Patient Participant Groups to Launch Wellbeing Initiatives

In July, Wellbeing Enterprises CIC (WE) launched the Be the Change initiative in Halton. Be the Change gave Patient Participant Group’s (PPG) linked to GP Practices the opportunity to apply for funding to launch projects to help improve the wellbeing of patients and/or staff.

PPG members applied for up to £500 to get their idea up and running and WE were overwhelmed with fun and creative applications. Ideas were varied and ranged from creating ‘Feelgood Gardens’ to hosting wellbeing events for patients and providing paediatric first aid training for new parents and grandparents.

Carolyn Taylor, Services Manager at WE, said: “After seeing the exciting ideas that were submitted, I can’t wait to see them launch in Hough Green Health Park, Appleton Village Surgery, Brookvale, Weaver Vale and Tower House GP Practices!”

Mark Swift, WE’s Chief Executive Officer, continued: “It’s wonderful to see so many PPG members participating in Be the Change and put the wellbeing of their community at the heart of their practice. I’ve been blown away by the quality of the entries and cannot wait to see the positive impact the projects have on the wellbeing of the people and communities of Halton.”
