Description

North London Sustainability and Transformation Partnership: How can Social Prescribing support the emerging Care Closer to Home Integrated Networks (CHINs)

You are invited to the first Building Healthy Partnerships North Central London sector-wide session.

The Building Healthy 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.

The Self Care Forum’s definition of Self Care is:

The actions that individuals take for themselves, on behalf of and with others in order to develop, protect, maintain and improve their health, wellbeing or wellness.

More about the programme: Jointly funded by NHS England and the Big Lottery Fund and delivered in partnership by Social Enterprise UK and the Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR) the programme will run from April 2017 to June 2018.

Our area was successful in bidding for this support which will help us all to work together in developing our existing strengths, particularly with citizens and the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.

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. For more details see here.
