Self-care week: 14 November – 20 November


15 November 2016

Self-care week, organised by the Self-Care Forum, is an annual national awareness week that focuses on embedding support for self care across communities. This year’s theme is ‘Understanding Self Care for Life’.

Hillingdon CCG recently launched its MyHealth patient education and self-management programme, providing local people with advice on managing their conditions and improving their health and wellbeing. Self-management means that you don’t have to cope with your condition without any support.

Visit our new MyHealth website today and find out more:

  • We are developing a series of workshops focused upon a variety of topics including Diabetes, long term breathing problems, Heart Health, Childhood Asthma, Healthy Living and Dementia.
  • There are links to the major charities including Age UK, Diabetes UK, Dementia UK, Asthma UK, British Lung Foundation and British Heart Foundation as well as a growing list of local charities, active community groups and other support services.
  • We are working closely with Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Hillingdon Borough Council and each of our 46 GP surgeries.
