Community champions

Community Champions is a Public Health initiative that builds on the skills and knowledge of local communities by bringing local people and services together to improve health and wellbeing and to reduce inequalities

The Community Champions projects work with the CCG to run two health campaigns a year, which provides enhanced opportunities for us to engage with hard to reach communities, particularly with those who experience poor health outcomes.

  • Promote GP extended hours
  • Increase uptake of flu vaccination
  • Encourage use of local pharmacies
