The CCG are running a series of self-care classes to help educate Stockport people on how to look after themselves and others when they are ill, and also where to go for help and advice.

The classes will cover topics such as:

  • Mindfulness/managing stress
  • Dental hygiene
  • CPR and defibrillation
  • Inhaler techniques
  • Healthy lifestyles
  • Local pharmacy
  • Expert patient programme
  • Common childhood illnesses
  • First aid
  • Back care
  • Health screening
  • Choosing the right place for help and advice

These classes are open to anyone registered with a Stockport GP, however we are keen to encourage parents with young children and people with long-term conditions to come along. Therefore if you know of anyone that you think would particularly benefit from these classes please ask them to get in touch.

More information, including dates of the classes is available on the CCG website at http://stockportccg.org/self-care-classes or by calling 0161 426 5242.
