Expert Patients Programme
The Expert Patients Programme (EPP) is a free 6-week course for people living
with any long-term health conditions or their carers. The course is 2.5 hours
per week and is delivered by trained lay tutors who themselves live with long
term conditions. EPP delivers practical evidence-based tools as well as drawing
on tutors’ own experiences of successful self-management, helping participants
to manage their health condition and feel more in control. Participants learn
- Manage symptoms
- Cope with stress, anxiety and depression
- Get the most out of local services and
relationships with health professionals
The course also covers problem-solving, decision-making, goal-setting,
relaxation techniques, healthy eating and more.
Being involved in the Expert Patients Programme gave me my
life back… Now it’s not just a struggle and rest, but joy too."
