Social Prescribing
Northamptonshire is to become the first area in England to introduce an integrated cross-sector and county-wide service supporting people to take control of their health and wellbeing as long-term funding has been approved for Social Prescribing. To find out more please visit www.northamptonshire.gov.uk.

Personal Care and Support Service.
NPFG has had a meeting with Paul Shanley, Commissioning Manager for Personal Care and Support Service. This service was formally know as Continuing & Domiciliary Care and is shortly up for tender. If this affects you, please email enquiries@npfg.co.uk and tell us what part of the continuing care/ domicillary care service you currently value, help us to identify any gaps and tell us what you would like to see in Northamptonshire in the future. We need to have this information by the end of February please.

Transport
NPFG continues to try to engage with the Transport department. It would be helpful if parent carers can cc NPFG.KimS@gmail.com into any correspondence with the department so that we can collate information to try to prioritise the problem hot spots.

Please share the above information/events with your networks. This is a real opportunity to make changes to the current system. We are looking forward to your bookings and hearing your ideas at the various events. Thank you!
