Dealing With Life After Cancer 

Free Virtual Courses Wellbeing Courses

Your local EPP Cymru area are currently delivering the following courses across Gwent via Zoom:

  • Living with Chronic Pain – 2:00 hour sessions over 6 weeks
  • Living with Long Term Health Conditions – 1.5 hour sessions over 6 weeks
  • Living Well with Diabetes – 2:00 hour sessions over 6 weeks
  • Cancer - ‘Thriving and Surviving’ – 2:00 hour sessions over 6 weeks

  • Caring for Me and You- 2:00 hour session over 6 weeks
  • Post Covid support dual sessions- 2:00 hour sessions twice in 1 week
  • Post Covid Recovery- 2:00 hour sessions over 6 weeks

Each six-week course is accompanied by an introductory session that gives an overview of Zoom & its functions, and also introduces the participants to the Tutors & the course they will be attending. The courses will be run in groups of up to ten participants, and aims to develop the fundamentals of self-management skills for people living with a range of health conditions and also for carers.

Participants will be led through a structured course by trained Tutors (the majority of which are Volunteers), who themselves have experience of making life changes as a result of a long term health condition.

  • Our EPP Cymru courses help give participants the confidence to take responsibility for their own care, whilst also encouraging them to work in partnership with health and social care professionals.
  • What makes EPP Cymru special is the sharing of skills and experience with people who have to deal with the same things as each other.
  • NB: EPP courses do not provide any health condition or treatment information, nor does it look at specific health needs.
  • All courses will be delivered virtually via Zoom, until further notice. If you would be interested in taking part in any of these courses, complete the Form on the next page and return to us via post or email.

UPDATE - 26/11/2021

The surgery holds an emergency clinic each weekday. This gives patients access to an appropriate clinician, within 24 hours, for urgent conditions. Same day appointments are bookable by contacting the surgery by telephone between 08:00 and 10:00 if you feel you have an urgent condition that cannot wait for a routine appointment. Please be prepared to give brief details of the reason why you are calling.
Please note that we run a nurse triage system where patients are allocated an appointment with a triage nurse who will assess your symptoms/concerns. Treatment will then be provided either by the nurse or one of the doctors. This will ensure each patient always sees the most appropriate clinician within an appropriate period of time.
We would like to remind patients if you need to access an emergency appointment to please call between 8am and 10am.
