Specifically, we have mapped out the changes experienced by various patient segments including the mostly healthy and the most at-risk groups (patients with priority acute conditions, cancer, mental health and multiple long-term conditions), against different stages of the pathway (prevalence, access/diagnosis, treatment and post-treatment/recovery).
