A new training programme has been created by Collaborative Newcastle which provides multi-agency leadership development across the whole system, for senior staff at the health and care organisations in the City.
Social prescribing – what it is, how it helps and why Collaborative Newcastle partners are working together to help it grow.
Across the country, care homes found themselves at the sharp end of Covid-19.
With a critical role to play in caring for some of the most vulnerable in society, care homes in Newcastle – like counterparts around the world – faced major challenges, not least a global shortage of PPE.
At the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic the virus was spreading rapidly in the North East, leading to increased disease and significant pressure on hospital beds.
A lack of testing capacity proved problematic and it was taking too long for results to be shared with local directors of public health.
Newcastle benefits from really high-quality services for children and families, committed and expert staff teams across the public and voluntary sector, strong working relationships across organisations, as well as good resources and community infrastructure.
