More information

There are two Self Management Programmes to choose from:

Expert Patients Programme (EPP) – a six week course for adults living with long-term health conditions. The EPP aims to help you take more control of your health by learning new skills to manage your condition better on a daily basis.

Caring For Me and You – a six week course for adults who care for people living with long term health condition or disability. The programme is about making time to look after your own health and needs. It helps you take control of your situation and a difference to your life.

 

“I had a letter asking me to go on a course in Sedgley, what impressed me from day one was the distraction method. I couldn’t believe what was happening to me. I’ve got a little workshop at the back of the house where I make things on a wood lathe, and I found that when I was working in there it took my mind off everything and I got no pain. The course helped me to see how I could use the things I love to manage my health.” (EPP participant)
