Welcome to Talking Health Taking Action: Your One Stop Shop for Self-Management Support
With the NHS no longer holding a national licence for the range of self-management programmes that formed the NHS Expert Patients Programme (NHS EPP), this discussion paper looks at why these programmes are as relevant today as they were when they were first launched.

On 3 July 2017 Reading Well for Books launched Reading Well for long term conditions, a new scheme providing information and support for people living with a long term health condition and their carers.
The booklist covers general advice and information about living with a long term condition, common symptoms and titles focused on specific conditions such as arthritis, bowel conditions, diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
Jean Thompson was part of the Co-production Group involved in supporting the selection of the books. The good news is that the help book for the Stanford chronic disease self-management course (Self-management of Long-term Health Conditions: 3rd Edition) has been included on the list of publications.
The books will be available from all English public libraries from July 2017, the scheme aims to provide millions of people with the tools to better understand and confidently self-manage their conditions.
The Reading Agency is a national UK charity and inspires people to read for pleasure and wellbeing, and this is a new strand of the acclaimed Reading Well Books on Prescription programme into English libraries in association with The Society of Chief Librarians.
