To give better health, more control, and peace of mind to all.
MySelfCare is inspired to bring more control, and total peace of mind to the lives of people who are living with long-term health conditions. Currently, the NHS budget is at £116 billion, with 70% of this spent on managing long-term health conditions. We want to help the NHS and the individuals by providing more effective self-care; giving more control to paitients and their loved ones by allowing them to effectively manage diabetes, high blood pressure, heart arrhythmia and more.
The emotive story of one of our team members, Lesley, shows why we have launched MySelfCare, and how it can save lives and provide reassurance to the loved ones of people who are managing long-term healthconditions. Lesley received a distressing call informing her that her diabetic friend had been admitted into intensive care, at a London hospital. Living on her own, her friend had experienced a rapid deterioration over three days of her diabetic condition. With nobody around her, she was not able to measure her blood glucose levels, and after these torrid three days her son found her in a collapsed state. After being at the hospital for seven days, she was diagnosed with kidney damage and is now on dialysis. She is also awaiting a kidney transplant. Lesley says that if her friend had a package like MySelfCare then it would have allowed her son to notice what was happening with his mum sooner, and he could have helped her during the three-day period. This would have prevented her collapse and may have saved her kidneys.
Lesley’s story shows why MySelfCare has been launched, and how important it is for the peace of mind and health of people managing diabetes and various other long-term conditions. To watch her story and stories like Lesley’s please click here
