Case Study

The aim of the case study is to enable you to develop a holistic understanding of the biopsychosocial model/theories and elements of professional practice as applied to an individual and family, whom you might work with in a health and social care setting.  

Hasan is 48 years old; he lives with his wife Salima and their 4 children Fahemma 5 years old; Nadir 7 years old; Amira 10 years old and Hussain 13 years old. The family live in a terraced house, close to the city centre of Bradford.  The area has high levels of deprivation, including unemployment, crime, poverty and poor educational attainment. There is little access to green urban space and the local high street has many take-aways and limited shops suppling fresh fruit and vegetables. Hasan was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes 4 years ago; he also has high blood pressure, and his BMI is 32 putting him in the obese weight range.

Hasan has struggled to manage his diabetes and frequently has high blood glucose levels due to his poor diet, which is high in fat and carbohydrates. Hasan says he doesn’t really understand his medication regime, how to monitor his blood glucose or his dietary requirements. His GP has recently told him that he needs to lose weight or there is a serious risk he will have to start injecting insulin and might develop cardiovascular or renal disease in the future. Hasan is also a smoker, he smokes approximately 25 cigarettes per day, he does very little physical activity, because he gets breathless easily and the GP is arranging tests for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Hasan does not drink alcohol

Hasan works as a taxi driver, mainly shift work 9pm till 5am in the morning, he does manage to use a vape when at work as he can’t smoke in his taxi. The family are classed as a low-income family and Hasan often finds himself in debt and must work overtime to manage the household bills. Hasan has told his GP that he feels stressed a lot of the time and not able to take control of his own health due to all the external family problems, which often results in him missing his diabetic hospital appointments. He is the main carer for his wife who was diagnosed with post-natal depression and psychosis after the birth of their son Nadir.

Salima was sectioned under the MHA when Nadir was 3 months old and spent 6 months as an inpatient at a local psychiatric unit which limited early bonding with Nadir, who has developed behavioural difficulties and has a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder. Salima’s mental health problems have persisted, she frequently feels tired, withdraws to her bedroom and does not like leaving the house due to her anxiety. Salima has regular visits from a Community Mental Health Nurse, who is working with her to try and encourage Salima to access a local Asian Women’s Support Centre, however both Hasan and Salima are very reluctant to this suggestion as they believe that the family should deal with and support each other with health problems. Hasan does the majority of shopping and cooking for the family and takes and picks the children up from school. Hussain tries to help his Dad around the house and with caring for his younger siblings, however he has started to fall behind with his schoolwork and has been increasingly getting into trouble at school for not doing his homework and playing truant.

Hasan has extended family that live close by, both his parents live with his brother and sister-in-law and their 3 children. Hasan’s mother Aziz is 74 years old and has dementia, she has limited English language and her family act as interpreter when she needs to attend the hospital. Hasan doesn’t want to talk to his brother about his own problems because he knows the family are struggling to cope with caring for Aziz. Hasan visits his local Mosque regularly and ensures his children attend Madrasa, he says he finds great spiritual comfort in his beliefs and the community support at the Mosque.  

The GP refers Hasan to you, the social prescribing link worker for support with his current physical and mental health and social problems. Hasan says he has tried to lose weight, stop smoking and take up more physical activity but just can’t seem to change his lifestyle with all that is going on. He is willing to attend the appointments with you and says he understands his health is a risk and he is very worried about this because if somethings happened to him then the family would really struggle to cope, however he can’t seem to find the motivation to change his lifestyle behaviours.

About this assignment

Long-term conditions (LTCs) encompass a wide range of chronic illnesses that significantly impact individuals` lives. These conditions, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and chronic respiratory disorders, require ongoing management rather than curative treatment. The defining feature of LTCs is their persistence over time, necessitating comprehensive strategies for both medical care and emotional support. Individuals grappling with LTCs often face not only physical symptoms but also profound emotional and social challenges. Managing pain, adjusting to lifestyle modifications, and coping with the uncertainty of their condition can contribute to increased stress levels and reduced quality of life (QoL). Therefore, understanding the holistic impact of LTCs on individuals is crucial in designing effective support systems.


Support systems play a pivotal role in enhancing the quality of life and overall well-being of individuals with LTCs. Healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, and specialists, form the frontline of support by providing medical expertise and personalized care plans. Beyond medical interventions, community-based support groups and online forums offer invaluable peer support and shared experiences, fostering a sense of belonging and reducing feelings of isolation. Family caregivers also play a critical role, offering emotional support and practical assistance in managing daily routines. These support networks not only complement clinical care but also empower individuals with LTCs to actively participate in their treatment decisions and self-management strategies.


Despite the availability of support systems, challenges persist within healthcare services designed for LTC management. Access to specialized care, continuity of treatment, and patient education are critical factors influencing the effectiveness of healthcare interventions. Interdisciplinary care teams, comprising professionals from various fields, collaborate to provide holistic care tailored to the complex needs of LTC patients. However, disparities in healthcare access and resources can hinder optimal outcomes for individuals with LTCs. Addressing these systemic issues through policy reforms and advocacy efforts is essential to ensuring equitable healthcare delivery and enhancing the resilience of individuals managing LTCs.


In conclusion, supporting people with long-term conditions demands a multifaceted approach that integrates medical care, community support, and policy advocacy. By understanding the profound impact of LTCs on individuals` lives, strengthening support systems, and advocating for inclusive healthcare policies, we can empower individuals with LTCs to lead fulfilling lives despite their chronic health challenges. Through continuous improvement and innovation in care delivery, we can strive towards a future where every individual with an LTC receives the support and resources necessary to live life to the fullest extent possible
