MyHealth in Hillingdon is a patient education and self-management programme.
There are a growing number of programmes throughout the UK helping support local people to take greater control of their own health and wellbeing.
Self-management means that you don’t have to cope with your condition without any support. Our workshop will hopefully give you a better understanding of how to manage your condition on a daily basis by providing practical solutions and advice helping you to feel more confident and in control.
Hillingdon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the NHS organisation responsible for planning and buying healthcare services 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.
The MyHealth website has been created to provide local people with information and advice on managing their conditions and improving their health and wellbeing and a useful directory of ‘community connections’ featuring support, self-help and activity groups in Hillingdon.
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 48 GP surgeries.
Our growing programme of workshops AND local support connections is intended to provide those living with long-term health conditions the help they need to make healthier choices and lead fuller, more active and healthier lives.
