Multimorbidity is an increasingly problematic issue for healthcare delivery and healthcare professionals. People with multimorbidity are more likely to attend, and to require health and social care assistance more frequently, especially unplanned admissions to hospital, iatrogenic problems from polypharmacy and are at risk of premature death.

The burden of care for these individuals is significant across primary, secondary and community care. The prevalence of multimorbidity is thought to be around 27%.
