The answer to providing person-centred care…

 self management uk, the only credible provider: a former NHS and now not-for-profit organisation; strongly endorsed by the NHS and (with) a strong track record of successful delivery of generic long-term condition patient education programmes

a London CCG Commissioner.

Improving the ability of patients with long-term conditions to self-manage, address modifiable risk factors and adhere to clinical care protocols such as the appropriate use of prescribed medication, has been shown to improve their wellbeing and reduce the costs to health and social care systems. There is strong evidence that people living with long-term conditions are able to better self-care if they are provided with appropriate guidance, are motivated and have access to relevant support.

We have 15 years’ experience of delivering structured education to people with one or more long-term condition. Self management uk exists to improve the health & wellbeing of people with long-term health conditions. We focus on the person and not the condition. We deliver evidence-based self-management services for diverse populations with physical and/or mental health conditions. 

Outcomes

Our services are outcomes focused and recent evidence of the outcomes achieved after delivery of our self-management uk services include:

- 57% reduction in unplanned A&E admissions

Our approach

Self management uk uses the Patient Activation Measure (PAM) to understand the needs of people before we invite them to an intervention.

This approach is person-centred.

This approach saves commissioners money.

This approach involves community and wider health service providers.
