EPP Cymru (Education Programmes for Patients) offers free NHS self-management courses for people living with a long term health condition, or for people who care for a friend or relative with a long term health condition.

The courses aim to give participants help and guidance on any issues surrounding their condition, and they cover topics such as pain, relaxation, depression, tiredness, action planning, healthy eating, exercise, motivation and more.

The courses run over a period of six weeks, with one 2.5 hour session per week, which is always at the same time, in the same place.

All of the courses are completely free of charge, and there are courses running throughout the Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff.

For further information, or to book onto a course, contact the EPP Cymru office on 029 2035 0620, or alternatively you can reach EPP Cymru via email at mark.tully@wales.nhs.uk
