alone with it. Arranging to get your medication delivered straight to your door will mean you won’t run out when you need it, which will help with your symptoms.
