Devon Referral Support Services have developed My Health website to offer information to patients in Devon to help them make healthcare decisions.
Their aim is to empower people to be healthier, better informed and to take greater responsibility for their own health and health choices. They will do this by providing evidence based information that:
- enables patients to make informed decisions about their care and treatment options
- promotes Shared Decision Making conversations between patient and clinician
- promotes self-management of their conditions
- promotes a healthy lifestyle
- informs people in Devon about local services and support groups
