NHS sessions: Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? + NTA Covid vaccination clinic 20th May


‘Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired?’
NHS/CCG  Expert Patients Programme
Six week sessions in June and July

NHS Covid Vaccination Clinic and Health Checks
12-4pm Thursday 20th May
New Testament Assembly, Beechcroft Road, SW17 7BU

June Pilgrim-Ndure of WCEN (Wandsworth Community Empowerment Network) would like to alert you to these sessions coming up.

NHS/CCG Expert Patients Programme

COVID affected our communities in so many ways and to better prepare ourselves for any future situations, why not encourage your members to join this six-weeks Expert Patients Programme. 

These sessions will be delivered online by our NHS CCG partners and aimed at those with Long Term Conditions, such as diabetes, obesity, IBS, COPD, heart conditions and even persistent pain.  

I have listed below some of the key things to keep in mind, when attending this virtual EPP session:

  • Sessions will last 2.5 hours.
  • Participants will need to have an email address, to receive weekly information and resources.
  • Participants must use a webcam during the course (this is so that the tutors can be sure they are safe and that their environment enables confidentiality).
  • We will need to have participants’ home addresses, allowing us to send course material.
  • You must live in the SWL NHS catchment area (mainly Wandsworth or Merton) 

I expect these sessions to start at the beginning of June, allowing them to conclude before the end of July. 

If you require any further information or interested in taking part in these sessions, please email me at june@wcen.org.uk.
