Expert Patient Program

The Expert Patient Programme (EPP) is an NHS self management programme for anyone living with any long term condition(s). Groups of 8-16 participants, with a mix of different conditions, meet over six weekly sessions and are led through a structured course by trained tutors who are living with a long term condition. Each session (lasting two and a half hours) looks at ways to manage the effects of their conditions such as:

  • Dealing with pain and extreme tiredness
  • Coping with feelings of depression
  • Relaxation techniques and exercise
  • Healthy eating
  • Communicating with family, friends and health professionals
  • Planning the future
