Expert Patients Programme

Important notice

In 2016 a review of Structured Self-Management Programmes was undertaken by Leeds City Council.

Following this review and pending the completion of a public consultation by our commissioners, Leeds Community Healthcare is no longer accepting referrals to its Expert Patient Programme.

Those currently attending courses will be provided with information about other opportunities for self-management and peer support.

If you have any queries regarding the Expert Patient Programme please contact Gill Whitehead, Clinical Service Manager on 01138434200 or at g.whitehead@nhs.net.

For details of the consultation/ engagement please contact: Helen Butters, Senior Associate Experience and Patient Engagement, Leeds South and East CCG. hbutters@nhs.net
