For professionals

There is an array of local and national support available, some of which we have included in the resource. We worked alongside pharmacists, social prescribers, doctors and local residents, with input from the NHS, council and Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprises colleagues (VCFSE) to develop the resource. We also piloted it back in January 2023.

For Cheshire East Council staff, there is the Healthy Lifestyles E-Learning on the Learning Lounge

This version can be used when prescribing a patient a new treatment or setting out a new treatment plan to offer support from different locally commissioned services and support self help methods. Download here:
