“All the agencies working together in Burnley Wood have their own skill sets. The question was around linking them all together, which is what Well North did.”
Dr Santhosh Davis, GP, Burnley Wood Medical Centre
“Our work with Well North in Burnley Wood has resulted in real benefits to patients, staff and the community. For starters we have strengthened relationships in the community, and this has helped us make notable improvements to the environment, housing and the local economy for the Burnley Wood community. All of this has begun to have a positive impact on the poor health and wellbeing that we see in the area. There is a lot of enthusiasm and commitment locally to make a difference for people by working together. We have achieved progress in a way that hasn’t been achieved before because of this."
NHS East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group
“It was music to our ears at Stocksbridge Community Leisure Centre to hear of Well North’s refreshing approach and commitment to a new way of community development. This was not just words but backed up with real money!!
