Patient Self Care

Patient Self Care Welcome to Patient Self Care.

Here you will find a range of resources, including a section with general information to help access “Self Care and Support” to help manage long term conditions, for patients, their carers, family and friends. Please read this first as this will be relevant for everyone.

“Self Help” briefly outlines this facility and includes the local service “Self Help Shropshire.” This contains details of local self help peer support groups and is part of a wider Community Directory.

For those with a long-term health condition, there are details on how to make and use your own care plan, called a "Wellbeing Plan."

There is also information to help support those with particular “Long Term Health Conditions”.

Included in the “Self Care and Support” and “Long Term Health Conditions” sections, you will find separate listings of some Shropshire and National Services. These provide information for each service listed and a web link for further details.

The listings for Shropshire Services show Health Services first, followed by services from the Local Authority, Self Help Peer Support Groups, Charities and Voluntary organisations, then miscellaneous providers where appropriate.

The listings for National Services show Health Services first, followed by services from Charities and Voluntary organisations, then miscellaneous providers where appropriate.
