Service to help people with long term health conditions
DORSET Clinical Commissioning Group have awarded one of their first new contracts to a partnership of local organisations that will provide an innovative service to help people living with a long term health condition and their carers.
The partnership of organisations awarded the contract includes - Help and Care, Dorset Healthcare, Dorset County Hospital, The Royal Bournemouth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Know Your Own Health, BH Live and Boots UK.
The new service is set to equip people with a long term health condition with skills and information that will help them to manage their condition and make informed choices about the support they require. People will be able to choose from a range of support to suit them including; advice over the phone, face to face guidance from a self-management coach, self-help groups and an interactive website.
Marianne Storey, director of development at Help and Care said: "Having a health condition that you know will last a life time can be difficult and can make people feel unsure about how they are going to manage. Living with a condition for life doesn't have to be confusing or daunting."
