     Introduction

    Wandsworth Self-Management Service (WSMS)

    Self-management means that you don’t have to manage alone without any support; it is not a replacement for your health services. It is about encouraging you through building on your skills, knowledge and confidence, taking a more active role in managing your health and understanding your condition. It helps people to make more informed choices about how and when to get different kinds of support.
