Lynne has recently joined Bridges as a Lived Experience Associate; she had retired from The Self-management Partnership and saw this as an opportunity to continue using her skills and understanding of self-management. Lynne was diagnosed with MS in 1995 and moved from ‘sufferer’ to ‘living with’ after attending a Chronic Disease Self-management Programme and training to become a course tutor in 2003 with The Expert Patients Programme. In 2004 she joined EPP as a Lead Trainer. Whilst there she was a member of the National Support team for Co-Creating Health, a project funded by The Health Foundation. She co-authored The SMP, a 7-week self-management programme for patients, delivered in partnership by people living with a health condition and a health professional. In 2011, after being made redundant, she formed The Self-management Partnership with Kerry Hepworth.
As a team we share the same ethos and philosophy that drives our passion to create the best experience and environment for patients to live well. Bridges provide opportunities for both patients and professionals to work collaboratively to enhance self-management skills, knowledge and confidence.
