In June 2016, we published our latest evidence – an evaluation report on our Wellness Package, which included our flagship Living Well course, plus 12 months of follow-up support. The package was funded by the Department of Health, reaching 519 people over 18 months.
The main findings showed that most participants on the course experienced:
Reduced cancer-related worry and stress
Increased Patient Activation
Improved lifestyle – meaning better diet, increased exercise and stress management
Better self-management of health: reduced reliance on GPs and NHS services
