Expert Patient Programme
Areas covered include:
- Healthy eating and gentle exercise
- Dealing with pain and extreme tiredness
- Relaxation techniques
- Coping with feelings of low mood and depression
- Working effectively with your Health Professional
Courses are delivered by volunteer tutors who all have long-term health conditions themselves. The tutors really understand the problems and anxieties people can often experience if they’re living with a long-term and chronic condition and are able to offer the correct guidance and support to those who are booked onto a course.
EPP will generally accept you if you are aged 18+ and living with a long-term chronic health condition. You must be independent though, or be accompanied by a support worker if needed.
Courses last for 7-8 weeks and run throughout the year. For details of forthcoming courses, please call us.
Pre-booking is essential. To find out more call 0800 111 1151 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
