The service was commissioned in 2014 by NHS South Devon and Torbay CCG to support 200 people per year with long-term health conditions over a two-year period. It completed on 30 April 2016. Its aim was to support the development of the knowledge, skills and confidence of patients in the 36 GP practices in the CCG area. A desired outcome was a lower dependency and better, more effective, usage of NHS services.
This pilot built on the experience Torbay had gained from being one of the areas supported by the Health Foundation’s Co-Creating Health Programme; an initiative between 2007 and 2012, which focused on supporting people with depression.
Know Your Own Health partnered with Old Farm Surgery and Devon Partnership NHS Trust to deliver the Live Well Feel Better service in South Devon and Torbay.
