Angus residents living with fatigue are invited to come along to a free Fatigue Management Programme to help manage excessive tiredness caused by a variety of conditions.

The course, to be held in Arbroath, is delivered by a partnership involving physiotherapy, occupational therapy and psychology services and is open to anyone for whom fatigue is an ongoing issue, often due to conditions such as multiple sclerosis, arthritis or fibromyalgia.

The programme aims to help people understand their fatigue and to develop self-management mechanisms with the support of professionals and others affected by fatigue.

The programme is ideal for adults who want to manage their fatigue more effectively, regardless of the underlying cause.

The four-week course starts on Tuesday, August 16. These sessions will provide you with a range of information about fatigue and how to manage it, and is also an opportunity to meet with others in a similar situation.

If you would like to know more, please contact Michelle Spink, Primary Care Development Team on 01241 822544 or email achppatientcourses.tayside@nhs.net.

There is a variety of self-management courses and information events running in Angus. To receive advance information of meetings, register your name and address by emailing achppatientcourses.tayside@nhs.net
