Cwm Taf University Health Board are facilitating a course to help people manage their long-term health conditions.

Education Programme for Patients Cymru (EPP) is an NHS based self-management course helping people to learn different skills which can improve their quality of life and better manage their health condition.

The EPP course is run by volunteers and led by tutors who have experience of living with a long-term health condition.

Course tutors will examine different ways in which to help patients manage the effects of living with their condition, whether it’s related to pain, tiredness, dealing with anger or frustration, depression, low self-image or basic advice on eating healthy - all of these issues and much more is covered in the sessions.

The courses are run at various venues throughout Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf and are all free of charge. Groups consist of 8-16 participants that meet over a six week period for approximately two and half hours each week.

Feedback from group members has been very positive saying they: “felt more confident and control of their life” and being “more realistic about the impact it has on them and their family”. Other course participants have said they: “Take their medication more effectively” and have “developed effective relationships with those caring for them”.
