  • This report used a combination of primary care data for Wirral, combined with mortality and population trends and epidemiological estimates from the research literature to estimate the potential burden of a set of long term conditions for the 15 years from 2016-2031. 

  • Estimates were produced for diagnosed prevalence, inpatient costs, morbidity-related quality adjusted life years (QALYs) lost and mortality-related QALYs lost for 2016 to give a total burden of QALYs lost for each disease. To our knowledge, this has never been done before. 

  • The results from this model should be used for planning for health and social care services in Wirral. This report may be used in conjunction with the Commissioning for Value LTC pack[1] and with several new models around LTCs such as the “Realising the Value” tool developed by Nesta and the Health Foundation,[2] or the “Long Term Conditions Financial Modelling Tool”[3] developed by SIMUL8, Datalytics, NHSE and Kings Health Partners. These models can be used to look at interventions to improve management of people with long term conditions
