About the Expert Patient Programme
Nobody knows you better than you know yourself. So, doesn’t it make sense that the same will be true when it comes to managing your health condition?
Our self-management course – the Wakefield Expert Patients Programme (EPP) – compliments existing care you get from the NHS by helping you understand your health better – we can help you become an expert in managing your own condition.
EPP is a self-management course run by your local NHS. It is free of charge, informal and friendly and you may even find it could change your life.
Courses are designed to enable people to take control of their health by learning new skills through tried and tested techniques, which not only increases confidence and your ability to cope but it can also make people less dependent on health and social care. That could mean fewer trips to your local surgery or hospital!
EPP runs in easy-to-access venues in Wakefield and the Five Towns, so there will be a course running near you. We’re ready to help.
