I support the ALLIANCE’s call to spread self management support for people with long term conditions. Every day at Thistle, we see (and support) people whose lives have changed significantly because they have learned how to manage life with a long term condition (or conditions) better.   And we know that those people are not only able to get on with living the life they want, but are then able to make real, valued contributions to their communities.  We need to support more people to be take control of their lives in this way. It’s that simple. Diana, CEO of Thistle Foundation, Edinburgh
