During winter months hospitals can struggle to deal with the increasing demand for support. To ensure that people say well and access the support they need when they need it, we need the whole health and social care system to work together. This means everyone from hospitals, GP practices and community pharmacies, to national charities and local community groups.

VCSE organisations are embedded in communities and often interact with individuals before they come to the door of health services. This means they are uniquely placed to support people to stay well outside of hospital. Where going to hospital is best option for individuals, there is a role for the VCSE sector in supporting people when they go home. VCSE organisations also experience increased demand in winter, so it is vital for the voluntary and statutory sectors to share learning about what works and how to collaborate.

In this webinar colleagues from NHS England will share key advice and messages to give to individuals and communities to help them to stay well outside of hospital. We will also hear from charities on how they approach supporting communities during the winter months, and the support they need to do this well.

The webinar will last for one hour. Please follow this link to register.
