Great Ormond Street signs up for long-term conditions programme

  • Comment

Great Ormond Street Hospital has launched a series of workshops to help young people with long-term health conditions.  

Following the September 3 launch, attended by Labour MP and former health secretary Frank Dobson, patients aged 12-18 living with long-term health conditions will be entitled to attend the free workshops, which will be run over three weekly sessions.

The ‘Staying Positive’ workshops, run in partnership with the Expert Patient Programme, are designed to increase young people’s skills, confidence and ability to manage their condition.

Stephen Jacobs, Chair of EPP CIC, said: “Growing up is tough enough – even without having to cope with long-term health conditions - and the teenage years also mark the time in which self-management skills tend to decline. 

“That is why it is absolutely fantastic that Staying Positive is now set to be offered by one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals and that young people who attend the hospital are set to benefit from these free courses.”

 The GOSH workshops will take place on 10 October, 24 October and 7 November.
