“Team Around The Place” in Social Prescribing Video

Posted on the 24th March 2021

Team Around The Place is a group of frontline professionals and organisations coming together to support the community, so they are empowered to find solutions that will improve their health and wellbeing. This is often by using services provided by the voluntary and community sector.

The Team Around The Place in Cheadle is one of eight local teams. It is captained by Lizzie Austin of the Pure Innovations-led Wellbeing and Independence Network (WIN).  Lizzie is pictured above (right) with captains from other teams:  Marie O’Malley, Sharon Fallows, and Laura McDonald.

The pandemic has produced sharp rises in anxiety, depression, money worries, caring responsibilities and more. These can lead to more pressure on GPs, hospitals and other primary services.

The work of Teams Around The Place has potential to head this off and reduce the financial burden on the NHS.

Great work in very difficult times.
