Listen, Empathize, Agree, Partnership (LEAP) - A multi-agency Mental Health and Wellbeing Team consisting of health and social care professionals has now been established at The Lawn, Victoria and White Rose GP Practices, serving a total population of 18,600.The team are helping and supporting people with mental health issues and referring and signposting them into community based support, building excellent working relationships and network with these services.
The North NCN hosted the Living Well Living Longer Health Check. The programme invites residents, age 40-64 (who are not currently on a chronic disease register), who live in the most deprived areas of ABUHB, to receive a cardiovascular risk assessment – a “mid-life MOT”. Individuals are then supported to identify lifestyle changes to lower their identified risks and signposted to local services such as Stop Smoking Wales, National Exercise Referral Scheme (NERS), Adult Weight Management Services and the Gwent Drug & Alcohol Service (GDAS). This is a Welsh Government Tackling Poverty priority and is being delivered by Aneurin Bevan University Health Board and Public Health Wales.
