Don’t let the fun and frivolity of the festive season play havoc with your mental and physical wellbeing.
NHS staff working within the community will soon be able to help their patients access a wide range of additional health and social care support thanks to a new system designed by the voluntary sector to make it quicker and easier to share information.
Community health services in Suffolk have signed up to the ‘Warm Handover’ online referral system. It allows staff to make multiple referrals at the click of a button to any other organisation which is enrolled with the scheme, which includes the police, Suffolk Family Carers, Age UK Suffolk, Suffolk County Council and Suffolk Mind.
Local people joined professionals working in their community today, to celebrate the official launch of the Community Connector pilot scheme at Shotley Village Hall.
The pilot is part of Suffolk County Council’s work to join professionals working in health and social care with voluntary groups that provide direct support to promote social prescribing.
