Health and Care without boundaries

Health and Care without boundaries | NHS England

When the NHS and local government work together residents quality of life improve. Wealden District Council and Herstmonceux GP John Simmons worked together to secure a health and wellbeing coach based at the GP surgery; reducing repeat visits by 61%. The scheme is now being expanded thanks to the local CCG.

NHS England has produced a short film which follows Angela, who was widowed around 18 months ago. Isolation soon followed, but through this scheme she has reconnected with others and now has the confidence to better manage her long term conditions.
