      Fostering ‘Response-ability’

      Maintaining Resilience and Wellbeing in the face of a public health crisis: Fostering ‘Response-ability’ by remembering that we are capable of choosing our response to challenging situations.

      This is based on Epictetus’ understanding that ‘People are disturbed not by things but by the view they take of them.’ Hence, the key to emotional intelligence and wellbeing is not to avoid challenging situations; but rather to choose an effective attitude towards them.

      “So where does social prescribing go from here?”

      New blog post from Tim Anfilogoff (Head of Community Resilience at Herts Valleys CCG) about the lessons learnt from the COVID-19 response and the role of social prescribing. Really worth a read!

      I thought this sounded like a really interesting and innovative use of social prescribing:

      Accelerate and Elemental bring social prescribing to thousands of chronic wound patients in London.

      London-based Accelerate has partnered with Elemental Software to offer social prescribing services to thousands of patients with chronic wound and Lymphedema care needs whose long-term conditions impact their daily lives.

      City and Hackney CCG will be the first location for this service and will serve as a pilot, with plans for the further roll out of the Elemental platform by Accelerate across other areas this year. More than 200 patients at City and Hackney CCG will be involved.
