Self Care Week takes place this week (17-23 November) and NHS West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group is inviting patients or family carers in the Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells areas to an event to discuss self care.
The Patients and Carers Forum takes place on 21 November from 12.30pm to 3pm at the Riverside Centre, Tonbridge, TN9 1RE and will include lunch.
It will be an opportunity to:
- understand what self care means to patients and carers
- explore what might help patients/carers to be in more control of their own care and make best use of support
- consider what the following definition means in practice – ‘Self care: The ability to live with my condition in my own way, with the best possible advice, appropriate support and information, so I can make my own medical and lifestyle choices. My life, in my hands, with the best possible support to help me live as I want to.’ This definition of self care was created by a group of patients and carers in west Kent.
