NHS Ayrshire & Arran is an integrated health system that encompasses primary care, secondary care and community services. The site’s aim in in Co-Creating Health Phase 2 was to enable people with a long-term condition (LTC), COPD to feel empowered, confident and supported to manage their condition in a way that improved their health and wellbeing, while demonstrating quantifiable benefits of this approach to the health and social care systems. This involved developing sustainable and flexible training opportunities in supporting self- management for clinicians and creating a sustainable self-management programme for patients that can be extended to all LTCs. The evaluation has three elements and aims to describe the:

  • effectiveness of Working in Partnership, the locally developed clinician eLearning module
  • effectiveness of Moving on Together the locally developed patient self-management programme
  • impact that supporting self-management can have on patients’ use of health services.
