Multiple morbidities

Multi-morbidity is the presence of two or more long-term health conditions. Around a quarter of people in the UK live with multi-morbidity, and is more prevalent in deprived communities and older people. As the population ages, an increasing number of people will be living with multiple chronic conditions, resulting in an increased demand on health and social care services.
