The Expert Patients Programme (EPP for short) is a FREE course designed for adults living with any long-term health condition(s) such as arthritis, epilepsy, MS, diabetes, heart disease, ME, Parkinson's disease and back pain.
The EPP aims to help you to take more control of your health by learning new skills to manage your condition better on a daily basis.
EPP courses are run by people who have personal experience of a long term health condition -people who really understand the day to day problems and how to meet the challenges. They help others to learn new skills,and gain the confidence and knowledge to manage and live with their condition.

Looking After Me is a free six week course of self-management workshops for adults who care for someone living with a long term health condition or disability. The course allows carers to make time to look after their own health needs, and is led by tutors who themselves have personal experience of caring for a relative. The course aims to help carers develop new skills to help them cope with their caring situation and to develop the confidence to take more control over their lives. They also meet others who share similar experiences.
