CELLO, General Practitioners Leiden
CELLO, the cooperation of primary health care practitioners in Leiden and surroundings, founded in 2009, is an organisation in which general practitioners
, dieticians, physiotherapists, practice nurses
and voluntary professionals
work closely together. You are invited to view the strategies developed by this cooperation, i.e. what CELLO means for the health of patients in Leiden and surroundings.
Based on the idea that “what’s good for 30.000 patients is usually also good for 300.000 patients” , CELLO’s editorial committee has posted multi-lingual patient letters (A-level), protocols (B-level) and updates of core articles (C-level) on Diabetes, Lung diseases, Obesity and the prevention of Cardio-Vascular diseases on the website.
Patients can read how they can cope with these diseases, how they can best be helped by professionals and what the scientific evidence is for the chosen approach. Due to cuts in the national health budget connections (zorgpacts) have been made with local centers, restaurants, gyms etc. to influence life style in a positive way.
With this detailed and thorough approach the editorial committee
also hopes to stimulate and support projects outside the direct affiliated area of CELLO. We invite you to provide us feedback, so that the care of chronic patients becomes and remains qualitative and accessible for everyone.
