New resource launched

A NEW self management resource was launched by NHS Tayside at Springfield Health Centre, Arbroath, on Monday.

The ‘Self Management Toolkit for Professionals’, which will be issued to all clinical staff across Angus Community Health Partnership, aims to help health professionals who care for people living with a long term condition.

This new resource will now mean that information on what help is available locally, as well as the many different services that are on offer for people living in Angus, are now collated together in one handy booklet.

Health professionals including local GPs, physiotherapists, palliative care specialists as well as representatives from the local volunteer centre attended the launch to hear about the practical applications of this new resource.
