Reading Well for Long Term Conditions

We’ve launched a new scheme called Reading Well for Long Term Conditions – a book list for people with long term health conditions and their relatives and carers. The books provide information and advice to support living well with a long term condition.

The list covers conditions such as diabetes and stroke, as well as common symptoms such as pain and fatigue.

The books are free to reserve and can be borrowed for up to 6 weeks. Browse and reserve the books for free here  or check them out on Pinterest

The books are also available as eBooks, visit the Overdrive website to borrow them.  https://norfolk.overdrive.com/
