Good afternoon all, we hope you are well.
Did you know there is an Expert Patient Programme, run by the NHS, which can help you with living with your disease? It is accessible via self-referral, you do not need to be referred by a doctor. It comes highly recommended by several of our members; see below for some feedback from people who have completed the programme;
“I’ve started swimming again which I never thought I would. It’s given me a new lease of life!”
“Meeting people has helped me understand more about myself and ways of managing things… It has been a well run course and everyone has been very helpful and caring.”
“It has helped me become more aware of my condition and how it affects me, and to feel that I can manage it to some extent through pacing, diet and relaxation techniques.”
“There’s a mix of people with different conditions on the course so it’s a good leveller.”
“It gave me more information and confidence to do normal things in life.”
The link for self-referral is below. The next course is due to start at the end of January.
