My Health, Stay Well, In Shape for Surgery

My Health

“MyHealth – Devon has been developed by Devon Referral Support Service, part of the Wider Devon Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) with the support of local clinicians.  

Their aim is to empower people to be healthier, better informed and to take greater responsibility for their own health and health choices.  They do this by providing evidence based information that:  

  • enables patients to make informed decisions about their care and treatment options
  • promotes Shared Decision Making conversations between patient and clinician
  • promotes self-management of their conditions
  • promotes a healthy lifestyle
  • informs people in Devon about local services and support groups 

The MyHealth website provides medical information for use to support self-care and shared decision making. The advice given may not be suitable for all individuals and is not a substitute for professional medical care by a qualified healthcare professional. You should check with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns about your condition or treatment before taking, or not taking, any action on the basis of the content on our website. It is up to you to contact a health professional if you are concerned about your health. “
