As part of our Building Health Partnerships: Self-care programme, we are pleased to invite you to the first Building Health Partnerships North Central London sector-wide session.

 

The Building Health Partnerships (BHP) Self-care programme provides funded support to enable Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STP) engage with the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector and citizens on wellbeing and self-care priorities.

 

BHP and the North Central London (NCL) STP will work together to develop the emerging Care Closer to Home Integrated Networks (CHINs) based in GP practices, and support CHINs to better engage the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise support.

 

This initial sector-wide partnership session will focus on social prescribing and how it can deliver the STP Health and Care Closer to Home Plans, in which CHINs play a key role.

 

As the first BHP sector-wide partnership event, the session will have the following outcomes:

  • Defining what we mean by Social Prescribing – ensuring consistency of understanding
  • Providing an overview of the national context
  • Hearing from existing areas of practice – how they were established; practical advice; potential barriers
  • Establishing existing NCL practice and gap analysis
  • Action planning for future NCL Social Prescribing provision – CCG actions and shaping the STP-wide approach

 

There will be a series of future sector-wide sessions that will enable NCL partners to shape and deliver the self-care strategy to deliver the STP Health and Care Closer to Home plans.

More about the programme

The Building Health Partnerships (BHP) Self-care programme provides funded support to enable Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) footprints to engage with the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector and citizens on wellbeing and self-care priorities.

Jointly funded by NHS England and the Big Lottery Fund and delivered in partnership by Social Enterprise UK and IVAR the programme will run from April 2017 to June 2018. 

The BHP programme takes a dual focus combining relationship building with agreeing and implementing joint action. STP areas in the programme will be able to access a mixture of facilitated support, expert input, links to other networks and initiatives and communications expertise.

The programme is intended to support STPs to more effectively engage with all the providers and people necessary to meet their plan objectives.
