Building local communities

09 Oct 2019
NAPC Keynote

This session will explore how local areas can harnass the power of communities by building relationships and enabling all parts of the community to play a role in the health and wellbeing of populations. This involves identifying community assets, co-designing, collaborative leadership, and taking a preventative and population health approach to health and care. The session will hear examples of local areas using this approach – including an update on the Wigan Deal.

Over the last seven years, Wigan Council have adopted a radical new approach to delivering services based on an informal agreement between the council and the people who live there as well as working with NHS and other partners. The session will also hear from North Halifax Primary Care Home, an established primary care network, which has worked with its community and developed a population health management approach, as well as national ADASS case studies on providing solutions to reflect local needs.
