Improving Health and Wellbeing

“Living Well – it’s really about putting people at the centre of what they want to do, enabling them to live – as close as is possible – to the life they would like” voluntary sector worker

  • 20 per cent improvement in mental wellbeing
  • 67 volunteers + 12 co-ordinators
  • Recruited cohort now at just over 800
  • 20 per cent of people being supported are going on to become volunteers themselves

Improving the experience of care and support

“People on the ground need to be spreading the word” district nurse

  • Core induction training package produced
  • Community Line single access point now operational and being tested
  • MDT meetings guidance produced and shared

Reducing the cost of care and support

“The principles are sound and instinctively right, but time is needed to see the true impact” GP

So far we are seeing a reduction in:

  • Accident & Emergency activity
  • Emergency hospital admissions
  • Outpatient first appointments
  • Minor Injury Unit attendances

The quotes above are taken from our Learning Histories – a method of continual learning that we have adopted, which runs through the whole Living Well programme from front line teams to management boards. It is about listening to people involved in Living Well, hearing about their experiences and learning from them what works, what doesn’t, and what we improve.
