Patient Support Seminars
One of the most important parts of healthcare that I stress to everyone again and again is the importance of being educated about your health. So that you are making an informed choice about what is right for YOU and your life, your needs.
But that isn’t easy in such a complicated field, one that comes with it’s own set of words (which can mean very different things to what you think they do!) and so very many options.
Combine that with the added confusion that many of our patients have of trying to understand healthcare in a different country and possibly in a second (or third!) language at a time when you are probably not at your best and . . . . it’s a tricky situation!
So, following on from our podcast we also want to give you the opportunity to ask your own questions.
So we are starting our Patient Support Seminars.
Free seminars, with experts, limited to just 8 people so that you can ask your questions and get useful information about what you can do.
