PEOPLE living with long-term conditions are being invited to become expert patients.
NHS Kirklees is inviting locals to join the free Expert Patients Programme, which is starting at three venues next month.
Weekly programmes start at the Brian Jackson Centre and Birstall Community Centre on June 6 and Dewsbury Health Centre on June 10. The sessions will run for seven weeks, from 10am to 12.30pm.
They are part of a national programme of courses that aim to help participants feel better and more in control of their lives.
Joanne Gould, Expert Patient Programme coordinator at NHS Kirklees, said the programme had been shown to make a very big difference to people living with long-term conditions.
“Meeting with others who share similar experiences helps people to learn to think more positively about themselves.”
