Bassetlaw Staying Well programme

by | 14 October 2019 | Retford, Support Group, Worksop

The Staying Well Expert Patients Programme (EPP) is a ‘chronic disease self-management course’, a government initiative to help people living with long-term conditions maintain their health and improve their quality of life. This is through a self-management course led by someone else with a long-term health condition. The course has been designed to help people with a chronic or long-term illness regain as much control over their physical and emotional well-being as possible. It complements existing healthcare programmes and treatments, empowering participants to be more informed and better able to develop partnerships with their medical practitioners.
The course consists of two and a half hour sessions once a week for six weeks. For more information contact Bassetlaw Action Centre on 01777 709650 or ltupling@bassetlawactioncentre.org.uk.
