Expert Patient Programme starting soon in Wilmslow

Expert Patient Programme starting soon in Wilmslow
11 February 2014

The Expert Patients Programme is running a course in Wilmslow later this month for people living with long-term health conditions within Eastern Cheshire. 

The Expert Patients Programme, Cheshire (EPPC) is a QISMET accredited self-management course designed to help patients gain control of their long-term condition, gain self-confidence and enjoy what life has to offer, but on their terms and not on those of their condition. The generic EPP course is available to any adult living with one or more long term health conditions.

We aim to encourage lifestyle changes such as healthy eating, gentle exercise and relaxation by focussing on key skills of goal setting, action planning and problem solving.

 

The course is taking place at the Meeting Room in Wilmslow Library on Monday afternoons from 1.30pm - 4.00pm, 24th February - 7th April 2014.
