Health guides are updated

NEW versions of guides helping Ilkeston folk to manage long term illnesses have been published by NHS Derbyshire County.

Launched last year, the innovative Information Prescriptions act as a guide for patients suffering from asthma, arthritis and other chronic conditions by signposting them and their carers to information about prevention, diagnosis, treatment, follow-up care and healthy living

The updated guides are available by visiting www.derbyshirecounty.nhs.uk/long-term-conditions or by contacting the Patient Advice and Liaison Service on 0800 783 7279. Large print or Braille copies are available on request.
