Living Well Programme

Living Well is a free self-management programme. Self-management is what a person does every day to manage their long-term health condition. This may include making choices to improve your health such as becoming more active, eating more healthily and stopping smoking. It may also include more complex tasks such as taking medication, monitoring your symptoms, coping with the emotional aspects of the condition and communicating with healthcare professionals. 
Living with a long-term health condition can be challenging but may be especially so during Covid 19. The Living Well programme supports you to develop the skills which will help you to live well with a long-term health condition/s. The Living Well programme has proven to be effective in helping people to manage their health conditions better.
