The Self Management and Co-production Hub brings together key ALLIANCE programmes contributing to the delivery of health and social care integration and transformation of primary care. The Hub builds capacity and shares learning about new ways of working which puts people in ‘the driving seat’ and helps them to live their lives better, on their terms.

About Self Management

A way of living and working that means people living with long term conditions feel more in control of their own health and wellbeing.

Self management is about people living with long term conditions being in ‘the driving seat’. It supports people to live their lives better, on their terms.

Self management supports and encourages people living with long term conditions to access information and to develop skills to find out what’s right for their condition and, most importantly, right for them.

Life can be better with self management. Being told you have a condition for which there may be no cure can be devastating. Individuals respond in individual ways. It can often have a profound impact on a person’s well-being and self-esteem.

Together with health professionals and others who provide support, self management can help people to make decisions that are right for their life.

Self management can mean people being:

- Better informed about their condition(s)
- Better prepared for everyday challenges
- Better supported when they need it

The Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland works to embed this approach across Scotland through our self management work:

- Self Management Fund
- Self Management Network Scotland
- House of Care
- Integration Support
- Co-Production
