Our approach is not a "One-size-fits-all"

If you haven't already heard, the NHS is under extreme pressure to do more with less money.

Supporting patients with long-term health conditions to self-manage their health can improve clinical outcomes and can lead to more cost-effective use of health services. 

Unfortunately, demands on the system ultimately mean that the approach taken to provide self-management is not as patient-centred as patients need.

Our use of the Patient Activation Measure (PAM) tool triages patients to interventions which suit them better. We support them to live a better life with their long-term condition.
