PEOPLE in Angus can log on to NHS Tayside’s website to visit the Angus Community Health Partnership (CHP) page, to view more than 40 Angus CHP services, classes and programmes covering a range of long term conditions.
Angus CHP, with support from voluntary groups, Angus Council and national charities, run various self management classes, programmes and information events aimed at helping people to live better with their condition.
The web page has information on diabetes, arthritis, dementia, pain management, mental health, smoking cessation and weight management, Tayside Cancer Support and pulmonary and cardiac rehabilitation.
These self-management classes and information events are held throughout the year.
This online resource will make it easier to find out information on the support groups and services available locally as well as support that can be accessed online.
Statistics show 40 per cent of the Scottish population live with a long term condition, making self-management very important.
