Talking Health Road Map

People living with long term conditions, health care professionals and commissioners of self-management support need reliable information about what self-management support is available, where it is being delivered, how it can be accessed, and evidence (if any) to show that it is a cost effect way to support the development of self care knowledge, confidence and skills. The Tool Kit includes details about existing self-management support across the CCG at a particular point in time; namely September 2012.

This toolkit is NOT regulary updated.
