Health Beyond Healthcare
With the return of the NHS’ People’s Transformathon we remember back to January where WCEN delivered an online panel with David Bradley – CEO SWLSTG Mental Health Trust, Suliman Gani – Imam Tooting, Geetha Maheshwaran – Sree Ghanapathy Temple, Dr. Carlis Douglas – NTA Tooting and Pastor Freddie Brown NTA Tooting.
How to design and deliver services is in the hands of the communities. Services do not create health, people do. The role of services is to remove barriers preventing people and their communities from doing so. This session will introduce the work of WCEN which supports a network of community and faith based organisations and citizens who are working collaboratively to improve the way health and social care services are designed, delivered and received in their area. This includes training local faith leaders as systemic family therapists, and members of community networks as nutritionist and exercise leaders, ‘task shifting’ prevention and early intervention directly into the hands of people and places.
