According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 36 million people die annually from non-communicable diseases (NCD’s)
NCD’s are also referred to as chronic diseases which are typically long in duration and which are the result of a combination of:
- Genetic factors
- Physiological factors
- Environmental factors
- Behavioural factors
NCD’s mainly consist of:
- Cardiovascular Diseases (such as Heart Attack, Congestive Heart Failure, Stroke)
- Chronic Respiratory Diseases (such as COPD – Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases, Asthma)
At Now Patient we use a combination of cutting-edge technology, evidence-based disease risk algorithms and predictive healthcare analytics to identify at-risk groups to whom we can provide personalised disease state management services with the aim of preventing aggravation of chronic diseases.
Tobacco use, physical inactivity, the harmful use of alcohol and unhealthy diets all increase the risk of NCDs.
By making NHS funded clinical services available on demand, through video link, and also through manufacturer sponsored broadcast clinics, we are able to help you mitigate these factors.

- Pharmacist-led smoking cessation clinics
