Do you have a long-term health condition? Want to feel more in control?

Locala is happy to promote the Expert Patients Programme which could be for you…

This free seven week course is for anyone with a long-term health condition (a condition that cannot be cured but can be controlled by medication and other therapies) or illness who wants to learn self-management skills for controlling and improving their health.

Courses tutors are volunteers who themselves have experience of living with a long-term health condition. They focus on helping people deal with low self-esteem, physical problems and emotional problems such as anger, fear, frustration, tiredness and depression - evidence has shown that the skills and techniques learnt on the course help people to feel more in control.

The course takes place once a week and there are courses throughout the year. The next courses running in both north and south Kirklees, are:

Brian Jackson House, Huddersfield - every Monday 10.00 - 12.30 from 6 June to 18 July.

Dewsbury Health Centre - every Tuesday 10.00 - 12.30 from 7 June to 19 July.
