Supporting our patients confidence to access tools aimed at improving their self-management is paramount as a vital first step toward patient engagement and health literacy.  At NHS Sunderland we have developed a number of resources and we are now delighted to be able to share them with the Simple Telehealth Community.

In 2017 we were able to access NHS England’s New Care Models Programme funding, and chose Flo as the ideal subject matter given the progress we have already had in Sunderland.  This funding facilitated the production of patient leaflets that have been designed to be used with, and are applicable to, a multitude of patients and conditions.  It is with great delight that "All Together Better Sunderland" is able to share this resource for use within the Simple Telehealth Community.  

Please feel free to adopt and use these leaflets to support your patients, we hope that you all get great benefit out of them and a big thank you goes to Hannah Mountford at Simple Shared Healthcare for the fantastic content.
