Thank you. Your choice has been saved. You can change your preferences at any time.
The following resources (websites, fact-sheets, videos, etc) are provided by a variety of organisations. Some are national organisations such as Diabetes UK but there are also local services provided or commissioned by the NHS, local authority, charity or voluntary organisations as well as a range of other resources by national and local providers.
The Torbay Hospital website contains a wide range of leaflets to assist you with a wide range of conditions and guidance on what to do in particular circumstances.
The NHS website also provides information, advice and guidance for hundreds of health conditions along with general health information.
These resources are checked at the time of being added; please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you find any that need updating.
The Trust has developed a programme to help local people struggling with long-term health conditions; build confidence and learn how to manage their condition(s), including mental health issues such as anxiety, stress and depression, better.
The programme helps you to focus on you as a person, not as a long-term condition. It helps you to discover new strengths and rediscover old ones to keep yourself well. It also aims to boost your self-confidence and resilience, to help you cope better emotionally, psychologically and practically with your condition. This is not therapy but more therapeutic!
Who can attend?
Age 18+ (please be advised that we will be running courses specifically for young people in the future and will be advertising these as and when available).
Specifically for people who you feel are overwhelmed with their health issues or who are not so good at self-management. If you wish to bring along a friend, family member, or a carer for support, please do.
The NHS website is comprehensive and gives information and guidance for hundreds of health conditions, healthy living topics, a guide to social care, health news and services near you.
